Default Sunday, 2/3

Squat = 12,785 lbs.

a) 5 x 6 x 205
b) 5 x 6 x 185
c) 7 x 155

I had wanted to do 10 sets of 6 with 225, but after my warmup sets, I knew that that wasn't going to happen. I used short rest pauses, ~1 min. That 7 x 155 was grueling; I was aiming for 10, but I was spent. I only attempted it because I'm in this habit of doing back-off sets, and even though I was tired, it felt weird ending on the last set of 6 x 185.

Flat Bench = 12,260 lbs.

a) 2 x 6 x 175
b) 2 x 8 x 135
c) 2 x 10 x 115
d) 6 x 10 x 95

I had wanted to do 10 sets of 6 with 175. Unlike squats, my warm up sets were solid. I went up to 215 for a single and felt like I could've done 3 reps pretty easily. But for some reason, I just didn't have it in me toward the back half of all these sets. My strength just drained so quickly, it was amazing. I banged out 6 x 10 x 135 about 2 weeks ago. I think the problem for me is taking too many days off; I felt stronger last Thursday. Also, I went out drinking all night Friday and then just sat around on Saturday (drank plenty of water and ate good). I still wanted to get in lots of volume, so I said screw it and threw on 95 lbs. for what was pretty much a second workout.

edit: wanted to take a break from measuring stuff for a few days, so I didn't do FitDay today.
