Squat 60 x5 (5 Sets)
Overhead Press 40 x5 (5 Sets)
Deadlift 55 x5 (1 Set)
I decided to test my max pushups again, got 25. Either I wasn't pushing hard enough for my 20, or this is working.

13 days ago:
70lbs, couldn't do proper form with this weight.
85lbs with perfect form.
I'm insanely impressed with myself. Talking max weight with proper form, you could say 2 weeks ago was 65 lbs. I had 70 on the barbell, benched it and had to recount the weights it was so light. I benched 80 with ease, 85 I had to push with all my might, but I got it.

Thanks! I hate the running, but I don't mind lifting.
Forgot to write down what I did yesterday.
Squat - 75 x5 (5 Sets)
Bench - 50 x5 (5 Sets)
Rows - 50 x5 (5 Sets)

Yeah but I get plenty of exercise where my heartrate is up for a while, the HIIT is just a little boost. For working out, stuff is starting to get heavy, but things that still feel light (like the bench press) I'll do more. Thanks!

I only have another 5 pounds of weight for 85, I'll just squat 85 until I can get more weights.

On a side note, I somehow managed to hurt my lower back bench pressing . I think I was curving my back. It happened yesterday, it is already a lot better.

3 weeks ago I couldn't do a proper 70lb press. Today I did a few reps like it was nothing. Also, I can do 31 pushups now! My goal of 30 has been achieved, time to aim for 35.
