Default Testing Results

As I prepared for my mass gain testing I had a sudden realization. I have only ever squat snatched 1 time and probably only squat cleaned 3 times.

Here is where I ended up.

Lift, Old PR, New PR
SN, 75, 85
CLN, 115, 145 (75% BW)
Press, 115, 120

I also tested bench at the end
BN, 185, 200

Today wasn't a stellar day as I have had 4 hours sleep the last 3 nights and my diet hasn't been exactly on target. I am pleased at where I ended up I just wanted to do more. I power snatched 95 and power cleaned 155 both easily. Unfortunately I didn't feel like I had the correct form to push any more today. I can't wait to start the strength cycle with testing each week. I feel like my limiting factor today was definitely technique (or more specifically the lack there of).

nice work. those are some pretty good numbers. your sn and cln will go way up next time i bet simply because you'lll be more accustomed to the movement (and of course be stronger).

Thanks for the nice words and encouragement.

FYI unfortunately the weights were in LB's. I am really looking forward to starting the strength cycle in the AM.
