Starting Strength Day 15, 11-3-08

Squat 3 x 5 - 210 lbs (PR)
Bench Press 3 x 5 - 135 lbs
Deadlift 1 x 5 - 295 lbs

I'm enjoying the fact now that every time I squat it will be a PR until I hit a plateau.  The Squats felt pretty good.  heavy, but good.  It definitely helps to whip myself into a mental frenzy right before each set.  I tried to focus on that and really get psyched up.  I'm now confident I'll get 215 on Wed and 220 on Fri.  Added 10lbs to the deadlift again today to make them tougher like the squats are.  I'm still using a palms toward me grip on both hands to try and build up my grip strength.  I'll continue doing so as long as possible until my grip fails and then I'll switch to an opposing grip so my grip won't keep me from working up into heavy weight.
