Big FS day! Had an older coach there that worked with me and gave me some tips and motivation.

FS: Up to 220x5x2, 225x5, 235x3 (all PR's!!), 185x5

DL: Worked to 5 doubles at 275.

About 20 mins of walking and running on treadmill.

Leg Press: 360x8, 450x8, 500x8
Knee was bugging me a bit so I called it a night.

Quick but better than nothing.

Ran 5 miles on treadmill in about 39 mins. Would have gone further but was hampered by knee and lower back nagging me. Didn't want to kill them.

Sat May 21
FS: Worked up to 225x5, 230x5, 235x5 (PR), 185x5

Did some shrugs and chin-ups, alternating:
Chins: 10-10-6
DB Shrugs: 120x15, 130x10, 120x15

Eliptical 20 mins

Would have done a bit more volume w/ FS but knee was still a bit tender and didn't want to push my luck.
