Really happy about the 275x3. I wanted to hit 5, but I got off a solid 3. Feeling pretty good about that.

It’s exam week currently, and I’m on a higher stress level than usual; so to be setting some PRs in the final week of this modified program is pretty exciting. Trying to decide what to do next week. I’ll be leaving school for a few weeks so that I can go home and relax with the family and the girlfriend. My gym at home is pretty pathetic, full of senior citizens, one bench and one squat rack.

Any suggestions for what to do during this 2 week time frame would be much appreciated.
