I will keep the 27 sec RI on pullups during next week.

I was a bit nervous before the squats but I got it!   
Calf training is going really well (I wish the rest of me gained that fast).
I also did a PB in DBPB so it's a really good day. Pullups is moving forward....
Not at "calf speed" but still...
Cambered bar for the rest of the week and friday I'll use
rubber band and added weight to train the top part of the pullup.

Moving along fine liked the increase in BNP. Calfs are moving
really fast now.   :D
I'll have to do the monday WO on sunday so I'm wondering
if I should decrease the weight on squats to 216 lbs and go for 3x10 instead of 3X9 at 220 lbs?

Kill the weight on squats, but it nearly killed me on the last rep.
Got some help and pointers from the weightlifters. To sum that up: Legs strong enough, trust in them is not! Hold that chest high and just go!
A PB in pullups 8 consecutive!    :)
Hit a plateau on DB press... or at least it feels that way.
Calfs....   ;D
