205 is where I should be on Squats. I can do 5 reps of 215, but it's a close thing. I should be able to do a couple of sessions with 205 on all sets and then move up to 210 or 215 pretty quickly.

Bench was disappointing today. If I'm honest with myself, I'll admit I'm pushing myself a bit more with the weight on bench and military press than on the other exercises. It's probably because one of my main goals is to get a max bench of 300 or more within the next couple of months. If I can't at least get back up to 5 x 5 x 225 by the end of next week, I'll have to deload and try again.

I'm still surprised at how easy it is to stack more and more weight on the deadlift. It doesn't have as steep of a learning curve as I'd anticipated. Next workout I should be able to start at 205 and move up to 225.

I don't think I rested long enough after my first set of pullups. I could almost get to the top on the 8th rep of the 2nd set, but not quite. Still need to get a chain belt or figure out an alternative way to add weight, but I'm broke for now.
