Default Some personal milestones...

I hope people don't mind but I wanted to share some recent PRs because I've gone from nothing to these in 6 months of work with Gary Valentine. His method is to work on the components individually and also together. Still bringing a lot together but the progress is encouraging:

Pull - 160kg (1RM after 10 previous reps at lower weight)
Front squat - 116kg (1RM after 30 reps)
Jerk - 95kg (20th rep on a 20 rep progression)
C&J - 90kg (still hard to bring it all together since I can power clean what I can clean)

I've been going up quickly in the squats because I've finally gotten the depth down. Up 7kg in 3 days this week. I know it's beginner's progress but I'll take it anyway.

I've got to say that 160kg feels like a lot of weight. I can't imagine how strong I'd need to be to C&J that much weight although Gary tells me that when you jump under it, it's easier. Still having that much weight overhead is a mega accomplishment.

Now snatches are another story. Still working in the 40ks and 50ks.
