If you are just getting back into it you have to expect that you won't be back at full strength yet.

Are you a "weak squatter" or temporarily de-conditioned?

thank you guys for the advice on squating first.I did front squats 10x3 and the weight felt to light so I added 10lbs and it was ok then I did 3 position snatches but kept the weight light (68% of my old 1rm) then did sigles on clean&jerks working up to 80% of My old 1rm then doing 3 sigles with that.friday Ill see how it goes with back squats.
