You and me both!

If I had known a few months ago how easy it would have been to drink a gallon of milk I would have gained weight so much faster.

Luckily I now know how well my stomach takes to milk, though this is not true of several other dairy products. I think this will make gaining much easier now.

Dec. 12

First Day of Oly Lifting with a coach. Very enjoyable and did pretty damn well. Lasted an Hour and a Half and I think CF and SS really helped with form on some of it.

Practiced Hang Clean and Clean and Jerk. Form on Clean and Jerk needs plenty of practice on balance though.

12/14 WOD

Squat:
45 x 5 x 2
95 x 5 x 1
115 x 3 x 1
135 x 2 x 1

165 x 5 x 3 ( felt fairly light may or may not move up on monday but my grip felt weak on my left hand)

Press:
45 x 5 x 2
55 x 5 x 1
65 x 3 x 1
75 x 2 x 1

90 x 5 x 3

Deadlift:
95 x 5 x 1
135 x 5 x 1
185 x 3 x 1
205 x 2 x 1

215 x 5 x 1 ( I need to buy chalk, the weight nearly fell out of my hands because they were sweaty)

Practice:

Hang Clean 29.4 kg 5 x 2, 3 x 1

Clean and Jerk 20 kg x 5 x 3, fixed footing and worked on balance and practiced another set of 5 x 3

Had to place blue tape on the ground measured in order to place my feet. Also had to work on balancing the bar overhead and found that tightening at the top of the explosion tended to fix the balance issues. But that was only with the bar.

I need to build a platform and invest in some bumpers....


On another note my weight has gone from 131 - 134. This is going 1 week without weighing and drinking 3/4 to 1 gallon of milk per day and eating 3 big meals a day consisting of 500- 600 calories each. I started the milk method about 1.5 weeks ago.

Squat:

45 x 5 x 2
95 x 5 x 1
115 x 3 x 1
145 x 2 x 1

180 x 5 x 3

Bench:

Power Clean:

This weight was very manageable but at the 4th rep I felt a bad pain about an inch and a half below my left wrist so I decided to stop. I'll keep it at 95 or 105 for now and keep focusing on wrist flexibility.
