165 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5

Nothing much to report here. Lifted on a squat rack that has fixed safety bars, which were right below proper depth for me, and managed to screw up half of the reps (not getting a proper bounce because I was afraid of hitting the bars).

Bench Press

135 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5

Decided to go ahead and alternate bench and press instead of pressing exclusively. Was playing with my grip on these, and definitely going to stick with a narrow grip. Feels much better on my shoulders. Also working on keeping my back tight, which in the time that I did not bench, I managed to figure out, at least in my head.


275 lbs. – 1×5 – 5

Big jump from last time, but I was easing into it since it was my first day back. These are still really easy, and noticeably easier from a conditioning standpoint. The main focus was making sure I was set up properly (different setup than I had been doing) and keeping my lower back set.
