3 weeks out, Day 4, deadlift and bench press

I didn't sleep well last night so I skipped the morning light squat workout.   I also knew that I had to deadlift up to heavy single tonight so I figured I might as well let my back rest as much as possible.  My plan for tonight was to do some heavy singles, working up to a top set with 585.

Everything felt pretty good and my three top singles of 545, 565, and 585 reached my goals for the session.  Since I haven't pulled anything heavier than 545 since the last meet in June, I wasn't completely sure 585 would be there but it was.  585 in the gym usually means I'm good for at least 605 in a meet so unless something changes between now and November 29th, I'll probably open with 250-255 kgs and jump to 275 kgs for my second.

I finished up with some touch and go bench presses to make up for some of the volume I skipped on Monday and Wednesday.  Tomorrow morning I'll hit my last light squat workout and some more bench presses.

Deadlift:  315x5, 405x3, add belt, 495x1, 545x1, 565x1, 585x1

Bench Press:  all reps touch and go, 135x5, 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5

Hanging leg raise:  20, 20

2 more sleeps until Vegas baby!
