Notes: TM didn't happen this week, nothing did, really.  I'm at 5 weeks with no back-off and my joints need some rest.  This is the leanest I've been at a weight of 180, but I'm still probably primed for some slimming down as Fall starts in earnest.

Notes: Other than PCs on Monday rather than deads, this is basically a TM week, with a good start and middle and an utter failure at the end.  The 305 squat was supposed to be a 5RM test, and I couldn't do 4, and I could not press 135 past an inch or so above my head.  This makes 4 consistent weeks of full-body workouts in a row.  Going to do one more then take a backoff week, I think.
