185x5 squat. Shirt makes me look fat lol

135x10 deadlift

225x2-Gotta get my chest up. I rocked a little bit as I started. 2nd rep seemed better

260x4 I was beat doing this one. Form suffered quite a bit and it's obvious to see I'm kind of maxed. Even had one of my favorite "pump up" songs on. I just couldn't do it.

My back felt a little tight again today but when I started working out it felt a lot better. Go figure.

Barbell Squat:
45 lb x 20 reps
95 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 3 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
Hard but doable. Should be a few more sessions before I really struggle.

Barbell Bench Press:
45 lb x 25 reps
85 lb x 15 reps
115 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
Still pretty easy

Barbell Deadlift:
135 lb x 10 reps
185 lb x 5 reps
225 lb x 2 reps
260 lb x 4 reps
First stall of the program. 15lbs each workout is too much at this point. I'll be deloading back to 225x5 next week and adding 5-10lbs per workout based on how I feel.
Those DL reps at 260 were way too fast to not even for for the 5th rep. Taking a big breath and holding it before your reps will help you keep a lot tighter. Also, you are almost stiff leg deadlifting the heavier weights. I have that same problem when they get heavy. Try to keep it closer to your body and get a little more knee bend into the movement and push through the ground.

Squats look good though even though you look fat!
