Strength testing

I *think* my knee is healed.  I never got to see a specialist, but on the bright side, if it's not healed I'm still in the queue.  I've been taking the bus to work since we moved offices to downtown.  This has extended my trip to and from work considerably, and frankly, I don't feel like doing anything when I get home.  I decided to take advantage of a corporate Goodlife account, and the plan is to go during my lunch break.  It's a nice facility, and the only real downer is that you can't use chalk.

Laser vision correction was awesome.  I'm 20/15 vision, and I only need reading glasses now.  

Squats:45x2x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 275x1, 315x1, 335x1
Bench: 45x2x5, 135x5, 185x3, 205x1, 225x1
Deadlift: 135x5, 225x3, 315x1, 365x1, 405xF

My numbers for most of last year were pretty odd.  Lots of injuries and messing around.

7 Sept 14
345 (drop of 10 lbs)

7 Sept 14
275 (drop of 50 lbs)

5 Oct 14
355x1x4 (looks like an increase of 10 lbs, but I did 4 reps back then.  I should be able to hit that with straps - I'll see.)


Goal Date: 29 Apr 2016
Squat: 400 lbs (need 55)
Bench: 300 lbs (need 75)
Deadlift: 600 lbs (need 145 lol)

Now the question is HOW am I going to get there.  I think initially I'll stick to real low rep, like singles on the heavy sets, just to get my CNS and muscles firing again.  Nothing complicated, just do squats and bench one day, some cardio the next, then squats and bench, cardio, deadlifts and some foam rolling and the like.

Sorry to ask you to verify, but the sunglass spammers have been going crazy.
