I agree, you ohp is looking very good. Is your olympic lifting work having some carry over to your overhead pressing? Maybe it's time I learn how to snatch and jerk...

Thanks guys!

Andy, I've been doing 6x2 snatch and 5x3 cleans (only jerking the last rep) with 95-135lbs twice a week and I do think this has helped a lot with my OHP. I think that not all of is just progress in strength but that by doing light olympic lifts I've learn to get into a better and tighter position for OHP.

Bench Press

255lbs, 10lbs PR

265lbs, 20lbs PR!

275lbs (x) (failed attempt PR?)



if I add up my best lift in all three I can finally say that I broke the 1000lbs mark! Only by ten pounds but I did it! 1100lbs, here I come!

I hurt my left foot more than a month ago and spent a month without training but I'm back! I'm trying to ease my way into training since my foot still hurts just a little, nothing big. I'm training one lift per day, everyday.

Tuesday
Squats
2x5 185lbs
2x5 225lbs
1x1 245lbs (here it kind of hurt so that's when I decided to go back down)
2x5 225lbs
2x5 185lbs

Wednesday
Bench Press
3x5 205lbs

Friday
Deadlift
1x5 315lbs

Saturday
Overhead Press
3x5 135lbs

My squat suffered the most. On the plus side my bench and overhead press feel stronger for some reason.

Don't worry Kyle, my precious contribution to the club didn't suffer with this tragedy. BTW I caught Bryan checking my calves out today in front of Sydra... dude has no shame.

Calves worth being unfaithful for.

I've been trying to come up with a new nickname calves related but so far I got nothing. Anyone?

Deadlifts
1x5 325lbs



This is the first time since february that I feel good pulling. Nothing hurt, it felt like I was ripping it off the ground really fast and I think my form was good.

As always feel free to comment.

you look squirmy like your feet were not set right, lost position during the pull, or lost balance. just something i noticed

Thanks, I didn't notice that at first but you are right. Every time I finish a rep I reposition myself with a wider stand. I think it is just probably due to the fact that it has been a while since I deadlifted.

Looked like it felt really strong and easy.  I have the same issue repositioning myself between reps when I deadlift, especially if it's been a while.  So much about my strength off the floor depends on my position, and for some reason it always takes me a while to find it again after a leave of absence.

Your depth was good and consistent on this session today, Nel. Good to see you getting back into things.
