1/12

Deadlift: 205 x 5, 235 x 5, 270 x 5, w/fat gripz 135 x 4 x 10
Abs
Curls

weight was down to 147, not sure why it's so low I've been eating above maintenance for a few days now and increasing to gain some pounds. Pisses me off.

205 felt like trying to deadlift 350 so you can imagine what 270 felt like.

Any of you guys ever feel like just doing your own thing in the gym and getting away from the mainstream programming for a while? Thats how i feel right now.

I got access to a 24 hour gym with bumpers, platforms, regular equipment, a place to push prowl, etc. and for a while now I've really felt like dumping the 531 programing and just hitting sets and reps by feel.

Now that I can.. I was just thinking of doing nothing but Snatches, Clean&jerk, and the other lifts that I have goals set for on days that I feel like lifting, resting when i feel like lifting, going heavy when I feel like it which is often and just having fun n the gym.

I know how you feel. I did that for the last couple of months with a linear progression set up. Have fun while you can.

I'm a little tired, mainly from working all the time and as typical not having enough time to eat much. This is what kills my progress more than anything else.

Snatch: worked up to 85 x 5 x 2 + OHS mixed in
Bench: 165 x 8 x 3
BB Rows: 135 x 10, 155 x 8, 165 x 8 x 3

I'm gonna gradually work back into doing Snatches and Clean&Jerk on the same day and just working one main lift on each of those days plus 1-2 assistance . Sets and reps I'm leaving to feel so I can progress as I like to. The main idea behind this is just having fun in the gym with a somewhat structured template.

My main focus is to get through the rest of the PD application process right now.. I passed the exams this week and next week I go before an oral board.

1/24

Late night workout

Clean&Press: 95 x 3, 3, 3, 115 x 2, 2, 2, 125 x 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 115 x 1 + 7 presses
Squat: 135 x 5, 175 x 3, 205 x 3, 225 x 1, 185 x 3, 3
Pullups: BW x 20, BW+25# x 5 x 3

Only thing that didn't feel good today were the squats and my strength has been going down on these hence why I stopped where I did.

I like the clean and press. It's hard, uses the whole body, and it's fun.

Snatch: 65 x 2, 2, 2, 75 x 2, 2, 85 x 2, 2, 100 x 5 x 2
Clean&Jerk: 100 x 3, 3, 115 x 1+2, 1+2, 1+2, 1+2, 1+2
Dips: 15, 12, 12
Curls: 65 x 3 x 8

All of a sudden I feel the Oly lifting bug bitting me again now that I have a place to train 24/7

Snatch: worked with 65 and 75# just doing technique work, did a shit ton of doubles from the ground and hang pos.

Bench: 175 x 5 x 3, 185 x 3, 3, 3
BB Row: 175 x 6 x 6
arms

Yea, I'm convinced. I need to be on some type of Oly program since that's what I enjoy. I put together something that focus heavily on SN and C&J, some C&P and lots of squating. We'll see how it goes.
