Block/hang clean (mid-thigh) - 135lbs x 2 x 6; 1 min rest
Hang clean high pull - 145lbs x 3 x 4
Back squat - 275 x 3 x 3

A1. Ab wheel x 15; 20 sec rest
A2. Side bend x 12; 1 min rest

Toned down the back squat a little, I wanted to make sure I got proper full range of motion. The hang cleans and high pulls really kicked my ass!

Side bends were done with a 65lb dumbbell in each hand. No rest between wheel and bends.

Tuesday 2/9:

* Snatch - Max
* Clean & jerk - Max
* Back squat - 90% x 1 x 5

S-135lbs
C&J-205lbs
BS-305lbs

The snatch and clean and jerk max numbers are similar to a month ago, but still a PR of sorts. My form was FAR better for each. Though I still have a way to go, gains like that make for a brighter outlook.

The squat was very doable at 305. While my other numbers seem to be stalling out a little, I have been consistently adding the the back squat. I think that reflects more on how poor my max was before I started training it more than anything else.

Colin, looks like you are coming along well. You are from the UK right? Where are you training? Why are all the weights in Lbs?

I am from Sussex originally, but was living in Edinburgh for a while training at the weightlifting club there. I'm now living in Basel, Switzerland.

I also got into weightlifting through Crossfit, good to see someone else that found the same. Will you be competing this year? I am looking into doing the London Open in Autumn.

Friday Feb. 12:

Jumped rope and shadow boxed for a half hour, worked up a good sweat.

Saturday Feb. 13:

Went to karate, had a good class. Wrapped it up with 20 min of full contact sparring that left me pretty sore and in a puddle of sweat after 20 min. Took a kick right to the sternum, I mean walked right into! Oh well, that is why I practice.

Got back from a week in Phoenix last night. Had a good time, but it was five days of hard drinking and no exercise outside of hiking/walking.

I have been putting a new program together for myself, and didn't want to jump the gun on that, but REALLY had to get to the gym.

I put together a tabata with rowing, squats, pullups, pushups, and sit ups. I broke a good sweat, and got my heart beating. Felt good.

Training in the USA James, Western NY to be exact. I probably have not changed my time/location in my profile, so it would be a hard thing for someone to know exactly!

As far as competition goes, I am not averse to the idea, it is just a matter of finding one and making it work in my schedule. That is easier said than done...

Shoveled the driveway and the deck.

Starting a new program tomorrow, pretty much Gant's hybrid program.
