16 weeks out, Day 3, squats, bench press, sumo deadlift

As usual on Sundays, everything felt heavy.  Still highbar squatting because my left elbow isn't pain free yet but my quads need the work so it's probably a blessing in disguise.  Tried going a little wider in the stance but I have no power out of the hole that way so I moved my stance back to my competition width.

Bench presses moved slow but I probably wasn't fully recovered from Thursday's session.  Next bench workout is lighter weights for touch and go sets so everything should be recovered and good to go by the time a heavy workout comes around on Thursday.

Sumo deadlifts were cut short because my legs were done from the squats earlier.  I think I'll need to dial back the work weights on these to 365 and treat them like speed work or something.

Highbar squats:  135x5, 225x5, 275x5, add belt, 315x5, 365x3x5 sets

Bench Press: all reps paused, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 255x5, add wrist wraps, 285x4, 285x4, 285x3, 285x3

Sumo Deadlift:  225x5, 315x5, 405x3, 405x3
