your definately looking better than last time I saw you, except for the jerks... you need some practice with lighter jerk weights, focusing on getting in front of the bar, and getting more weight on the front foot. nice pulls though, both on snatch and clean.

Terrific work, Brian! I think I've seen you lift out there at Van Alstyne before (I have trained regularly at Spoon's over the years).

Just for kicks, you did did leave out one other set-rep scheme that is a favorite of Flemming's. If you train at Spoon's sometimes, you've probably seen up on the board:

70% x 6 (as a set; not singles)
80% x 4
85% x 3
90% x 2
95% x 1
85% x 3 x 5 sets

Even doing just one lift for the day, it's an obscene amount of work, and near-impossible for me to complete (I'm 38 years old) without completely bonking for the next week. That said, I know Travis slogs through this one periodically (I think for just one lift or the other in a given session).

No, Brian, no! The world's just not ready for that!
