Notes:  Disappointments on Tuesday and Thursday. Pushing up against my current 5RMs (which are disappointingly lower than 5RMs I used to have).  I think this may be my last cycle of 5/3/1 for awhile.  My usual problem -- the program improves 1RM at the expense of 5RM and 3RM-- took a lot longer to surface this time 'round, but I attribute that largely to me eating at a significant surplus for the last couple of months.  I want to at least finish the cycle, because if I can hit the singles targets next week, I'll have 4 new PRs, and finally hit 4 plates for deadlift.  I'm nervous about hitting all the triple targets this week, though, so fingers crossed.
