Older is not always wiser.

So I attempt this beauty from Saturday 060729:
Deadlift 3-2-2-1-1-1 reps
Bench press 3-2-2-1-1-1 reps
Back Squat 3-2-2-1-1-1 reps

...and it seems that one cannot do anything near their max effort bench or squat after their max effort deadlift, I petered out quickly with this after a herculean effort at Deads:
DL 3x250-2x285-2-300-1x305 failed-1x275-1x275-1x275
Bench press 3x155-2x175-2x195-1x200 failed-1x175-1x175-1x175

I then did 100 jumping dips & 100 body rows in the yard outside the company.

Saved Rounds on Leadership:
"General A.M. Gray, the 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, once stated that even if there are only two Marines together, one is always senior. What this means is that sooner or later all Marines find themselves in leadership positions. Because of this, Marine Corps leadership transcends rank and billet. Each of us must be prepared to step up and assume the mantle of leadership, and each of us must set the example for others.
The most important responsibiltiy in our Corps is to lead Marines. Marine Corps leadership is what has made Marines successful in war and peace for over two centuries. Many things make the Marine Corps unique from other military organizations. One of the most important of these is our leadership philosophy. All Marines are considered leaders and our philosophy of leadership is the same from private to Commandant."
