The rock climbing sounds cool, you have some good weather at the moment?
Nice workout as well, do you alternate between pulling from the floor and from the rack? Solid strength there.

It was indoor climbing at a local shop with soe walls. I would say these days i pull from the rack a little bit more often. I find it a little more difficult than pulling from the floor as there is no leg drive and relies all on movement from a deadstop only using your back.

Decent workout tonight while at work.

Incline BB Bench Press:
135x5, 165x3, 205x1, 135x5, 205x2, 165x10, 165x10, 165x8, 165x8, 165x6

Did these with a thick bar tonight. Made them a lot more difficult.

Bench Dips:
BWx30, 30, 30, 60

Barbell Squats:
135x6, 205x2, 225x2, 295x1, 325x1, 345x1, 355x1

No belt tonight and did them barefoot because my workboots are not well suited for squats.

Rack Squats:
295x1, 295x1, 315x4

First time doing these. Pretty difficult. Start from bottom of movement at about 80-90% depth.

My little brother came to town with my parents today. I love working out with him. He knows how to push me like no other. It's nice working out with another strong person with experience as well. We only had about 40 minutes to get it done but here is what we did:

Romanian Deadlifts:
55x10
145x8
195x6
235x6
285x8
325x8
375x3

Push Press:
95x12
135x10

Widest Grip Lat Pulldowns:
101x12
126x10
101x12

EZ Strict Curls:
75x8 x 3 sets

Palms Up BB Wrist Curls:
75x10
75x12

Palms Down DB Wrist Curls:
10's x 20, 20, 20, 16

Set a huge PR for RDL's because of my brother and using chalk today.
