Thanks Peter. I think you're right and 3 sets makes more sense. You would not then cut back on the warm up sets? My original question was how to shorten this workout. Any suggestions?

I did hit 5 reps on the first work set (the first squat set was curtailed because I got an incredible cramp in my forearm, not because I couldn't deal with the weight) for the first two exercises. On the deadlift, I think my warmup sets were my work sets!

What I'd plan for the workset weights the next time I go would be:

Squat: 190#
Bench: 215# - this I could probably get based on other lifting I've been doing
Deadlift: 190#

Does this sound right?

Also, does anyone have a spreadsheet to track all this?
