6 weeks out, Day 2, AM deadlifts and bench press, PM squats

Whatever cold symptoms I had the previous three days seemed to have started to go away so instead of taking it easy today, I ended up pushing things pretty good.  Since I squatted four days in a row last week (80 total work reps), I decided I'd try to bench press every day this week to see how things felt.  The goal will be to increase my weekly volume of bench press work reps from about 80 to 100.  I also added a little volume to my morning light deadlift workout and added in some light bench presses.

For the evening heavy squat workout, I had intended on working up to a double with 455 but ended up singleing it instead.  Still managed some good work reps at higher intensities though.  Tomorrow morning is heavy bench press day so I'll be interested to see how it feels to bench press three days in a row.  In the evening, I plan to get in about 20-25 reps of medium intensity squats.
