    For you metric types, that's "big wheels," isn't it. Congrats on getting it up for 5!

    Oh yeah, big wheels.
    Now I am just 10kg away from 2 x big wheels on each side for bench.

    Today's workout

    Really surprised to almost complete a PR on bench today, I wasn't expecting to come so close based on past attempts increasing by 5.5 lbs (2.5kg).

    Squats: 132 lbs (60kg), 5 reps
    Bench Press: 198 lbs (90kg), 5, 5, 4, 3 reps.

    Overhead Press: 132 lbs (60kg), 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, Afternoon, 5, 5 reps

    Sciatica is still giving me trouble but is slowly improving.

    Glad to hear it seems to be improving, and awesome job working through it. I can't imagine it's been easy.

    Oh yeah got a PR on bench today.
    Next bench day will be 203.5 lbs.
    Finally breaking the 200 lbs barrier for sets of 5.

    If all goes well, by the end of week 17, I should break the 100kg barrier.

    Just missed Over Head Press. I'll get it next week.
    Back hurts after performing squats. Increased weight 5 kg from last workout, but won't add anymore till my back properly heals.

    I think doing deadlifts and squats on the same day is too much for my back.
    The plan going forward will be 1 set of squats on Mondays, Dumbell lunges on Wednesdays, and Deadlift on Fridays.
    Just once a week on each exercise till my back is better.
    Hopefully this works or I'll have to just do upper body exercises.
