I went to the less nice gym today. It is where most of the bigger guys lift. Which is nice...there is a little etiquette during the middle of the day. I'm normally the smallest guy in there during the middle of the day which I don't mind at all. There are no mats for deadlifting and the equipment is older. It's worth the little bit of sanity.
Deadlifts - 5X3 285, 295, 305, 315, 325

Thanks Hopper. Nailed the deadlifts today. I could have done more. I'll save it for next week. I met one of my buddies in the gym...hadn't seen him in forever. He is going to be one of the linebacker coaches for the school next year. He was part of the ASU team that won the IAA Championship 3 years in a row. After deads I just worked out with him and one of his friends. I went away from my routine, but I don't think it will hurt me because I was hitting the same muscles. And if it did hurt, I don't care...it was a great workout.
I FINALLY found exactly what I'm talking about when I say "T-bar Row". It's actually a Lying T-Bar Row. For me...it just takes all of the stress off of the lower back. I don't suppose it's quite as good as JS Rows, but it is super close. I get a better workout doing these just because I don't cheat. I love this exercise...it was built for me. I do them pretty much like the guy in the video...although I only hold and squeeze on the last rep of every set.
Normal T-bar rows are without the chest pad...just stand bent at the waist, but it's more or less the same apparatus.
