So much for sticking with the plan, haha. I had a trip planned for early next week which got moved back to over the weekend. I will have to combine bench & military today and squat & deads tomorrow, but will get back to my actual schedule next week.

As far as today's session, I was just getting the reps in today. I know that I could get 265 and 160 for 12+, but I am trying to let my body recover a little from previous training. I am also going to follow Wendler's advice and "pick my battles" as to when I go for PRs.
