Notes: Monday's workout couldn't be completed as planned because all of the power racks were occupied when I arrived.  I did 5 min on a recumbent bike, but to no avail, so I jumped straight to bench press.  After all that, I tried a 250 lb squat and just had no gas in the tank, so I came back after work and did the "PM" list of exercises.  The rest of the week saw more failed reps, and I was pretty sure I'd exceeded my capacity to recover.  I'm taking the next week off.  Planning to start the following week with a 10% deload and a switch to 3x5 for all but deadlift (no reason to go lower than 1x5).
