I guess just practice. 185 feels like a good practice weight for me after I've warmed up w/ the 135.

Never maxed out on clean and jerks before. I want too someday...but I'm not rushing it.

As of right now, my programming is gettting a little off it seems. Been hopping around a lot lately...as you can probably tell by my log.

I feel as if I lost a little strength on my deadlift and press.

I've been doing more metcon based workouts...and I feel my cardio/respitory edurance has gone up...but I'm noticing a slight decline in strength.

I do feel a lot more flexible...I don't know where that came from???? Haven't been really stretching that much.. I can do some mean head-kicks which I haven't been able to do in a long time.

But I want to get back into a routine where I'm doing strength training in the morning...deads/press's/squats and metcon stuff in the afternoon/evening...maybe 3 times a week.

The other days I want to work on technique on o-lifts and get back into parkour...man I haven't been doing parkour at all really.

We'll see how it goes.

The reason I asked about cleans is due to the fact that heavy cleans should be done in sets no higher than triples, generally speaking. From my experience/research, if you are going to be doing higher reps then it should be a submaximal weight where you are mostly metconning and/or focusing on correcting form. Since we don't know what your PR is on the cleans then you could be anywhere along the spectrum :P
