yesterday's (Wednesday, 03/07/12) work:
Squat: 5x125 lbs, 5x175, 2x5x225
OHP: 5x45, 5x75, 5x105, 5x130
Deadlift: 5x205, 5x245, 5x285, 5x325, 5x370
Changed up my squats to get 2 sets in at 225 as opposed to another lighter warmup set. I'm not really seeing a point to doing a squat at 75 lbs. My warmups sets are always well controlled, as I use them to set my muscle memory for the heavier lifts. I figure the two sets at 225 ATG are still light warmup sets for my deadlift anyway. The deadlifts were hard, as expected. I rested for a second between the later reps in the set to catch my breath and reset my body position (I'm not letting the bar drop too forcefully but there is still a little bounce from the octagonal plates).
I started drinking coconut water and taking zinc and magnesium pills last week right after my workouts in addition to eating a banana and some dates to help with recovery. I've definitely noticed an improvement in my energy levels in the few hours after working out but by the time I get home from work at night (usually ~5 hours after my workout) I'm still damn worn out and ready to go right to bed, which I can't do
