I'm stoked with my gains over 2 months!
clean 155-175
press 125-135
pull-up 55-65
squat 210-235

These are all PR's for me, and even though I'm 36, I plan on making new PR's for a long time. I still don't know what the hell I'm doing with the olympic lifts so I'm not attempting to hurt myself by trying to find my 1rm's . The snatch feels very unstable, form is weak and I don't catch it near as low as I should even at 95 lbs. The jerk is even newer to me but seems less complex. I am able to do 165 but my form still sucks. The up coming strength cycle will be used to acquaint myself with the lifts and improve form to give myself a stabe platform to increase weight safely later. The hypertrophy cycle didn't allow time to practice with any real weight, so my form errors are exaggerated now that i'm adding weight. Looking forward to more gains!!
