    Lighter session tonight. And back still the same.

    Squats:

    105 x 5/5

    Light squat day.

    Bench press:

    87.5 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 7/7/7/2

    Meh, knew I never really had much in me for the last set. Might try doing weighted chins occasionally, even if it's just for a single or double, to see if it helps.

    Some mobility then home.

    Sorry. Meant cleans. Always get mixed up between the two.

    Decent session tonight, and back still the same.

    Squats:

    145 x 5/5/5

    Harder.

    Press:

    69 x 5/5/5

    Very hard, but an all time PR.

    Deadlifts:

    165 x 5

    Not too bad. Got told I am hyper-extending my low back at the lock-out, which is something I'll have to fix.

    Did some lacrosse ball work, then home.

    Thanks. Still a bit off my squat PR but happy to be into press PR territory. Hopefully I'll get 70 next time.

    Are you using microplates? Or how did you get to 69?

    My gym has micro-plates. I'm beginning to see that they're very useful.

    Squats are nearing PR territory no?

    Very strong pressing. Ahead of me now.

    Can imagine so. Maybe a worth while purchase for myself.
