15 weeks out, Day 2, bench press and sumo deadlifts

After the past two weeks of bench press PR's and near PR's, I decided to dial the intensity down a little and start a new ramp back up.  Used 295 as my work weight and managed a total of 20 paused reps over 6 sets for some decent volume.

Sumo deadlifts continue to feel better every week.  I used 475 for two sets of 3 as my top work sets.  They felt much better than when I tripled 475 a couple of weeks ago.  Finished up with two more sets of 5 with 405.  A couple more weeks and I feel like I'll be able to lift without thinking as much. When that happens, I'm going to start using a belt as well as incorporating short rest period singles with heavier weights.

Bench Press:  all reps paused, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 265x3, add wrist wraps, 295x4, 295x4, 295x3x4 sets

Sumo deadlift:  225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 455x3, 475x3, 475x3. 405x5, 405x5
