Default My Road to a Lean(er) Mean(er) Aurik

So I'm about a year into my lifting journey. I've done Power/Muscle/Burn (loved it, but a bit too much volume), I did 5/3/1 (Loved it, still doing it. Sorta), and I tried Westside (great on the lower body, kills the upper body though). Sooo... I'm going to be trying a 5/3/1 and Westside Hybrid. I'm currently 3 weeks into a 5 week shoulder rehab (I injured it while doing a 1RM bench press), so I've got another 2 weeks of this, followed by a deload, and then back onto 5/3/1 for the upper body.

Yesterday was my ME Squat/Deadlift day, and it was pretty straightforward:

A few mins of cardio on the bike to warm up
Some leg swings to open up the hips
Squats (Warmup): 45/5 45/5 95/5 135/5 185/5 225/2 225/1 275/1 315/1
Bench Squats: 365/2 365/4 (Rep PR)
Stiff-legged Deadlifts: 275/5 285/5 (no straps) 315/5 (with straps)
Standing Ab Crunches: 105/10 105/10 105/10

After which I was drenched in sweat and absolutely *starving*. I was going to try for 5 reps at 365, but ended up getting out of my groove after 2 reps on the first set, and then the 2nd set I wasn't quite sure if I'd be able to get the 5th rep so I chickened out. But it's still one rep more than the last time I repped at 365, so that's good.

Next week I'll be doing some halting deadlifts, barbell shrugs, rack pulls, and quad and hamstring destruction. I can't wait
