Wednesday.
sn: up to 125#, failed twice due to wobbly arms; went up to 130#, same deal, went back to 115, then 125 where I failed due to wobbly arms
Pull is good, just messy at the top.
I'm going to do sets of singles at 120# until I can hit 15 sets easily.
cl: up to 175#, hard recovery.
Leg strength bleah.
fs: 185x4, 165x5

Slow and steady.

Nice call on the singles at 120lbs. Density style or done whenever you are ready?

Density in effect. I do singles every minute or so -- call it 15 in 20 minutes.

Meh. Tried for a quick snatch workout today, and had lots of fails at 120#, and lots of fails at 115# as well. Something's wrong.

Time to back away for a little bit? That or say F'it with a capital F and go out there and snatch 135!!!

Good advice, but I don't think so -- just upper body issues, not used to snatching, and still a bit weak with the sore shoulder

Saturday:
sn: Mills 20, 95#x1x5, 105x1x5, 110x1x5, 115, 120, F. Pulling fine, just nothing at the top.
cl: had nothing
fs: 185#x5, 165x6
rows
sled push x 8

I have worked my way up to 185 X 3 X 3 on the FS and it was a lot harder then I remembered. I am hitting 185 X 3 X 5 tomorrow and then moving on up in weight. All I know for sure was that the last set was a grind. I don't think I would enjoy 185 X 5 at all right now. Nice work.

Thanks! I think 5 is a good point to move up. The big issue with higher rep FSs is upper body, but I think the rowing/chins I've been working on have been helping. I like this workout routine -- will stick with it a bit.

Ironic after this comment -- moved up to 195# and hit major upper back rounding....

sn: Mills 20, same workout as last time, moved up a notch.
j: up to 155#, failed at 165#
fs: 195#x2, 175x3
Chins.
