Notes:  Stalled out on bench and squat now, from the look of it.  I suspect it's because I'm just not eating enough to put on the muscle any further increase in poundage would require.  At this point, I pretty much have to pick a goal and go with it.  I pick abs.  I can always bulk again later.  Going to shift gears this week back to something closer to a PTTP template, and cut back a bit more on food intake.  We'll see if I can get down to about 168 and maintain all my current 5RM numbers (335 deadlift, 295 squat, 205 bench, 120 press).

1 I eat a low-to-moderate carb paleo/primal diet.  Some dairy, occasionally white rice for carbs when needed.
