Glad you are still having fun. I just tried some bench in the gym a few minutes ago and could not get above 215. I was hoping for a lot more. I may not get that mythical 1000lb total at this upcoming meet :-/
I was shooting for 1100 if I could hit near-PR weight in each lift. Not gonna happen; squat was like 70 lbs lighter than I've done in training.
Some 19 year old kid just squatted like 585 or so, which is badass.
Today: shoulder PT at noon (will find out if I get more exercises or keep up with the same, will also be asking if swimming is okay b/c my shoulders crunch a lot), swimming or bicycling after work. Maybe both, given how hot it's supposed to be.

Warm-up ... 400m row, then
Chin-ups (with band): 20 (last 5 needed slight kip)
KB swings (20kg): 2 sets of 5 just to warm up
Pushups: 8 (full, straight - yeah, as a 175lb female, I'm darn proud of that!)
Deadlift (5-3-1 deload week) 3x5 @ 100/125/150
Air squats, push-ups, lunge with 15lb plate overhead in 40/20/10 pattern. Had to move to knee push-ups after 20 b/c I didn't want to take foreverever
