No WOD, just Front Squats and Deadlifts

I decided that I would use Tuesdays and Thursdays for strength work and low-intensity cardio (1 hour on the bike trainer @120 bpm heart rate). So today I did:
Front squats
45 lbsx6
55x6
65x6
70x6
75x6
80x6
Maybe I do better in the morning but 80 lbs was okay until the last two reps when I had to really work to get up.

Then
Deadlifts
75lbs x 5
95x5
115x5
125x5
125x5
135x5
I'm still being conservative on my deadlifts, my back was feeling a little tweaked even before I started the front squats.  After the deadlifts, my lower back feels a little sore, but not in pain.  Progress! 

After work, I will do my low-intensity cardio on the bike trainer and pullups with a 1" band (5 sets of 10 reps).
