Default 6foot's summer Madcow 5x5 log

Hi guys,
I'm Greg, just joined yesterday and upon introducing myself i was advised to start a training log so here it goes. I'm 20 about 215 pounds and am 6'3" tall. I play rugby at school but now i'm home for the break. Started madcow 5x5 program last week but was humbled pretty quickly with the amount of squatting i will be doing during the coming weeks. Made some adjustments for this week and actually took the time to find the 10% to 15% increases in my weights.

I'm trying to get stronger this summer and put on some size while doing it. As far as my diet goes i'll quote an article i saw on muscle and strength and just "eat lots of dead animals". I'm not exactly sure where my maxes are right now but they are definitely not the same as they were at the beginning of the season around march. I'd like to get back to those points and beyond this summer. So here it goes

Squats
149x5
175x5
197x5
221x5
254x5

Bench
112x5
131x5
153x5
175x5
197x5

Rows
85x5
107x5
125x5
147x5
169x5

Assistance Work:
Seated good mornings(Dont have a place to do extensions and was told this was a suitable replacement)
74x8
74x8

Weighted sit ups
22x16
22x16
22x16
22x16

Overall thought it was a goodworkout. tried to keep form as strict as possible on everything. Looking forward to making progress and upping the numbers!

and the weights are all goofy numbers cause my dad has 45 pound plates and then all the smaller plates are all metric. Also found out that the bar we have is only 30 pounds not 45 although it looks like an olympic bar
