Would 420 have been a PR?

Yea, I haven't really gone over 400 since the meet but i'll be switching around the 5/3/1 weeks to get more singles in so I'll attempt 420 again in a few weeks.

5/31

Bench: 45 x 8, 100 x 5, 125 x 3, 145 x 5, 165 x 3, 185 x 5, 135 x 10, 10
DB Bench: 65 x 10, 10, 10
T-Bar: 110 x 10, 130 x 10, 150 x 10, 180 x 5, 145 x 8, 135 x 12
Facepulls: 3 x 20

I'm surprised you squatted at all after attempting 420 a couple days ago. Way to nut up.

Taking a week off from training except some soft tissue work, maybe prowler work and bodyweight stuff. I pulled something around my knee a couple days ago and it was very noticeable today trying to deadlift.

bah,

taking some time off has me wondering. I've been in the mood for some more squatting and benching and im feeling like going back to a 5x5 method 3 days a week kind of SS but only moving weights up when all 5 reps for all sets are hit, and im pretty conditioned for higher volume work so I may give it a shot.

it's either that or boring but big but idea is more simplicity and more strength work. votes?

So like a Bill Starr 5x5 approach?

Sure, why not?
