Volume day

45 x 5 reps
135 x 5 reps
175 x 5 reps
215 x 5 reps x 2 sets no good
210 x 5 reps x 3 sets

followed by humbling failure on all other lifts.

I completely switched over to Texas method today and misjudged the fatigue I'd feel from 5 sets across squats. Combined with the stress from moving and probably a slew of other bad things I've been doing everything went to hell quickly afterwards. I decided to bail before I dropped something on myself.
I've also been a little conflicted about what to do with pressing and benching. I've been trying to rotate the two week by week, but it hasn't been going well. I'm thinking I might be well served putting the presses back on a novice routine and seeing how far it'll take me. If not, maybe an 8 week rotation would work. Anybody have similar troubles?
