Nevermind man, we all have average workouts from time to time. Hangover to blame?

Look forward to seeing what happens to your squats and DL's with your new PL'ing belt, which one did you order? Throw a photo up when it arrives!

Nailed the deadlifts but didn't have a spotter available to test bench and squats :/

DEADLIFT
60Kg x 5 reps
110Kg x 2 reps
150Kg x 1 rep PB!
165Kg x 1 rep PB!!
175Kg x 1 rep PB!!!

Wasn't gonna push for the 175Kg yet but the 165Kg was fine 8) super happy, I've got a video to upload shortly!

Finished up with some pull ups

No spotters again.. So I'm just play about with some heavyish singles on squats and bench as scheduled on 5x5. Probably testing maxes on tuesday or wednesday.

SQUATS
20Kg x 5 reps
60Kg x 5 reps
80Kg x 3 reps
100Kg x 3 reps
110Kg x 2 reps
This was all I was comfortable squatting without a spotter.

BENCH PRESS
50Kg x 5 reps

67.5Kg x 5 reps
67.5Kg x 5 reps
67.5Kg x 5 reps
67.5Kg x 5 reps
67.5Kg x 5 reps

Then just did some pull ups and stuff. Crappy training once again.

Hey everyone, just to say I'm taking a little break from training and logging for a while. I've got some important college stuff to do that's due in the next couple of weeks and I've also got a 4 day festival from thurs-Mon that I'm attending so things are gonna get messy ;)
I'll still check in with everyone when I can to see how everyone is and I'll get back on the training and start again with 5x5 asap. Love and peace, hope everyones doing okay!
