2009.12.29
Clean+Jerk: 3x40, 3x60, 2x70, 2x2x85, (1+f)x85
Clean Pull: 4x100, 3x110, 3x3x120
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x95, 3x110, 3x2x125

Notes:

1 - Cleans were easy, and jerks felt good as well. Realized that by thinking of the dip and drive of the jerk as a front squat (which I am now very well acquainted with), the positioning was a lot more precise. The last one was forward though, and hurt a bit, so I dropped it.

2 - Clean pulls felt light.

3 - Front squats did not. I think this is the first time I've gotten my max on a lift heavy enough that the subsequent increase in percentage loading just feels... unpleasant. Not in a painful way, just in a "man, that's really hard" way. Time to man up. I've done more than this before. Just not at the end of a full workout.

Nice press work. When will you be recording your lifts?

I've heard the front squat tip before. You just have to make sure to not shove your elbows up too much--I was jerking essentially from the rack position and it was no good.

2010.01.05
Snatch: 4x45, 3x55, 3x64, 2x73, 77, 84(f), 2x1x84
Clean+Jerk: 3x59, 2x70, 2x82, 93, 100, 107, 114, 120(f), 120
Back Squat: 5x91, 4x109, 3x127, 2x145, 155, 3x1x164

Notes:

1 - Very very nice day of lifting...

2 - Shoulder is officially recovered! 120kg C+J felt easy and zero pain the whole way. I was a little sloppy on the first clean attempt at 120, but that's all. The weight was light, just have to hammer in technique.

3 - Snatches and BS also a good day, with two singles at 93% snatch, and three easy singles at 90% BS.

Great lifting. Don't stop the prehab/rehab on the shoulder.

Absolutely not. Didn't stop to do it last night, but I think rehab work is just about all I'm doing tonight. And I went and iced as soon as I got home just in case.

2010.01.07
Snatch: 4x45, 3x55, 3x63, 2x72, 2x1(f2)x77, 2x77
Clean+Jerk: 3x60, 2x72, 2x85, 1x96(f2), 2x2x102
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x95, 3x110, 2x3x130, 3x2(f3)x130

Notes:

1 - Snatches didn't feel terrible, but showed my lack of consistency. A double at 77 is actually a PR.

2 - Clean and jerks were fairly good, my only miss was just because my head wasn't in it and I clarked the clean. Still not getting my front foot out on heavy weight jerks though.

3 - Front squats are a sad, tiring exercise. Supposed to go for 5x3x130, but was just way too tired by the third rep on the last few sets. No air left, and just got squished.

How's your diet and sleep?

Well... I'm spending this week in Korea for my college roommate's wedding...

Back when I was State-side my sleep was great and my diet was getting better. Hopefully it will be completely reigned in after I get back. It is surprising how much effort it took to put the quantity side of my diet back in check after spending two months eating whatever I wanted because of holidays/squat cycle.

I hear you about the quantity. Sometimes I just can't go under 4,000 calories.

Returned from Korea!

2010.01.19
Snatch: 3x45, 3x55, 2x63, 3x3x68
Back Squat: 5x90, 4x110, 3x125, 5x145, 5x150, 5x155, 5x160, 5x165
BN Pull Ups: 2x6, 2x5, 4
Jerk Recoveries: 4x135#, 3x225#, 3x255#, 2x275#(f3), 3x275#
Standing DB Press (each hand): 6x35#, 3x5x45#
V-Sits: 3x10
Decline Planks: 30s@45#, 30s@70# (crappy), 15s@70# (good until the bench slipped out from under my feet)

Notes:

1 - So... new coach likes the accessory and support exercises. They're actually being prescribed... so I can't really skimp on them anymore (which is probably a good thing for me). Also need to improve my time efficiency getting through the workouts so they don't take in excess of 3hrs.

2 - Holy crap back squats! Supposed to do 5x5, moving up if I made the set. Did not think I was actually going to make it that high! That's 90% for a set of 5.

3 - Pull ups kinda sucked. Supposed to do 4x6, but I did an extra set because I couldn't get all the reps in the previous ones. Will discuss going back to pull downs to focus on lat development before doing these.

4 - Welcome back to jerk recoveries/supports, remembering why I used to do so many of these. Slightly overloaded my jerk, but should be able to do more.

5 - DB presses probably really good for me.

6 - V-sits done with straight arms in front of face to make them doable. This are probably also really good for me, despite how miserable they are. (Or because of that.)

7 - Lastly, decline planks are difficult. Not because I can't do them, but because I can't find anything stable to put my feet on. I'll work on that.
