    [Warmups]
    45x5x2
    135x5
    225x3
    245x2
    [Worksets]

    THE Press (medium aka 90%):
    [Warmups]
    45x10
    95x3
    135x3
    155x1
    [Worksets]

    Curlz:
    95x14
    95x12
    105x10

    Even with short rests the curlz were too EZ. Next time i'll start at 125, as i am trying to be in the 'hard' 8 rep range with about 40 seconds of rest. Still got a bit of a pump so all good.

    W2D3 - Friday

    Squat:
    [Warmups]
    45x5x2
    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    355x1
    385x1
    [Worksets]
    415x5 (Ties previous PR for 5)

    Bench Press:
    [Warmups]
    45x10
    135x5
    205x2
    230x1
    260x1
    [Worksets]
    280x3 (This may or may not tie my previous pr for 3, but plenty left in the tank still)

    Deadlift
    [Warmups]
    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    385x1
    425x1
    [Worksets]
    460x1*

    Reason for that deadlift failure is that my darn landlords that are very happy to charge rent as soon as midnight strikes on every month, take forever to fix the elevator that my "dear" neighbors keep breaking. Having a pup that makes you go out 4-5 times a day means a lot of silly cardio and no way to get around it. Even coaches asked me why i looked tired when i showed up at the gym today, at first it was too early for me to realize it was bc of all that going up and down the stairs.

    Looks impressive to me. How much were you trying to lift for your workset. What is your age, height, and weight?
