Haven't updated in a while so here it goes:

Friday 1/24:

Deadlifts 265lbs 1x5
OHP 100lbs 5x5
Bent Over Row 140lbs 5x5
I don't remember what else I did, those are the compounds though. Sorry :/

Monday:
Squats 215lbs 3x5 (I did a reset as the protocol I'm on recommends since my squat hasn't moved in a few workouts)
Bench Press: 120lbs 3x5 135lbs 2x5 (again, a small reset due to not progressing)
Bent over row 145lbs 5x5
Single Arm Row 70lbs 3x8
Shrugs 135lbs 3x8
Tricep Pushdowns 130lbs 3x8
Decline Curls (the curl machine) 65lbs x8 80lbs x8 95lbs x8
Ab work!

Notes:
Haven't updated due to being in and out of the hospital because of a stage 4 cancer relative. It's been a hell of a week, but everything is fine as of now. My nutrition is fairly on point, as is my workout frequency. My weights is down to 192.6lbs.

Edit 1: The reason I did a reset is less about the protocol recommendation and more because I know it works for me. Back in December I stalled out at 185lbs on squats, reset, and made it all the way to 240lbs. I've been stuck for a 3 workouts at that weight so I am doing a reset and going to progress back up. To anyone who thinks I should just keep working at the same weight until I can progress, I understand your concern and do appreciate it, but I know it worked before. Also, I'm cutting for another month so maybe dropping the weight and going back up will help some.
