Default Josh's Log

I decided to start a log today, I've never logged my workouts in the past this will be a fun experiment. I just started a 9 week OL cycle, the one that just got finished on the catalyst website. My current goals are to increase my Snatch and Clean and Jerk, along with front squats and back squats. My long term goal is to compete in the crossfit games this year, but right now i'm taking a break from volume to focus on strength.

Current Stats:
18 years old
160 lbs

(All weights in lbs)
Snatch- 205
Clean and Jerk- 235
Back Squat- 345
Deadlift- 415
3RM push press- 235
Overhead Squat- 235
Bench Press- 300
Front Squat- 305
Power Clean- 195

Hopefully this squat cycle will increase my back squat, which hasn't been tested in a while, so I'm shooting for as close to 400 as possible. We'll see how it goes.

Nice and Speedy workout today.

Snatch HEavy Single- 195 lbs

Clean and Jerk Heavy single- 215 lbs, felt really solid, could have done more.

Back Squat heavy single- 325 lbs, hard but doable

SLDL- 2x5- 225lbs

Hopefully my back hold up from the sldl's, havent done them in a while. We'll see.
