Problem one is with your priorities!
They should be:
1) Lift heavier than ever.
2) Get HYOOOOGE (and strong) lifter muscles!
3) Lift still more.

Starting Strength helped your press? Can you share a little? It's a worthy read? Beyond the general Oly, I think press is the best. Of course, it's old school oly.

You did 135/155/175/185and195 but converted to close kg equivalents, right? Hmmm. Maybe that's not a bad idea if it makes reviewing the log easier.

EDIT below

Ok, so I took your idea and put it in my log. I also added the "total squattage" stat, which is total weight in all sets.
Thus we see that Thursday's
135x5/135x5/135x5/185x5/185x5 totals at
3875lbs/1761kg
while never going more than 185.

Saturday I did heavier weights
135x5/155x4/185x3/205x2/215x1 but only totaled
2475lb/1125kg.

This may be useful in looking at training volume in the future. Since I usually stick to 5 reps or less it may maintain some utility. It might not.

Also, your total squattage is 4225lbs, higher than my two listed days (but mine were Front Squats). But you missed making a true 5x5. So you did a lot of work, but missed on the last set. As I understand the 5x5, the first 3 are often used as warm up and the last two are the work sets. So maybe lighter work is called for in your earlier sets so you can make the 5x195, which is a good hard fifth set, by the way. If that was your inention.
Also, excel is awesome for playing with these numbers.
See, aren't you glad you have this log so I can analyze this for you?

Your body can't differentiate between stressors. Stress is like water from hundreds of taps flowing into a bathtub. Financial stress, relationships, health, and training stress are all different taps. When all the other taps are flowing full blast, turn down the training tap a little bit so your tub doesn't overflow.

So do you think you will lift in the meet Sunday?
I am definitely over 77 now. I had a few bad days of eating from Sat to Yesterday, but am back on the good train now. I think I will wrry less about staying 77 and just eat and lift. I don't want to get fat, or do the bulk then cut routine, but a little more healthy food for me will be ok, esp if I get on the 4 day split ala Jimmy.
Are you eating better yet, Yoon?
We will jump weekly at LBH until you slap the ceiling with a 15k plate in your other hand.
