My son wanted to "get points" weightlifting, so I worked out with him. He does a variety of two hands anyhow work with a dumbbell (that is, just having fun getting the weight overhead). I did one hand snatches. Worked up to 70lbs each hand, no more.

My right arm is finally stronger than the left -- after an upper back injury three or so years ago, my right arm was terribly weak. Had to do 10lb db presses to get back.

And I may regret this later, but another walk in the woods, complete with a few hill sprints and son carries.

Regret was today.

sn: light and fast. 45x(floor + hang)x5
press: 85#x5x5. Easy.
bsq: 135#x5, 165x5, 195x5, 225x5, 245 -- one rep then fail.

My recovery abilities seem to suck. Big question: rest a couple of weeks then retry Starr method, or switch to 5/3/1? My inclination is to go 5/3/1. I want to keep up the conditioning work, and my weekly recovery seems not to be there.

Just pushups today. Legs feel beat up today.

Bradford Presses are brutal for me. What weight did you use?

50% of my working weight. Too light, as it turns out, but it's easier to bump it up than scale it back.

I'm working on an experiment. I'm structuring the remainder of my strength phase somewhat like this:

T/Thu/Sat:
Oly A/Oly B alternating
Upper body: T: volume (press 5x5), Thu: light, S: heavy (pp max 3)
(Saturday only): Squat 5/3/1
Assistance (Bradford press, Kroc rows, RDLs, GMs)

For Oly A/B, I'm doing something quasi Westsidish:

A: Work to max on some lift variant
B: Stay light and do 10 sets of 2, working on speed on some lift variant.

Could be a stupid idea, but might help me develop power and speed without taxing my recovery capabilities.
