    315 x 1/1/1

    Was kind of sloppy today. Not sure why, but I just wasn't very focused.
    Top single at 365 felt like a true 8 RPE, and...

    Eli - Good job just getting in some work right now. Anything chest supported is obviously going to allow you to lift far less weight, but I have no idea on what the specific ration would be between...

    I think it's fine, and if running your own programming gets you invested enough to stick to it then you should go with it.

    Started out with 50's, changed to 60's for the last 4 sets as it became apparent that the 50's were pretty light...

    155 pounds - 4 sets x 3 reps
    Planned for 6 sets of 3 at 70%. 155 is probably below 70%. Decided to stop at 4 sets since I'm not 100% comfortable with this lift. ...

    @Eli - The 'speed' aspect isn't the most beneficial part for me since I seem to pull better at higher percentages when moving the bar relatively slowly off the floor. It fits well in my overall...
