Sami's Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Finally moved away from novice. My old log.
My youtube channel.
Current PRs:
Squat: 137.5kg 3x5
Bench: 85kg x 5
Deadlift: 165kg x 3
OHP: 52.5kg x 2
Bodyweight: 85kg
EDIT: I'll be doing Starr's 5x5 using this calculator (http://www.vicjg.com/aspx/madcowint.aspx) for Squat, bench and OHP. Deadlift is still going up 5kg per week just doing 2 sets of 3, so I'll milk that for a while.

Squat felt good. Bench was decent as well, arse stayed firmly on bench this time.

You missed a bunch of time over the summer didn't you? It seems like your squats have come back pretty good.

Yeah, as of last week I am back in PR for reps territory for all lifts.
I forgot to add what routine I'm doing. I'll edit the OP.

Squats and OHP were very easy. Squats were ATG and OHP is on a reset so they were very easy indeed.
170kg was my previous 1RM a few months back, so it feels good to be doing it for sets now. I'm 86kg now, so it's almost double body weight for sets.
I decided to play around with shrugs a bit, never done them before. I couldn't do these weights with strict shrugs, so I heaved them up with a pretty short ROM. Too heavy tbh, but I just wanted to try them out.

Squats were annoyingly hard. 135kg felt piss easy on Friday, though I was in a different gym. I dunno if the weights are slightly different, but this gym has a shitty cheap bar and my other gym as an Eleiko. I'm back at the 'Eleiko' gym on Friday, so let's see if hopefully it feels better. I also only got about 5 and half hours sleep, so that sucks.
Not this Friday, but next Friday I will be squatting 140kg x 3, which is back in PR territory. Same with bench.
Bench felt good. I didn't use belt this time and I kept my arse firmly planted on the bench this time. Felt pretty good.
I was just dicking around with the other stuff today.
