What a great gym sesion tonight.

Easily hit a new bench PR of 195lbs, going for at least 200lbs next time for sure.
My setup was probably the best I've had so far..
I used the "traps tuck" mentionned in a tnation video by CT, wow.. felt great.
Didn't want to go full out and break 200lbs, simply to have progression next session.

Squats went well too, almost bitched out after 3rd set, but two more sets went up easy.
I'm not using a wide stance, I'm able to go about an inch lower than parallel and boy, my quads and posterior chain all get recruited. Feels amazing. (was using 225lbs, 5x5, new PR eh)

Dips were easy, definitely going up to 50-55lbs extra weight (using 45lbs so far).

Inverted rows are awesome, feeling it much more than a bent over, so I'll stick with those for now. ROM is good, looking at another session with extra 25lbs and then moving to a 35lbs. (almost did 3x10 reps with the 25lbs (11-9-10)).

Three more sessions of SL5x5.. looking forward to DL now.. back is 100% recovered...
