5x5's: Welcome Back

I've missed the 5x5's. I think they've done me a lot of good, and I'm anxious to try them in combination with my shiny new diet. So today we headed back to IW for some good ol' fashioned strength work:

Back squat: 130
Bench: 130

I backed it off 10-15 pounds from where I left them a couple months ago, and I think that was the right call - these felt plenty challenging, particularly the bench. It felt good to squat again, but I've never really been fond of the bench press, so that was more tolerance than good times.
