I completed 5x5 at 160 lbs. I originally said that I thought my hip flexors were hurting because of squats, but I think that squats just stretch my hip flexors and that they actually hurt from abs.
I completed 1x5 at 205 lbs. This felt good which it should, because by max is 225 lbs.
Although this was still pretty easy, I felt it in my shoulders after the workout. I already know that my shoulders are relatively weak and need to start catching up.
I completed 5x5 at 5 lbs. This was pretty hard. I wasn't sure I fully completed a couple of the reps, but I'm going to go up in weight next workout anyways. I'll be more conscious about getting the full rep before a move up again after that though. Like I said, I think these lifts were hurting my hip flexors. I'm doing inclined crunches on an ab bench at almost a 45 degree angle. It takes quite a bit of force from my hip flexors to keep my butt in the right spot. The pain is very similar to DOMS. So I'm not worried.
I weighed 160.0 lbs. This was a drop of a pound from my last workout, which is pretty insignificant. Of course, I always want to see my weight go up, but a pound difference doesn't mean much. I only care about seeing the long term (weekly/monthly) numbers going up.
