    Weight: 182.9

    PCs: Finished last PC workout with a very sore wrist, probably due to racking it wrong a couple times. Anyway, very first warmup rep today, and I had a sharp pain run through my wrist and forearm, so... no more PCs for a while

    DL: 295 x 5

    No issues

    Chins: 8, 8, 7

    1st set was almost 9, 2nd set was barely 8 Since I hit 8, 8, 7, next time will be +5# weighted!

    7/8/19

    Weight: 182.6

    OHP: 102 x 5, 3, 4

    Was aiming for 5x3, but ran out of steam. Also, had some wrist pain still from Saturday, not sure if that was a factor or not. Will repeat the weight next time.

    Dips (+15#): 8, 8, 7

    Will go to +20# next time

    7/9/19

    Weight: 183.5

    Squats (light day): 220 x 5 x 3

    No issues.

    Pull-ups (assisted, same as last time): 8, 7, 7

    Just missed 8, 8, 7, which will trigger less assistance. Next time, hopefully

    Weight: 181.8

    Bench: 162 x 5, 4, 4

    Couldn't get the last rep for 2nd and 3rd set, even first set was a grind on the last rep. Will repeat weight next time.

    LTEs:

    60 x 8 x 3

    Reset weight and upped reps to 8, per Rip's comment in the LTE thread (was doing 5 x 3 before).

    Weight: 184.6

    How I gained 3 pounds from yesterday, I have no idea. However, I weighed in twice, got the same number, so, there it is. Mystery of the day

    DL: 300 x 5

    No issues

    chins (+5#): 7, 6, 5

    First time weighted, plus the three extra pounds I gained, plus the dip belt itself probably weighs 2 pounds. So, all in all, happy that I made at least 5 reps on all sets

    Weight: 183.8

    OHP: 102 x 5 x 3

    5x3 PR, and succeeded where I failed last time

    Dips (+20#): 7, 7, 6

    First time at +20, and still felt pretty good.

    7/15/19

    Weight: 183.6

    Squats: 250 x 4

    Was supposed to be 4 x 4, but had a very strange "tweaky" feeling in my lower back when I walked out the 2nd set. It's way too busy of a week to chance an injury, so I bagged the rest of the squats.
    It's too bad, too, because this was the first time I did 4 reps with 250 (last time I did 3x5), and the first set felt pretty good, actually better that when I did 3 reps last time.

    Pullups (assisted): 8, 8, 7

    Will decrease the assistance next time. Only two levels of decreased assistance are possible, so maybe 10-15 workouts away from doing unassisted pullups

    Weight: 182.8

    Bench: 162 x 4, 5, 4, 4

    Was supposed to be 162 x 5 x 3, but like last time, 5 reps is rarely there. So, did a fourth set, and will aim for 164 x 4 x 4 next time. Today was a 4x4 PR for this lift.

    LTEs: 61 x 8 x 3

    No issues. And glad I've moved to higher reps and lower weight, I feel like I'm getting more benefit from it.

    OHP: 103 x 4, 4, 3, 3

    Was aiming got 5 x 3, didn't even come close. Would have been happy with 4 x 4, didn't get there, either
    Hectic day, definitely didn't eat enough... chalk it up to better luck next time, and will repeat the weight.

    Dips (+20#): 7, 7, 6

    Same as last time. Given the above, I'll take it
