    Deadlift 395x5, 320x5x2
    Squat 205x5x3

    Tried doing my top set without the belt. Worked nicely. I think even the 3 incher belt is messing with my deadlift start. Wasn't too bad, I think I might be able to do 405x5 in two weeks.

    Weigh-In: 291.2 pounds

    Bench 235x5, 212.5x5x4
    Press 107.5x5x3
    Pulldowns 220x5x5

    Top set bench got hung up a little bit. Pulldowns also got pretty hard, but still maintaining the short 90 second set rests. Learned today I'm up for a full time position at my new job, which will entail a "fitness test" to land. Grip strength test, flexibility test, pushups, and measuring heart rate after doing some step-ups. The first two I am very confident I can pass. Not so sure about the last two. I'm progressing pretty slowly anyway with my weight not really going up. I am probably going to change up my program significantly along with cutting my bodyweight down starting next week. So the big milestone to hit at the end of this week is going to be a 405x5 deadlift.

    Squat 290x5, 260x5x3
    Power Clean 142.5x3x3

    Tried doing one less back-off today. I'm feeling like maybe the full five sets on the heavy day is a bit too much for my squat. Squats definitely needed less stress moving out of novice, not more. Besides, it's my birthday today.

    Sorry to disappoint, but I'm gonna be suspending this program for now and going on a weight cut to help pass a potential fitness exam at my job. Gonna be picking it up again after the cut and hopefully in a much more anabolic state.

    Deadlift 405x5
    Squat 210x5x3

    Skipped ahead to get my new 5 rep deadlift PR today. Ground that last rep out hard but got it up. Last workout on this program, going to start up another cutting log next week.
