Thanks a lot guys I'm a ways from catching you in anything Swede
I'm starting to fixate on hitting 3pps for bench, 4pps in squat and 5pps in deads by this time next year. Today was my first day as a thirtysomething and I just had to celebrate it with a PR

Deadlifts
80x5
110x3
140x1
160x1 -
Set up for 175 but said sod it, let's go for 4 plates!

180x1 - PR! Honestly feel there is more here. Knees to near lockout was the hardest and lockout was surprisingly comfortable. Held the bar for a good 6-7 seconds and could have done longer.

160x1
160x1 - The PR did take a lot out of me, these were harder than the 180!
Next week I'll do 162.5 for singles and then try for 400 pounds in 2 weeks.

Pendlay Rows
60x5
70x5x5 - Decent

Lat Pulldown
Pin 12: 8 reps - cheap PR
Pin 12: 6, 6

Dynamic Squats
75kg: 10 sets of 2 reps - Got better towards mid sets

Seated DB curls
20x7x2 - Another PR of some sort
20x6

Decline sit ups + 27.5kg dumbbell - TOUGH!
3 x 8 - A final PR

Note: My arms are fairly small in comparison to the rest of me. My upper arm is maybe 15-15.5 inches flexed and forearms around 12 inches at widest point. I don't mind that much and I certainly wouldn't let arm concerns get in the way of deadlifting, squatting and pressing but I assume I will look like someone who lifts when I reach the 3pps bench, 4pps squat, 5pps deads area?

Note 2: First time in months that I have gone 3 days in a row without getting sick. Happy days
