Press: 45#x5, 75x5, 95x3, 115x2, 135x5,5,3
Have to stay here. Was a battle to get rep 5 on the second workset

BS: 45x5, 95x5, 135x3, 195x3, 205x2, 215,5,4,5
Was wobbly on all my sets here. Will repeat as Monday's workset. Form felt like an issue as well, although I don't feel any residual knee irritation.

PC: 45x5, 75x5, 115x3, 135x2, 155x2,5,5
Way insufficient intensity on the first workset, hence the 2 reps. 135 felt easy and I allowed myself to think 150 would feel comparatively easy. Not so much. OK to go to 155 next time

Chins: 5,4

As I've been progressing in SS with increasingly heavy weights, this is starting to feel like a lot of volume for the intensity I put in. I'm going to get the 12 weeks at least, or work this program until I stop making progress, but I'm thinking something like 5/3/1 might fit a better model for volume on each workout day. We'll see.
