Notes: So I decided to try doing a structured wave approach to scaling up my target weights, 4 steps forward, 3 steps back.  Of course, I just realized in going through my notes that I had screwed up and not advanced my press target weight on Wednesday.  Sadness.  Also, I overdid it a bit on Wednesday's random extra crap, so Thursday and Friday were a lot harder than they needed to be.

Notes: I'm liking this so far.  The workouts are only about 30-35 minutes, so I'm not left feeling voracious, which is helping me keep my portion sizes down.  I feel like I'm really making progress on both barbell lifts, too, even Friday's lifts felt challenging but well within my ability.  I definitely need a break from squats.  Even now, after more than a week, I still have a faint line on my upper back.  Speaking of my upper back, this week alone I've seen visible improvement in my lats, traps, and rhomboids.
