    Squat 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 2x8x225
    Bench 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 3x8x220
    RDL 5x45, 5x135, 3x225, 2x8x265
    Chins 5x5

    Everything went well. Bar speed was fast on squats and bench. RDL is the same weight as last time, but felt better. Chins are always hard this day, and continue to be hard, but these were all clean.

    Thursday 4/2/15

    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 2x1x215
    Bench 5x45, 3x135, 2x225, 2/2/2/2/2/1x285

    Press went pretty well. 215 is my old 1rm PR. The first one was SLOW. The second one went up nice and quick. Probably could have gotten a double. Bench was a little harder. Its amazing how much press interferes with bench.

    Friday 4/3/15

    Squat 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 2x225, 1x275, 2x1x325
    Deadlift 5x135, 3x225, 1x315, 2x345
    Chins 7/6/6/5/5

    A little dissapointed in my squat and DL today. For my squat, I didn't even try for a double. The first one felt very very hard. For my DL, I broke the 3rd off the floor but felt my back rounding, so I stopped. Probably should have done some back off sets or something.

    Monday 4/6/15

    Bench 2x5x45, 5x135, 3x185, 2x225, 1x275, 1x310 **New PR**
    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 5x5x185

    Well, I'll be. A new bench PR - finally!! My goal for the longest time has been a 315 bench, and I'm real close. 275 went up like it was 225. 310, though, went up like it was...well...310. It was a tough rep. But, I feel good about my chances at 315 next week! I believe this would be a new 5x5 pr on the press, too. Going to start microloading these, probably 187.5 next time. Finished with a couple of pull ups.

    Tuesday 4/7/15

    Squat 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 1x225, 2x4x275
    Deadlift 5x135, 3x225, 2x4x285
    Dips 5xBW, 10/10/7x45

    I think I might change squats on these medium days to 3x5 from 2x4. We'll see. Other than that, everything else went pretty well. Lower back is barking a touch, but nothing too terrible. Also very tired (didn't sleep well Sunday night at all).

    Thursday 4/9/15

    Squats 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 2x8x235
    Bench 5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 3x8x225
    Chins 7/7/6/5/5

    Skipped RDLs today. Also, squats were good, but bench felt very heavy for some reason. Last week's 220 felt MUCH easier.

    Friday 4/10/15

    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 1x220, 0x222.5 **New PR**
    Bench 5x45, 5x135, 3x225, 3x4x275

    New press PR!! The bad news is I weighed in at 222.5 this morning. After hitting my PR of 220, I went for bodyweight and missed. Oh well - next week! Bench felt a little better today. 275 still felt heavy, but wasn't concerned about missing any reps.

    Bench 2x5x45, 5x135, 3x185, 2x225, 1x275, 1x315 **New PR**
    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 5x5x187.5

    Yes! Finally hit 315 on the bench. Was a tough rep, but I'm pumped. Glad I decided to microload the press - the last set was a grinder.

    Thank you!! I hit 305 on 11/4/13 - and I've been working ever since to crack 315. Here's hoping the next 10 lbs doesn't take another year and a half!!
