    Squat: 210 5/5/5
    Bench: 180 5/5/4
    Pull ups curved bar, bw: 7/7/5
    166.8

    Squat felt pretty good. Bench too; I had a spotter, but 4th rep on last set was real tough, so I opted not to try for a 5th. Need to wait on weighted pull ups until I get the belt. Too scared now to use the old system!

      Press: 107.5?: 5/5/5
      Deadlift: 225 5

      Used weighted collars on the press. Still not quite sure how much they weigh. Press was a real grind, but I'm happy with that number. I'll feel especially good when I can get it up to 115 with the 35's. It will be a slow haul. Deadlift felt pretty good. Happy to get to 2 plates again! It's been a few years since I've deadlifted this kind of weight.

        squat: 215 5/5/5
        pull ups curved bar: 10lbs: 5/5/5

        Squat was more of a grind this time, but manageable. I felt pretty pumped up going into the workout. Used the new dip belt for the first time on pull ups. Nice belt. Easy to use and was cheap.

          Squat: 220 5/5/5
          Bench: 180 4; 145 5/5
          Pull ups curved bar bw: 9
          166.8

          I went in intending to do light squats, but felt good warming up, so went for 220. It was tough. Squat took so much out of me, I ended up doing a 'light bench' and one quick set of pull ups before leaving.

              Squat: 225 5/5/5
              Press: 108?: 5/4/3

              Tied a PR on squat from approximately 5 years ago. Heyo!! Felt pretty good. Can go up from here.
              Had both weighted collars on for the press. Was pretty gassed and didn't wait long between sets because the gym was closing.

                Deadlift: 230 5
                Bench: 180 5/5/3

                Deadlift felt quite solid. Almost could have done more. I didn't have a spotter on bench. Squeezed out that second set barely. Was tired by the third set and didn't want to risk failing. I wish I could remember my old deadlift PR. I don't think I'm quite there yet. Might have been around 250.

                  Holy shit, I need to eat more! Press was a grind on first and last set.

                    Light bench: 140 5/5/5
                    pull ups curved bar 15lbs: 5; bw: 6
                    166.3

                    PR on the squat. Felt quite heavy. First set felt good. Second set, I felt like I was running out of gas. Same with third set. Felt pretty good going into workout.

                        Indeed! Just have to keep getting to the gym. And eating lots.

                      Deadlift: 235 5
                      Light squat: 180 5/5/5
                      Light press: 80 5/5/5
                      165.5
                      I was trying to eat as much protein as I could the last couple of days and ate more in general. I think my weight was down a bit today because I didn't eat much today.

                        Just FYI when you do light squats, usually folks just do 2 sets. You're not really trying to get work volume in; you just want to work out soreness in your legs.

                          Also, 'light press' isn't really a thing. The upper body lifts don't cause enough systemic stress to need that. Probably what you need to drive those lifts up is MORE volume, not less.

                            When you say 'more volume', what exactly do you mean? I just keep getting stuck at the same weight, and not sure what to do.

                          Bench: 180 5/3; 175 5
                          pull ups curved bar: 15lbs: 5/5; 12.5lbs: 5
                          167.7

                          PR on squat!!
                          Squat was tough, but manageable. Felt better than 230 did, maybe? Stuck on the bench at 180. When I took 5lbs off for the third set, it felt soooo much lighter. I had no spotter for first two sets, but had one for the third.
