    From Saturday:

    Press w/belt - 170 x 5, 4, 4, 4
    DL w/belt - 480 x 4

    Tweaked my lower back on deadlifts. Got 4, but 5 was not going to happen.
    Just nursing my low back since then. Did a heavy single squat yesterday at 405 and called it a day.

    Today, I felt a bit better,, though my back was still quite sore. So I did the following:

    SSB squat w/belt - 385 x 3 x 3
    Bench - 275 x 4 x 4 (tough to get in an arch on the first couple of sets)
    BW rows - 24 + 9 + 4 (plus a short static hold)

    Not just good, it's good enough...

    This morning:

    SSB squat w/belt - 375 x 6r x 3s
    Bench - 270 x 5r x 3s
    Rows - 225 x 12 x 3

    Things moved well. Not an easy workout, but no grinds. Very happy.
    I've slowly gained a bit of weight over the summer. Started at mid 220s and and am now at upper 220s and nearing 230.
    Despite this, my belt and waist are the same, so I got that going for me.

    starting strength coach development program
    Today:

    Press w/belt - 170 x 5, 5, 4, 4
    DL w/belt - 405 x 3 x 6

    Decent. My press is pretty much on life-support, but I'm still able to make progress. Heavy squat yesterday made deadlifts seem hard - low back soreness, but they moved ok.
    After the 2nd set, I finally loosened up and felt better.
