    95 x 5
    135 x 5
    185 x 3
    225 x 3
    275 x 1
    315 x 3 (actually 320 50 lb bar) felt GREAT on my hips felt so good today i considered maxing.. but will stay the course.

    315 x 3 bar was ****ed it bends more on one side than the other
    405 x 6 not a PR, Probably need a week or 2 of deadlifts but i keep hitting my #s for 5/3/1 so just trying to stick the course

    Leg Press
    3 plates x 20
    4 plates x 20
    5 plates x 15
    *changed position so its pure quads, keeps the hips feeling good and feel like its more benificial*

    Hamstring Curls
    3 x 12 with 90 lbs

    Calf Presses
    3 x F with 315

    Knee raises
    3 x 15 with 40 lbs

    Feeling damn good the plan for now is to keep doing triples raw then adding bands for a heavy 5/3/1 set and keeping my deadlifts at my 5-3-1 routine so squats will look like this
    275 x 3 with bands 365 x 3
    315 x 3 with bands 395 x 3
    335 x 3 with bands 415 x 1
    DELOAD then next schedule start at 315, seems like a dummy routine but will see how it works. seems to be working now and keeps me pain free.

    On another note so idea what i will do for dynamic Effort cant speed bench for 2 week. Probably just do assitance work for Shoulders,Triceps and no barbell work so hopefully ill be fresh for mondays ME floor press
