    5/3/1 - Deadlift Day

    Deadlifts

    145lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    185lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    215lbs - 1x3 (w/u)

    270lbs - 1x5
    310lbs - 1x3 <-- 3-Rep PR!
    345lbs - 1x7 <-- 6-Rep PR!

    Boring But Big - Deadlift
    185lbs - 5x10

    Good Mornings
    115lbs - 3x10

    BB Row
    135lbs - 1x10
    185lbs - 1x7 <-- 7-Rep PR!
    200lbs - 1x5 <-- 5-Rep PR!
    135lbs - 1x10

    I'm at the point where I'm not only hitting rep PRs but also moving weights I've never even touched before (or at least have documented proof that I've moved before). I seem to remember DL'ing 405lbs once in my past life but can't find documentation anywhere so I'm calling 345lbs the most I've ever DL'd

    5/3/1 - Squat Day

    Squats

    135lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    150lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    180lbs - 1x3 (w/u)

    230lbs - 1x5
    260lbs - 1x3 <-- 3 Rep PR
    290lbs - 1x7 <-- 7 Rep PR

    Boring But Big - Squats
    150lbs - 5x10

    Leg Curls
    130lbs - 3x12

    Leg Presses
    690lbs - 3x12

    First time with 290lbs on my back and it felt pretty light! Cranked out seven quality reps and felt great! I think the leg presses assistance work has really helped me out with increasing my squat numbers. It just helps me learned how to handle bigger weights and I just feel beast mode when I'm doing them. Great workout today!

    5/3/1 - OHP Day

    OHP

    55lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    70lbs - 1x5 (w/u)
    80lbs - 1x3 (w/u)

    100lbs - 1x5
    115lbs - 1x3
    135lbs - 1x5

    Boring But Big - OHP
    70lbs - 5x10

    Dips
    BW - 3x10

    Failed on rep six at 135lbs. Probably should have just gotten into the sixth rep ASAP (I think the rest killed me) but I'm happy with where I'm at. Moving back in the right direction and I'm back to the full "wagon wheel" experience!

    Holy shit does it feel good to be back at it today! The DL felt great and I will most definitely be sore tomorrow. The 315 for 10 was amazing. I have never hit that kind of weight for that kind of reps. Definitely getting stronger and feeling great doing it!

    135lbs - 1x5 (w/u)

    DB Bench Press SS Alternating DB Rows
    70lbs - 3x10 SS 70lbs - 3x10

    215lbs @ 10 reps felt kind of light...until about the 7th or 8th rep. I just ran out of steam but got it done. 70lbs DB's are heavy but I think today was just an off day. I'm also about 2-days into a pretty much no-carb diet so I'm sure that had something to do with my energy and performance.
