Thanks I will not stop till I get my goals.

Today's workout was mentally more difficult.

squat 5x5 @280
Deadlift** 225x1 315x1 365x1
single leg hamstring curls 3x15 @50
hyper-extension 60 total reps 3x20

**(switched from sumo to conventional and wanted to test strength and speed because my form was actually pretty good and smooth. Not maxing at all i had atleast another 20 and maybe even 30. There are plenty of workout coming before I do a max with the new form.)

Best squat day so far on 5x5 moved the bar down. I guess I am low bar squatting now. My body feels more controlled and I feel stronger. No deadlifts today because my back felt unusably tired because of the low bar.

Lower Day (kind of):
squat 5x5@285
Db rows 1x5@70 1x5@80 1x5@105 1x5@110 (heaviest dumbbell which was one of my many small goals.)
Hamstring curls 3x8@110
hypertension 75 total reps 3x25
hanging leg raises 3x12

Upper day:
bench 5x5@175
OHP 1x10@95 1x10@105 1x6@115
Chin ups 2 sets to failure 22 reps and 14 reps
PLYO push ups onto a 8 inch box and then back down 3x5.
