Kept the same weight as Sunday and felt much better. The squats are the only exercise that actually caused a bit of fatigue but my technique was spot on at least. Between reps 9-12 on all exercises is when things get sticky but I'm learning to concentrate better and my form is much better on squats now, even when tired which is positive. Focusing on each individual rep is something new for me but it will undoubtedly yield dividends. Before, there would be sets and reps that were half-assed, not anymore.

I also used a slightly narrower grip for bench and didn't tuck the elbows as much as before.

SLDL 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Squats 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Bench 42.5kg - 3 x 12
Rows 32.5kg - 3 x 12
OHP 22.5kg - 3 x 12
Chins B/W - 5, 5, 5 = 15 reps

I also do some push ups, sit ups and bodyweight squats on days off. I hit a set of all 3 together and do 5 sets of each. Nothing major, just something to get me moving since I work at a computer all day! I also walk for 30+ minutes too and use the ab wheel at home. I tend to do this mini session just to take a break from work and I feel great afterwards.
