Snatch - 125 lbs. PR w/good form; I snatched 130 once in '06, but it was a mess.
C&J - 192.5 PR
Front Squat - 260 PR, up 15 lbs from last week, 25 from last month.
Clean and Press for fun - 137.5 x1 This was weak, tiring out at this point.

Foam roll/stretching after, joint mobility and cold shower later.

After 2:30 hours of snatches I easily got under 115 LB's but couldn't stand up. Felt kind of funny sitting in the hole with all those people watching. either I was more tired than I thought after all the drilling or I need to do more overhead work. Probably both.

Great class today Greg.

PR in all three today. I gave myself two days off.

Snatch - before 67.5kg, today 77.5kg
C&J - before 92.5kg, today 95kg
Front Squat - before 110kg, today 115kg

I felt really good today but was very hesitant on getting under the bar with the C&J. The mind plays tricks on you sometimes. Can't wait for the Bulgarian approach. Not sure what it is but Greg has consistently given me gains.

Bad workout today. This proves that weightlifting is at least 50% mental.

Snatch: Matched PR of 105lbs, but so uncoordinated that I power snatched it. Almost fell on my a$$ several times on lower weights.

C&J: My PR is 140 lbs., but I couldn't even clean 135 today. Pull was strong, but couldn't get a good catch.

Front Squat: 175 lbs. (pr). These felt pretty good, which shows my strength isn't the issue.

I need to work on the catch.
