Test & a New PR

Sumo Deadlift: 135x3, 165x3, 195x3, 225x3, 255x3, 285x3, 315x1. Not the best that it has been, but I can work with it. Am trying to adjust my workout. Don't know how just yet, but I will think of something.

Incline Bench Press: 85x5, 105x5, 125x5, 145x3, 165x2, 185x1, 205x1, 225x1 (PR). 205 went up so clean that I decided to go for the 5-pound PR. So I had someone from work spot me and give me a handoff. I launched it quick and hit my sticking point but just kept pushing until it moved again. I think I could now say that the dead benches with the chains are gold. Or, I could just show the numbers:

1.) September 20: Incline Bench 195x3 (about 206-210 calculated max)
2.) October 5: started doing the dead bench presses w/1-pr of chains
3.) October 13: Incline Bench 220x1
4.) October 28: Incline Bench 225x1

EZ Bar Curls: 80x5x4

I have makeup Navy PRT next weekend so I probably won't go for it. But if I do, I will probably do another dead bench workout (maybe Saturday) and do a test on Wednesday on Inclines with 230. I don't have doubts that it works but if I nail this then I will be absolutely convinced.
