    Back to the gym today after several run days.

    Workout A

    Squats, 5x5@125 lbs. I repeated here again, I think they are finally starting to feel easier, so I might try 130 lbs next time.

    Bench, 5x5@65 lbs. These felt pretty good, I think I'll go for 70 lbs next time.

    Rows, 5x5@70 lbs. Had a tough time with these today, I may repeat here next time.

    Extra stuff:
    RDLs, 3x10@70 lbs. I also did 45 minutes on the treadmill.

    Took a rest day yesterday and didn't get up early to lift today. I'll work it in tonight, though :)

    Did bench and squat today so that I can hit the SISM challenge tomorrow morning.
    115 lbs x 5, 135 lbs x 5, 155 lbs x 2 :/ did some form tweaks and realize I need to deload more
    65 lbs x 5, 75 lbs x 5, 85 lbs x 5
    Then 65 lbs 3x8 EMOTM
    And to round out the workout I did power cleans with the same weights as bench. It was fun do try cleans out with more weight. Previously I have just been doing weight appropriate to hit 3x8 or 12/9/6

    5k tempo for todays lunch run. Hope it goes ok, it always seems so daunting but turns out to be great.

    Was going to lift yesterday but I did a 180 at the gym's entry after work because it was so crowded. Could not deal. Ended up running errands instead. So went today at lunch and it was empty, thank goodness.

    Squat 120 5x5 repeat. One more session at this weight.

    Press 55 5x5. I worked on my hip bounce and thing I did pretty well. I took a video too.

    Dead 155 1x5 regular, 1x5 sumo. I kind of like sumo better. Still going to do both until I have a clear preference. Both had mixed grip since the bar I used was a beater and the knurling was pretty worn. I did one extra rep double overhand but was slipping even with chalk.

    Single stiff leg dead 50 3x8 each side

    Stiff leg dead 70 3x8

    Split squat 55 3x8

    Asst. pull up -45 3x5
