    315lbs x3
    415lbs x3
    430lbs x3
    445lbs x3

    Bench press
    135lbs x8
    185lbs x3
    225lbs x3
    275lbs x2
    275lbs x4 (failed 5th rep)
    295lbs x1 (failed 2nd rep)
    315lbs x1

    Close Grip Bench Press
    225lbs x5x3

    Bodyweight Pull Ups
    10x2
    12x1

    EZ Bar Biceps Curls
    80lbs x10x3

    Finished up with triceps pull downs, machine pec flys, and machine shoulder press.

    All in all not too bad of a workout but my bench press still needs work. It's not on par with my squat or deadlift.

    Deadlift
    135lbs x 5
    225lbs x3
    315lbs x3
    425lbs x3
    475lbs x3
    525lbs x3

    Weighted Chin Up
    +25lbs x3
    +45lbs x3
    +90lbs x4(Failed 5th rep. Close, but no cigar.)
    +115lbs x1 (Bonus punishment rep for previous failed set, could probably have done another one.)

    Finished up with cable rows and leg extensions. All in all not too bad of a workout. The idea was to go to 550lbs on the deadlift for my last set but wasn't feeling it. Maybe next time.

    I was clearly burned out last night. Every rep I did felt heavy, no matter the weight. I wanted to do sets of 265lbs on the bench but it was way too heavy. It's time to back down on the weight and start the training cycle all over. I'm going to rest this weekend.

    It hasn't been a very productive week for me at the gym. At least I made it back today and even set a PR.

    Squats
    135lbs x10 (warm up)
    225lbs x3 (warm up)
    315lbs x3(3rd rep paused)

    Paused Squats (Full-stop 3-5 second pause)
    375lbs x3
    395lbs x3
    415lbs x1(PR)
    425lbs x1 (PR2)
    435lbs X1(PR3)

    500lbs+ should be no problem for me for a regular squat.

    Finished up with leg press, lat pull downs, leg extensions and machine rows.
