Back Squat: 140
Bench: 135 x 5-5-4-5-5

The squats felt good - I'm still not totally upright, particularly at the bottom, but I'm getting better and better. I think warming up on the Smith machine helps kinesthesically (or whatever I'm trying to say there).

The bench felt really heavy, particularly the last rep. It helps to visualize my body, particularly my core muscles, as a solid floor that I'm pressing off of. Keeps everything really tight. But I'm feeling it in my front deltoids more than my pecs, which could mean that I'm doing it wrong, I suppose, or it could just mean that's the weakest link in my chain.
