In lbs: Snatch: 95-115-135-145-150PR-155f x3 C&J: 155-185-195-200PR Press: 135-140PR-145f x3 Back Squat: 135-185-225-275f-265f Back squat pr is 270, just couldn't get there. On the 155# snatch attempts I just wasn't pulling myself under the bar. Mental block I guess... Greg- thanks for this programming! My snatch went up 55#, clean and jerk about 25#, back squat up #35, front squat about #15, all in 6 weeks. Very cool!

snatch is still 155 (split) still gun shy from shoulder injury clean and jerk- up to 240# thats a 15# pr!!! shoulder press 175# back squat- 285# i loath back squats, horrible pain in my knees with every rep i do, so i limit myself on them... 26yo/M/200# body weight. this was a great cycle for me, was only able to train about 50% because of my sholders, but progress was made. thanks greg, and everyone else on here!

Scott - Pretty typical, but really there is too much individual variation and too much variation among different training cycles for me to make any kind of intelligent comment on that.

M/25/76kg/178cm Sn 83kg (previous PR 87kg) Cln & Jrk 100kg (previous PR 111kg) Had issues with my bar, so wasn't in a good mental place to continue. I'm sure I could have gone to about 105 or 108kg cln & jrk. Thanks for the programming. I'm used to doing primarily the Sn and Cln & Jrk as part of training and not the assisted strength exercises. So will see how the next cycle goes.

M/38/68"/152lb Snatch 66kg PR by 1kg C&J 93kg PR by 1 kg Had attempted 1 kg more on each and missed. Ran out of time for the squat and press - will get those then carry on with the recovery this week. Weakest point for me right now is the squat. My clean is only 7kg away from my FS 1RM. Thanks, Greg.

Snatch- missed 80kg 3 times out front, bar was moving like a feather, but technique was off. 85 was my goal and I feel like I have the strength to do it, so I'll look for more than 85 at the end of the next cycle. Clean&Jerk- current max was 105, 1st attmept at 110 I didn't rack it, 2nd attempt was successful, so 5kg PR. Push Press- 77(PR) by 7kg. Back squat- did 140 then did a good job riding 150 down to the pins, which is where it stayed. 146 is current PR. Thanks for programming Greg.
