    Mon 6/15 Deadlift 350 - regular bar with straps, no chalk
    Tue 6/16 Bench 210 - 4,4,4,3 = 15 reps total
    Wed 6/17 Squat 330
    Thu 6/18 Press 156
    Fri 6/19 Deadlift 345x1, 375x1 405x0 fail
    Sat 6/20 Bench 210x1, 225x1, 235x1 PR

    A good week overall. Was disappointed with my deadlift on Friday - 375 was really tough, and 405 got maybe 1/2 inch off the ground. However, the 235 bench PR on Saturday was nice. Andy Baker mentioned in a recent video that you need to stick with a program for at least 12 weeks to see if it works for you, so I plan on staying with one lift per day for at least that long.

    Default June week 5/July week 1

    starting strength coach development program
    Mon 6/29 Deadlift 360x5 with straps
    Tue 6/30 Bench 220x3x3, 220x2x3
    Wed 7/1 Squat 340x5x3
    Thu 7/2 Press 165x3x3, 165x2x2, 165x1x2

    Sat 7/4 - My own personal "competition"
    Squat 345x1,375x1,395x1
    Bench 225x1, 240x1
    Deadlift 365x1, 385x0, 385x0

    Decided to see if I was in the "1,000 lb. club" for squat+bench+deadlift, and I am, barely.

    As I review my training log, it looks like I skipped an increment on the press, going from 156x5x3 on June 18th to 162x5,4,3,3 on June 23th, instead of going from 156 to 159. I'll just keep going up by 3s from here, as long as I can do 15 total reps.
