--A.8 x 15lbs.
--B.8 x 18lbs.
--C.8 x 21lbs.
--D.8 x 25lbs.

II. Chin-ups

--D.6 x BW (sup)

III. Military Press (seated - didn't feel like going outside)

Lower Body

I. Conventional Deadlifts
--A.8 x 200lbs.
--B.8 x 215lbs.
--C.8 x 230lbs.
--D.6 x 240lbs.

II. Romanian Deadlifts
--A.8 x 175lbs.
--B.8 x 185lbs.
--C.8 x 195lbs.

Comments: Not a bad workout. I know I could've done better; I wasn't completely focused because I was at my friend's house and his basement ceiling is too low for me to stand up straight. I had to find specific spots to be able to stand up straight, which I was paranoid about. I'll definitely get more than 6 reps for 240 next time

Lol, thanks Aesir . Just set short term goals for every week or every workout. Personally, my goals consist of either getting a rep or two more on each set or increasing each set by 5 lbs. The weight adds up faster than you would think. Key: The higher the intensity, the better the results. Many times I up the weight with doubt in my mind that I could complete the set. Usually, your body is able to do more than you believe it can.

Good work... I like the fact that you changed up some of your routine from last month... That is the key to strength training (alternating your exercises)... I like the use of your body weight as resistance but would like to suggest use of dumbbells instead of barbells when able. It tends to work the core stabilizing muscle groups a lot better and carry over into function more than use of barbells....

Keep it up!
