    Deadlift
    135x5x2 - going for getting warmer, which has been lacking with just 11 reps
    210x3
    260x2
    300x1 belt - forgot hook, which was just the beginning of the mental problems
    300x5 belt, hook, because I am an idiot who forgot to load the bar and also did an entire set of 5 without realizing I had not loaded the bar
    330x5 belt, hook
    Ahem, skipped the back off because, well, you know.

    Working on figuring out medium squat day, as I am mightily wasted after deadlift. However, today was the first day I actually felt my lumbar erectors doing their job. I've been able to hold position correctly as evidenced by prior video, but today I suddenly had the sensation of it happening. Very interesting.

    You have invented new programming:

    a) front-ons
    b) front-end loaders
    c) pre-loads
    d) idiot sets (your own words)

    Safe to say you were "warm."

    Yes, quite warm. I actually thought I would only do 3 of the actual work set, but the first 3 didn't kill me so I kept going.

    I need better warmup for this. The first set blew chunks for hardness & effort involved, but the rest were no problem.

    Yeah, that was enough. My times were faster this time though.

    Sometimes I wish there was some effective way to get a little warm first so those first couple empty bar sets don't feel so horrible.

    Things that suck: when the neighbor starts grilling meats just as I get to my last squat warmup. Hunger pangs are not very compatible with work sets.

    Left adductor tendon still hurts like a bitch at random times but has not been a problem when squatting. Same goes for left knee.

    285x1x3 belt - easy, no problem, no problem were the notes of the day, tempting a +5 next time

    Short on time to finish.
