Back at er' Day 12 of 24

I'm mostly healed up so it's time to get back to work. Dr gave me the OK to start training again. Here's today's program.

Squats - bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/5 reps, 365lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep, 315lbs/5 reps, 315lbs/5 reps.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps (close grip), 3 sets/6 reps/225lbs.
Deadlifts (Sumo) - 6 sets/1 rep/315lbs.

I was quite short on time today. I was enjoying the morning out with my wife at a garden center. All I wanted to accomplish was to see if I was ready to take on heavier weights. I'm ready. The deadlifts at the end of the work out were like doing speed work. Very easy pulls.
This week end I'll be working in the garden. Next week the gear comes out. Deadlifts at 495lbs. Sounds like fun I can't wait.
