Default more weight=more muscle BTB's routine let's crush it

Here's the routine:

Monday

Arnold Dumbbell Press or Seated DB Press - 3 x 20 goal reps
Close Grip Bench Press - 3 x 20 goal reps

Tuesday

Still Leg Deadlift - 2 x 20 goal reps (or Glute Ham Raise - 3 x 8-10 reps)

It has been the first sucessful completion of the entire workout but I can only recollect yesterday.

Felt pretty good yesterday, and hit 90 lb for two sets of 7 on incline press. What's strange is I can only do 155 on bb for 8 reps. Any help to this topic will be appreciated. Afterwards, pull-ups weren't the greatest at 20 lb strapped on my belt for 6 reps 3 sets but still not the worst. Afterwards, moved into deadlift. Hit 265 for 5 reps 3 sets and they weren't that hard either. If I could build more speed, I could've gotten more reps. Really need to work on the fatigue though. My hands fatigue faster than my back, and I refuse to use straps until I can do 315 for a solid 15 reps.

Afterwards, moved to shoulder press, which I hit each set for 8 reps. On the third set, I heard a pop and felt my shoulder pop out then back in, a potential injury. Slept a long 11 hours in hopes of making it heal. Was hesitant to go on dips, but hit 225 for 5 reps, then 2 sets at 205 for 7 reps. Still no PR on there either.

So today, only PR is incline bench press, which seems to be jumping up in weight at alarming speeds. I would consider deadlift too, because although I was fatigued, the reps came up easily and I had no effort keeping my back straight.

I put deadlifts on the upper body today because I really didn't feel like doing them on thurs, lower body day. I ended up skipping friday and having to work out on saturday because of a long family outing which left me very tired after I came out late. I was itching to do forearm curls but per BTB's advice, I stuck to the workout as is.

Keep dead lifting with no straps. That'll build your forearms better than any isolation movement will.

I will. Although I will say I couldn't have developed my forearms to where they are now without forearm curls, reverse curls, and reverse forearm curls. But referring back to a previous post from someone, "You don't see decent growth until your weights INCREASE after 1.5 bw bench press, 1.5 bw squat, and 2x bw deadlift.

Week 2 day 1

Squats were a little bit harder, but not as hard as I anticipated, meaning after learning correct form from anthony ditillo's article that BTB posted: no wide stance, no butt out, and using quads to ascend, not your butt, I thought I was going to have to use lighter weight to make it work. But turns out I used the same weight that I did last week. Now I only hope to increase my weights and day 3 means I have to squat 20 reps for 245, or at least 16.

Stiff-legged deadlift was pretty solid today in a long time at 2 sets for 9 reps each(damn I tried to get 10, but wasn't happening today) for 205. For the first time, no need for assistance from my arms to launch back up, just legs and back.

Calves. Oh I hate these things. They never grow, at least to my satisfaction, you know some definition or just one vein in the back. Nada, nothing so far. And my weight sucks too. 135 on the standing calve raise is all I can muster for 8 reps.

Dumbbell Curls. Damn, felt pretty strong today on this. 30 lb in each arm, for 8 reps, 3 sets.
