StrongLifts B

Squat 5×5 @ 225 lbs.*
Overhead Press: 3/3/3/3/0.5 @ 122.5 lbs.**
Deadlift: 1×5 @ 330 lbs.
Weighted Chinups: 5/4/3 @ BW + 2.5 lbs.

Body Weight: 200 lbs.

*As I described last time, I am going to try high volume, lightweight squats on B-days in order to give myself more time to recover between heavy squat days, not waste myself before the deadlift, and practice my form. To keep things simple, I will try alternating between two and three plates per side, 225 lbs and 315 lbs, on light and heavy days, respectively. Currently, 225 lbs is downright easy, which is nice considering that weight presented my first major plateau about a year ago.

**As expected, I experienced episodes of lightheadedness during the overhead press, the worst of all occurring during my last set. That one was bad enough for me to rack the weight before I completely lowered the rep, so I didn't fully count it. Here's hoping I don't die next time.
