Eating the food has always been the problem. Just two days of that made me positively miserable.

Front squats - 57x3x3

Clean pulls up to 66x2x1
Back squat - 64x3x3

OAC attempt just because I felt like it. Wasn't able to get it from the bottom, but my strength in this seems to be somewhat better (or at least it hasn't degraded).

Warm-up

Snatch - up to 39kg, failed 43kg
Back squat - 66x3x3 (2kg PR for a set of 3 at full ROM, last 1RM was 70kg with less ROM, I think)

Been busy recently and it's just going to get worse. I need to get out and lift regardless.

Food consumption has been dropping off (and I might not have been eating enough in the first place).

Thumb started bleeding on the snatch deadlifts.

Thanks.

Sometimes I feel like I'm just being lazy with my current pace, but it's difficult to argue with PR's and no/minimal pain. My previous attempt at the Bulgarian cycle was giving me essentially the opposite, but of course, I probably wasn't ready for that kind of workload.

Gone for the day, but still did a few short sprints and muscle-ups. Modified my sprinting form a little... I'll have to get a timer if I want to see how it compares to the old. Might be no good.

Some sprinting drills recently, but hardly worth recording.

October 6, 2008

Cleans - 64x1x2
Back squat - 68x3x3(4?)

All of the previous should be PR matches.

Split jerks - 60x1x2
Front squat - 65x3x4

In the split jerks, I was specifically trying to eliminate press-out. Somewhat successful.
