    First problems with squat but managed to do 3x5. Press felt really heavy. Deadlift still relatively easy.

    Squat 87kg (191lb)
    Bench press: 55kg (121lb)
    Deadlift: 87kg (191lb)

    Squat was challenging, the first rep of the first set was not deep enough but after that I managed to do 5 reps and the other two sets. Bench was heavy but each set seemed to be easier. Deadlift felt really heavy for the first time.

    Squat: 89kg (195lb)
    Press: 39kg (85lb)
    Deadlift: 91kg (200lb)

    The worst session so far. I failed the last rep in the first set. I think my grip/shoulder position was not good enough. I took 2 extra minutes break and repeated the set. It was difficult but I managed to do 5 reps and then two other sets. I believe I need to use a bit wider grip and better control positions of elbows. Press was extremely heavy, I barely managed to do all the reps and sets, not satisfied with form either. Deadlift was not at the limit level yet but it was close.
