5x5x115kg -- Every set was a grinder, but every set was also successful. Felt a lot like how I remember 5 rep sets being: get to third rep, reach a concentric speed that suggests you won't get any more reps, do 2 more reps anyway with the 5th rep being very slow around the sticking point then popping up past it. Despite each set being a grinder, it still didn't feel like that big of a deal, which I'd like the thank all my recent sets of 10 (and a very recent set of 12) for. The last time I did sets of 5 at 115kg, it was 3 sets back in 2011. When I went for 117.5kg the next training day, I knew I was only going to get the 1 set. So to get 5x5 at this weight is a volume PB, and being confident that I'll get 5x5 with more weight next week is something I'm quite pleased with.
3x5x77.5kg -- Between sets I was coaching rack pulls. Turns out they're a lot easier to coach than deadlifts for someone who struggles to keep their chest up and their lumbar spine neutral. I knew I had some good ideas floating around up top.
Bulgarian Split Squat
Glute Ham Raise
5x5xBlue -- Made a few adjustments. This felt much better for my hamstrings than what I've been experiencing thus far. I was tempted to just keep on going and going and going, but I considered that I would like to be able to walk again by the time I do front squats and deadlifts on Wednesday.
Calf Raise/Decline Sit Ups
