Monday:
sn: up to 130#
c&j: up to 145#, nothing with 155# (!)
bs: 205#x2, 225x2, 235(f) (!!), 205x2x2

Beltless again.

Feeling like crap today, but had plenty of strength for the snatches; just off on technique at the heavier weights.

Tuesday:
sn: up to 130#, 135#, 135#+ 1.2kg, 135#+1.8kg. Tried at 140# but no juice left.
My microloading weights are 260-280g each.
That's a PR for weight class
c&j: up to 150#
fs: up to 215#, no juice for 100kg.

Wednesday.
Very tired.
sn: up to 135#, failed x2 on 130# but knew where the form issue was, and corrected. 135# came up fine despite being tired as hell, 140# was narrowly missed
c&j: Up to 160#
bs: up to 235# (belted for 225# and 235#)

Thursday. IT band hurting.
sn: up to 135#, narrow miss again on 140# -- this too shall fall.
c&j: up to 150#, failed at 160#
fs: up to 230# (belted for 220# and 230#)

So... WTF with my front squat and my back squat being essentially equal? (Of course, as DVS would say, the proper ratio for FS and BS is 150% of current).

I'm delaying on the weight loss because the daily lifting is going so well, but I'm also feeling chunky. Dunno what to do -- would appreciate objective feedback. Weight isn't out of control (188.2# now, could get it quickly under 85kg), but I'm drifting from lean but not ripped (12%ish) to not quite lean (13-13.5%).

So decided to go for weight loss. With the amount of eating I'm doing, I'll be up another couple of pounds quickly, which is that much more to lose.

Back to LG + RPT 2x/week with medium weightlifting (work to easy max) 2x/week.

Today:
sn: up to 125#, all uncoordinated for 130#.
j: up to 155#
bs: up to 245#x2, 225x3
press: up to 105#x3, 95#x4, 85#x4
3 sets of chins

It is tough when you start to feel chunky.

In 5 1/2 weeks, I gained 6-7#s (assuming my weight on 7/20 of 180 was an anomaly due to dehydration and glycogen depletion). That's crazy. I wasn't trying to gain weight, just eat for recovery.

It happens. Do you estimate that about half of it is muscle and half is fat?

The first 4# were 3/4 muscle; the last 2-3 probably 1/2 and 1/2. The first bit of weight gain was rebound.

More climbing today with my daughter. Got a couple V1 bouldering problems, still no hand/grip endurance for more extended work. Fun to do something where I'm so far behind my daughter.
