Thanks Eric.  The bench presses were really feeling good yesterday.  The 225x5 was a little easier than I expected so I was tempted to go higher, but I just decided to move on to the next exercise.  Since I had a 12 day stretch without doing legs before yesterday, I have DOMS today (yes, DOMS from my massive 175 lb squats), but I'm still gonna try doing deads tonight if I can find a spot to do them.  If not, I'll make it a cardio day.

Since I haven't had a decent leg workout in weeks I fully expect to have some serious DOMS come the week after June 11.

10lbs is 10lbs. It's all good. I added a couple ATG light sets to Wednesday's squat session.  :-[ My legs do not like me right now.

Sunday June 5 - Workout B

Deadlifts:
135 lb x 5
205 lb x 5
225 lb x 5
245 lb x 2
255 lb x 2
275 lb x 1
295 lb x 1
305 lb x 1
325 lb x 1
335 lb x 1

Military OHP:
bar x 10
115 lb x 5
120 lb x 5
125 lb x 3 - failed attempt at 5
115 lb x 5
115 lb x 5

The workout felt good, although only 45 minutes.

It was good to get the deadlifts back up to my higher range.  I'm not used to doing a bunch of singles, but doing my usual sets of 5 seems to wear me out too much to go over 315.  I'll keep working on it.

Decided to start the OHP sets with 35 lb plates instead of 25's this time, and I was happy with those sets.  Then I cut the workout short and went to the pool for some sun.

PRs:
OHP 140 - 8/27/15
BP 245 - 4/7/17
DL 345 - 8/26/15
Squat - ugh
Leg Press 670x2 - 12/10/15

Glad to see the deads are going well. Any specific goal for them?

Wish we had a pool at my gym. I'd go back after work and watch the ladies, err I mean get a tan. ;)

No time-bound goal, just general thoughts in my head about where I want to be:  I want to be able to do sets of 5 in the 325 to 345 range, and a 1RM of 375.

It's nice to have the outdoor pools that the gym, but the people-watching was not up to par yesterday.  I just put my earbuds in and chilled for about an hour.

When doing 531, my goal was to pull a 400lb DL. I got 375x1 before I hurt my back. Even when I was doing 375 I don't think I ever pulled 345 for sets of 5. If you could manage that you should already be over 375 1RM. Best of luck.

As for the people watching, sometimes it's a good time just watching the stupid things people do. lol

At least you were able to get in and get things done. That's 100% better than everyone who stayed home on the couch. ;)

275 lb x 2
325 lb x 2
335 lb x 1

Then I gave up my spot in the rack to a guy who was waiting for it, and finished with a few light sets on a shoulder press machine.
Then I went to the pool.

I wish I had videoed my 345 deadlift.  The first time I did it last year my legs were shaky but it went up pretty quickly.  This time my legs were solid but it went up very slowly.  I knew I had it from the get-go, it just went slow.  I held it at the top for half a second, and then involuntarily dropped the bar.  I've always lowered the bar before.  It was kinda embarrassing because it was very loud and no one does that at this gym.  People turned to see what idiot was dropping weights, and I know it sounds like bomb in the locker room below when someone does that.  But I was happy to get it done, and at a lower body weight than the last time I did it.
