Back to School and Back Bustin

I'm back to school and have my first week under my belt.   There is definitely a significant difference between training at home and training at school.  First, at home I am able to eat alot more and I also train in a better atmosphere I think.  The Turner Center at Ole Miss is filled with alot of people, most of whom do not know how to train or do not train as intensely as I would prefer.  The only reason this bothers me is because it makes it a less intense atmosphere.  However, before I went out for the first friday night back (hopefully not to ruin all progress) I had a very good back workout.  I had a little problem because there was someone squatting where I usually deadlift.  I am very impatient, so rather than waiting I did my 1 Arm rows first.  This definately hurt my grip on the deadlift, but luckily I only went up to 75% for 2 reps.  So here was my workout:

1 Arm Rows: worked up to 150 lb. dumbbells for 18 reps each side.
Deadlift: worked up to 395x2 (75%) and did 5 sets of 5 for speed at 315
Chest-Supported Rows: 4x5
Pulldowns: 3x12-15
Reverse Grip Pulldowns: 3x12-15
Hammer Curls: 3x8-10
Low Pulley Curls supersetted with wide grip barbell curls: 3 sets

Just trying to get a wide back!! 
After the back workout I had a weekend filled with hangin with friends, feelin like a bad person, and sleeping with the Ripster.
