Jump Rope
Agile 8
Squats:  3x5x45 + 3×60 + 2×80 + 5×115 + 2x5x105
Bench:  3x5x45 + 3×65 + 2×85 + 3x5x95
Deadlifts: 2x5x65 + 2×95 + 5×115

Starting from scratch.

Jump ropes to get the blood flowing and warm the body up.  I quickly found myself sucking in pretty big gulps of air with just ten to fifteen consecutive jumps.
After the that, I went on to do my agile 8 stretches.  Surprisingly, the stretches didn’t wear me out that much.  Just thinking now, though, I just realized I forgot to do one of the stretches (fire hydrants).

Squats weren’t bad.  The weight had a light heaviness to it, but nothing that got me nervous.  I was able to break a sweat.  Grip width started wider then progressively went narrower as my shoulder got some more stretch.
Bench reps were somewhat difficult.  I’m encountering the same old issue of my right side working harder than my left side.  Managed to crank out all the reps.
Deadlifts were pretty easy, nice and light.
