Tough day day as I was expecting it to be since the first week of the 5's block was a hard adjustment. 3rd rep was a little high on the back squat but still at parallel. My depth was stiff today from all the sitting I did this weekend.

Was surprised that I could handle my body weight for a triple on hang snatch today. Solid session, just wish I had more time on my hands to do more sets and get more volume/skill work in.

Good day today, I could barely clean 115kg months ago, now I'm doing it for triples. I also forgot to note that I started taking creatine HCL this month and my bodyweight has gone up a pound or two already (177-178).

The bar humiliated me on back squat today. Good progress on split jerks though, my technique is improving, as I have to remember to be as violent as possible.

Tuesday, 2.14.12

Hang Snatch Below Knee - 182 x 2 (fail), 182 x 2 (Fail), 187lbs x 3
Snatch Pull - 3 x 3 w/ 225lbs
Snatch Grip DL - 337 x 3, dropped last two sets

Snatch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9hEk..._order&list=UL
SDL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnuRUm1SsxM

I was very impatient with the hang snatches today and paid for it since I failed on my first two sets. I figured that I wasn't respecting the weight I was lifting so I decided to go heavier for the last rep. I had nothing left in the tank after doing 337 on SDL.

Clean Pull - 3 x 3 w/ 310lbs
CGDL - 365 x 1 (Fail), 350 x 3, 330 x 3

272 clean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2-bt...ature=youtu.be

I should have had 3 reps with 272lbs today but almost made it happen. I'm liking the progress I'm making thus far, now I just need to keep it up. With the failed CGDL, I just had nothing left in me as I did struggle with the drops sets.

I finally snatched 200lbs today. I did set some PRs again today, but man was it rougher than normal. I ripped a huge callous on my hand after thursday's workout and my hands haven't recovered since that day and bled all over the bar today.
