PRs at low body weight, improved body comp, over pulling 145.... there are worse things to happen to your training.

Indeed. Weight loss + daily training has been a good thing.

Tweaked something in my traps.
Did snatch pulls and clean pulls from the blocks (triples with ascending weights until bar speed/height declined)
Legs are beat, but tried to squat up to max, couldn't manage anything decent.

Reminds me of DJ's post V-Diet interview where he noticed that his lifts were much smoother post weight loss.

It's possible that's how it worked. I also think that, at higher %BF, I just don't gain much muscle. So when I cut way back, and went to daily training, I have more functional lean mass than I had when I was 20# heavier. There's also something magic about the LG protocol, of cramming your face immediately PWO and not eating much at other times.

Went climbing Sunday evening. Hands and back are shot.

Switching back to fat loss.

Need to do more low volume snatch and clean and jerk sessions; was a total klutz yesterday:
sn: up to 130#
sn pulls from blocks
cl pulls from blocks
sq: up to 245x2, 225x3 (did a long long IF, feeling the lack of food)
press: up to 105#x2, 95x4, 85x4
hip thrusts
cl dls.

Confused about my training. Double birthdays, ate cake at work today, so went to workout.

c&j: up to 165#, missed j on 175#, cleaned 185#
pp: 135#x3x2
bs: up to 245#

Good stuff on the cleans and getting 145 overhead. It seems like you don't have much trouble getting under the bar, but the catch?

Nice work all the way around.
