I didn't do my plan this day. I went to the gym with my friend and forgot my workout sheet at my house. I just messed around this day doing very little.

Full Body 5X5
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Core:


Front Squat: 100 for 5 reps: 115 for 5 reps: 130 for 5 reps: 145 for 5 reps: 160 for 5 reps. (PR for this exercise by 15 pounds!!!!!!)


Military Press: 90 for 5 reps: 100 for 5 reps: 110 for 5 reps: 100 for 5 reps: 90 for 5 reps.
(I'm not pleased with this. I kinda of burnt my Delts out with the front squats.... I know that sounds weird but the weight on my shoulders causes me to flex them and I'm working more towards squats anymore any way).

Deadlifts: 135 for 5 reps: 165 for 5 reps: 185 for 5 reps: 205 for 5 reps: 215 for 5 reps.......... I sed F*** it I'm doing an other set: 230 for 5 reps!!!!!
(I was really pumped with these tonight and broke my PR again. After that I was even more pumped and decided to try and brake my 1RM after doing all that..... Probably wasn't a good idea. I put on 285 [That's every weight I have] on the bar and just barely missed it. I had it at least three quarters of the way up. Then tried again about 5 min later and pretty much the same thing [Maybe 5/8 the way up] wont be doing that any more. It just doesn't feel smart).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Accessory:


Push Ups: 2 sets of 8 reps with 50 pounds on my back.

BB Curls: 2 sets of 8 reps with 65.

Triceps Press: I'm not sure how to do these yet, so I didn't do them. I'll start them Friday.
_____________________________________________________________

I was really happy with my work tonight, with the exception of the Military Press' and Triceps Press' but for both of them, I have a very good reason for not/badly doing them.

Today is a rest day

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I am not supposed to do any exercise today, but I was really bored and kinda bummed that I didn't get my 1RM for Deadlifts the other night, so I decided that I would do a VERY easy warm up (135X5) and go straight into my 1RM. I did the warm up and put 290 on the bar and got it with relative ease, but after watching the video, my form was terrible. I'll post the vid in PB thread in a little bit.

Let me know what you guys think about my form.... I should have bent my knees more?.....

I felt great tonight. Way better then my last session.

I just wanted to make sure I worked my Tri's tonight, so I did what I could do comfortably.

I think my progression is starting to slow a bit on this plan though.

Wow.... Do I have a lot to say about this session....
This session was good. I had a lot of fun tonight. I did very well and broke some more PR's. I couldn't be more happy with this site, the people on it, and this plan. Everybody is extremely helpful and Knowledgeable.
I owe my gratitude and my progress to everybody that's helped me on here.


Squats:
I did the first two sets out of my comfort zone and moved away from the safety of my bench and did them deep. After doing that I still felt like I could brake a 5 rep PR and did... with ease. I could have went 195 and push 5 out. I'll do that next week. I didn't want to make the mistake of putting on too much weight too fast again.


Flat Bench Press:
I have been trying to work my way up to 180X5 sense I started and finally got it tonight. I will up it to 185 until I get it 5 times now.


Bent-Over Rows:
I wanted desperately to up my weight on this tonight, and I did OK, but it really wasn't pretty. I need to stick with 155 for a bit longer. I'm not 100% sure if I got 5 there or not, I was so focused on pulling it up that I kinda forgot to count. (it may have been 3 even...)


Sit-Ups:
I usually don't post PR's for "Accessory exercises" but I was actually pretty pumped with this. I think Squats actually help a lot with doing this as well.

Still not that great. My elbows feel like they are going to snap, when I do these.
