Switched to 3x5 instead of 5x5 during the week when time is tight


Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 175lb with 3 min rests
  • I meant to bump up to 180lb, but got distracted talking to someone and ended up with 175
  • Form felt good and weight didn't feel too tough

Bench press

Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 145lb with 5 min rests
  • Successful reps: 4, 3, 3
  • I didn't feel as much control as I would have liked. I'll do one more attempt at 150 and then deload to 135, if I don't complete 150.

Barbell row

Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 140lb with 3 min rests
  • Felt ok on R wrist and overall form felt ok
