    Bench:
    50kg 5x5

    Did dips before because the gym was busy and I didn't think I'd get a rack. But I did. They really took a lot of energy out of me ngl so 50kg felt heavy (was also fasting)

    Overhead press:
    30kg 3x8 (actually failed the very last rep cos I paused at the bottom and then it was gg)

    Haven't done these in ages, usually do Push press and then 1 strict set at the end. Shoulders are burnt

    Dips: 3x6, 1x4 BW

    Back Squat:
    60kg 3x8

    First set was super hard, last one was super easy

    Deadlift:
    100kg 6x2
    120kg x2

    Hard, probs due to fasting and high volume squats right before. Really need to get some straps

    C&J
    40kg 4x1
    50kg 4x1

    Surprisingly snappy

    Accessories: lat pulldown/bicep curls

    Back Squat:
    70kg x3
    80kg x3
    90kg x1
    90kg x1

    All felt heavy. As long as I can do 90-95% of my 1rm for a single and 80-85% for a triple throughout the cut I'll be happy. I've lost ~3.2kg (mostly water weight) so far, looking to get down to 72-73kg (from 79kg(!!))

    Clean pull:
    70kg 3x5
    90kg 2x2

    Used straps for the first time, made it easier to focus on staying over the bar during the pull

    Snatch pull:
    40kg 5x5 (3 from floor 2 from hang)

    Tis getting there

    Accessories: getting some great advice about PhDs and internships from a guy I was working in with. Networking and that init

    Forgot to mention (didn't realise at the time) that its the last session at uni gym for a long time. I will miss my dear Werksan barbells and plates

    Lool there's guys here (on the fitness blog forum) who bang 100kg+ for reps

    You should look into making a blog if you're serious about lifting, its not a bad place to get advice. Reddit is good too...gotta maximise them beginner gainz
