Starting Strength:
Squat 5/5/5 @ 85 lbs (+5 from Thursday — 85 lbs is my 5rm but I’ve never been able to do a second set before!)
Press 5/5/5 @ 37 lbs (+5 from last Monday)

Pull-up work:
15 chin-ups in as few sets as possible (aiming for 5/5/5) using the lightest resistance band: 5/5/5 — this was more of a warm-up for the negatives haha.
1 set of 5 negatives, hold each for at least 6 seconds — I held as long as possible which was a lot more than 6 seconds. Next time I’ll do 3 sets, and if I do the 15 chin-ups as well I’ll aim for 8/7 instead of 5/5/5.
