4 weeks out, bench press and squat volume day

Stuck with a high bar carry for my squats to save some wear and tear on my elbow and to change the groove slightly to hit the lower back and quads.  Kept the weight low but increased the reps.  By the end, my lower back was very pumped up, enough that I didn't have much left for barbel rows at the end of the session.

Worked the bench presses all touch and go rather than pausing them.  Just wanted to see if the change made a difference on how the various muscle groups fatigued.

Overall a good, basic session and got a decent amount of repetitions in.  It will be interesting to see how squats go on Tuesday since I'll be back to working up to triples.

Squats:  135x10, 225x5, 275x6, add belt, 315x10, 315x10, 315x8

Bench Press:  135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 255x5, 275x3, 275x3, 275x3, 255x5, 255x4

Barbell Rows:  225x6, 245x4, 225x6
