Press: 45#x5, 75x5, 95x3, 120x2, 140x4,4,3
I actually wish there were 1.25# weights at my gym, but there aren't. Seriously considering getting some, as I think they are better for linear improvements and sustained progress.
Squat: 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 205x2, 220x5,5,6
DB Rows (R/L): 55x5, 75x5, 95x3, 110x2, 120x8,8, 130x4
Used knee wraps while squatting. Felt much better during the squat but still have persistent knee pain following, which has been a recurring theme. Ice a few times each day. Pain below both knees, specifically with both collateral ligaments, I suspect. Easing off squatting and icing daily until they feel significantly better on a workout day, but I think the SS volume of squatting might be a bit much for me.

Double PR day today. Still showing linear gains; will stick w/ SS until things start to taper off. Original plan was 12 weeks. I hope that lasts.
