6 weeks out, day 2, no energy

Don't know if I'm fighting something off or just in a down period but I've been really tired even though I've been getting plenty of sleep and food.  Probably just tired because sometimes tired happens.  Rather than skip the session, I felt like I needed to get in some work since not every session is a breakthrough, throw the bar around, type of session.  Sometimes ya just gotta do some work and let things happen.

Started with overhead presses for no other reason than I didn't want to start right into deadlifting.  It's been a long time since the last time I did them so I just worked up to a pretty tough single. I should keep these in the rotation on deadlift day.  After that, my original plan was to do 5 singles with 545 but since I felt like a turd, I ended up working up to only 1 single.  It was still a chance to start conditioning my hook grip so my hands got a good workout.

Finished up with some low intensity barbell rows and some light bench press volume.  It was a good session for what it was.  Enough stress to keep the body used to moving some weight but not heavy or hard enough to break anything.

Overhead press:  45x10, 95x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x3, 205x3, 225x1

Deadlift:  315x3, 405x3, 495x1, 545x1

Barbell rows:  225x5x3 sets

Bench Press:  all reps paused, 135x10, 225x5, 245x5x5 sets
