PR for weight class, yes.

The bad news is that I've pretty much given up on weight loss -- even the reduced workouts raise my appetite sufficiently that I give up on reduced cals.

So I either need to go back to what worked for LG, or do RFL.

Saturday morning (uncertain as to whether there will be an afternoon session):
sn: up to 135#, 135#+0.5kg, 135#+1kg (62.2kg -- that would be a BW PR)
j: up to 160#
bs: up to 100kg, had nothing (!) beyond that.

Sunday:
sn: up to 135#, not as crisp as yesterday
c&j: up to 155#
bs alternated with 24kg kb jumps: 185#x3, 205x1, 225(f), 225 (see note), 185x2x3, 205x2

NOTE: I've been doing back and front squats rock bottom without a belt lately. I hit 225# easily with a belt, had nothing without a belt. Clearly, the belt is becoming a crutch.

I say use the belt.

I'd been pulling without it, but once I figure out this hip/low back thing I'll be doing every lower body barbell lift with a belt.

No reason not to if the weights go up and the injuries go down.

I go back and forth. If I drop down the weights and get my beltless and belted max back in line, I might go back to it. I figure there's some something I'm missing, either in strength or tightness or something, and squatting beltless might help correct it. Dunno.

Afternoon session:
sn: up to 130#, missed 135# front and back, but I wasn't feeling the groove of the form.
j: up to 155#.
(Jerks are bumming me out -- I had a max of 175# a couple of years ago, when I was much heavier. Snatch and cleans have gone up, but not the jerk).
fs: up to 205#, had more but 205# went up slowly.

The only time I squat or dl without a belt is if I am traveling and I forget it at home. I think it was Smitty with DieselCrew who would have his trainees put on the belt looser then normal and then put something in the belt and they would have to get set and do the reps without the ball or whatever it was dropping out. He only did that at lighter weights but it taught them how to stay tight throughout the entire lift.
