Started my complete focus on Oly lifting today

3 POS Snatch 5 x 3 ( 20kg + 10lbs)
SN Push Press 5 x 5 ( 65, 75, 85, 85, 85)
Front Squat 3 x 5 @ 95
Ring Dips 3 x 12
Hanging Leg Raises 2 x 12

Front Squat was very light since this is the first time I've fully used them.. although I suspet my max is somewhere around 185.

unfortunately I don't have any bumprs lighter than 10kg so I have to make do with my metal plates.

Right now im just going off of MikesGym generic program until I get something put together with my training partner and my coach later this week.

Ok so today was tough and I know a lot of it was due to sleep. I kept waking up last night constantly and felt like I just didn't sleep. My nutrition has been off the last few days as well. Squats were just slow as hell today and my form just felt bad throughout the movement.

And I need chalk badly, the bar just constantly slips out of my hand even with the alternate grip.

Wed. 9/10

Squat

225 x 5 x 3

Press

115 x 5 x 3

Pwr. Clean

115 x 3 x 3

Today would have been better but the last set in the squats caused massive pressure in my right knee and made the rest of the workout uncomfortable especially standing. And I could not finish the cleans because of it and my form went to hell as a result anyways.

It doesn't hurt it's just plain uncomfortable as hell.. my guess would be tight hip flexors and quads since this has given me problems in the past.

Hopefully I don't have issues with this friday, i'd like to get that 230 in the squat and hopefully continue to increase the rest of my lifts for at least a few more workouts.

Squat and Deadlift are starting to get real heavy. I spent about 20 minutes stretching after the workout and my knee feels a little better as well as my hip.

9/15 BW: 153lbs

Squat

235 x 5 x 3 These felt strong today up untill my Right knee started bothering me again on the middle set but I managed with some stretching in between sets

Press

120 x 5 x 3 Very steady and strong, my form felt excellent

Power Cleans

120 x 3 x 5 My form is getting better and the pull off the ground feels more comfortable

Ring Dips

21, 15, 10

I love it, my strength is currently at it's best it's been since spring. The only thing causing problems would be my knee but even in the squats today I had a nice rebound from the bottom despite how heavy the weight felt.

In other news... I remembered why the CF boards have ever so annoyed me as of late after reading a few threads

Where in your knee is it hurting? Done any SMR for the surrounding areas?
