Solid for someone lifting for 3 months...

You should post you workouts in your log, track squats, pulls, presses and all

Thanks. Seems like too much work to post all of my workouts. I keep a log in excel of my daily workouts but wanted to use this to track my results at the end of each cycle to chart my overall progress.

End of Leg Block 2:

Back Squat: 365(pr)
Snatch: 215(pr)
C&J: 255(pr)
Push Press: 245 (pr)

Notes:

-Legs felt strong so pushed squats 15-20 lbs above prescribed weights during week 3. May have been a mistake as legs didn't feel fully recovered on final max-out day (almost got pinned on last few snatches), but hopefully it will pay dividends in the long run.

-Jumped from 365 to 375 on last squat and barely missed - feel like I could have had 370 if I tried it. Chomping at the bit to begin the next cycle and push the lifts heavy after focusing on squats the last 8 weeks.

12 Week Cycle, Week 10, Wednesday

C&J - 245, 205 1x5
Sn - 230 (pr), 165 1x5
Paused Back Squat - 255 3x3

Notes:

-First time C&Jing before SN, but for some reason felt weak - perhaps not enough warm up. Jerks in particular felt very very heavy. Jumped from 245 to 265 (my pr), cleaned it but missed the jerk badly. Dropped to 205 and actually fell on my ass on the second clean. Felt like crap at this point and almost called it a day but pushed through the rest of the workout. Not sure how I hit the pr snatch - didn't feel strong in the pull but I think I may have been compensating by dropping like an anchor and hitting the catch at rock bottom. Attempted to snatch 235 but clarked it (first ever clark).

12 Week Cycle, Week 11, Wed.

Sn - 225, 235 (x)
C&J - 270, 215 1x5
Sn - 185 1x3
Paused BS - 275 3x3

Notes:

-Was really rushed for time so sped through the workout in less than an hr (usually takes around 1.5 hrs). No warmup with the bar, took very very short breaks and started with snatches at 135 (forgot I was supposed to start with C&J per the program).

-Snatched up to 225 and had the best save of my life, basically on my tippy toes at the catch position and took around 30 seconds to gradually move weight back to heels and then stand. Tried 235 but missed pretty badly (again). It looks like I will not be able to hit this weight until I get my leg strength higher. I will still try.

-Surprisingly was able to hit the 270 pr C&J that I missed a number of times in previous sessions. Stopped at 270 because I didn't want to miss 275 and get "stuck" at that number. This is the second time I have pr-ed during a session which I thought would not go well. A good reminder that I should not get discouraged or freak out if the lifting circumstances/conditions are not ideal. Can't use obstacles or inconveniences as excuses or psychological deterrents. Just attack the fucking weight with the expectation that I will get it above head.
