7 weeks out, Day 3, AM bench press, PM squats

I increased the weights for heavy bench press day this morning but the weights felt heavy and I tired quicker than usual.  It felt like I wasn't fully recovered from Monday's bench pressing and Tuesday's squats.  I've been keeping track of my nutrition on the myfitnesspal.com website and I think my carb intake the past 5 days has been a little low.  I had previously been eating between 150 and 300 grams a day with most days around 200 grams.  The last 5 days have been 147, 147, 114, 117, and 115.  It wasn't by plan, just where things ended up.  I guess I will try to bump up the carbs and see if that gets things back on track.

I knew I was going to be able to get in an evening workout so I left the shoulder accessory work until later.  Since I normally don't train on Wednesday evenings, I decided to throw in an extra squat session.  The only soreness from the previous evening's workout was from my adductor work.  There was some fatigue in the mid-back area but it was minor.  I have my normal light squat session tomorrow morning and I'll be interested to see how things feel.
