-warmup reps are getting higher, i am trying to increase my endurance a little before i get too heavy and have to do my 5 rep sets..once i go back to DC, its more reps in a set, so im simultaniously trying to gain some higher rep endurance, but still stick to the 3x5
-still no straps for deads

Hey big guy, if your trying to gain more endurance why not try higher reps.

Heres the thing you can still keep going heavy, just pyramid down in weight as you increase reps. Ive done 3x5 5x5 whatever and pyramiding down and so far Ive seen GREAT improvements in my main three lifts. Just thought you might want to give it a try.

For example,
Warmup: 135 for 10, 185 for 8, 225 for 5, 275 for 2
Working set: 320 for 5-6reps...drop to 275 for your next set (7-8reps), then drop to 225 for your last set (10 reps).

-next week I increase situps to 20 reps each set

-squats: since learning better form w/ hip drive I am progressing very nicely, it feels light
-Bench: progressing very good now, same as squats, feels light!

busy day today, in and out in 45 min...i was warming up the next lift while finishing off the prior
