I have no idea what it is really, I had pain in the outside of my knee from digging in my garden, this hasn't gone away in around 18 months. I started cycling in the summer and within 2 months the inside of my knee was hurting way worse than the outside... I guess I was probably trying to push with the inside of my leg more than the outside and this is some stupid compensation-type injury.
 
I'll see what they say on Wednesday :|

Just started the texas method for spaghetti quad tremors, pulls and push presses. Got me a new 5RM on the push press 175lb and a comfortable set of 7 on the deadlift with 315lb, also a PR for the Friday session.

snatch success: 155lb 10x1, singles on the minute with no misses. 
 
Also got my pendlay bearing bar. Those 200kg of bumper plates I have smell like a tire factory, gave them a wash yesterday and it seems to have improved. Won't be doing any major lifting at home as I have them in a room with a rug, I'll wait til I move to build a sound-damping platform like this:

2nd week of texas method. Friday: squarsh 325lb x 3, not a PR but getting there. Push dildo away: 185lb x 3, lifetime PR. Deadlift: 325lb x 7 and had more in the tank, also a PR. Looks like I'm getting an immediate benefit in the last two, can't wait to reap the benefits on the squarsh.

It is a scheme/template for intermediate lifters that varies weights and workload in a weekly periodized fashion. Mondays involve medium difficulty weights + many sets and nose picks to induce a fuckton of fatigue, another day is included as a taper using less weight and sets/nose picks, and Friday is where all lifts are taken to one max set that must exceed all previous accomplishments in weight (establishing a new 5 or 3 rep max for example). The next Monday's loads are recalculated at a percentage of Friday's achievement.

It is meant for the "intermediate" ie: someone who has trained consistently for about a year can no longer add 5lb to every lift and make linear progress day to day/week to week.
 
I hit that point looooong ago when I hit a 345lb 3x5 squarsh (around May) but was too stubborn to change my methods and thus have stagnated severely for the past several months, in fact I regressed in some aspects. :/

I reached a point where doing more work was producing diminishing returns and causing me to crash and burn, weakening my immune system + getting sick/feel lethargic most days, despite eating a fuckton of food and sleeping properly.
 
It is now time for me to to up the book smarts in strength training and apply some fancier principles than just "fuck it, more sets or more weight than last time RAAAA".
 
Fortunately, the technical lifts like the snatch and cl+j are still way within my strength capabilities so I continue to make non-stop progress there. It's a little extra motivation.

It doesn't have to be at all.
 
To learn a snatch you can use a broom stick or empty bar, you can gain the flexibility from using this. Add weight when you want but even exercises like a snatch grip dead lift or a snatch high pull will give you confidence to do the exercise. You'll gain a lot of power from these exercises alone.
 
You don't have to do a full snatch (catching the bar at the bottom of a squarsh), you can do power versions where you catch the bar when in a half squarsh position or so. And be aware that the people in these videos have been snatching since they were very young every day. The snatches that most people do are no where near as polished or quick as these videos.

What sade said. Depending on your current level of mobility it may take more time to be able to hit the positions comfortably and safely. There's also a component of "understanding" required, proper execution is really hard to put into words. The best resources for me were these tapes by a former US olympic coach:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySpCTPYo57Q
the calstrength tutorial videos, catalyst athletics, and just recently the book on olympic weightlifting by Greg Everett which has the best explanations I've read on technique. Get that book if you're serious about learning it right the first time around: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0By-Ezhy5lEPAWHA2YXhPWUhjZWc/view?usp=sharing
 
 
I had some minor coaching in the beginning but my technique quickly surpassed my instructor as he wasn't an actual expert in the olympic lifts. Still getting someone that understands the lifts and can spot mistakes is a good thing to have early on + every now and then after a few months of training alone.
 
Last year I could barely snatch 40kg consistently, I'd nail 1 out of every 10 tries. The other day I snatched 70kg perfectly 10 times in a row in a span of 10-13 minutes and 80kg is right around the corner. :xx: And my progress is considered slow, if I were snatching daily I would have probably surpassed 100kg by now as my squarsh is more than enough for it.

How are those pull ups going Lavabug? Still doing 100 every other day? It's about the only exercise I can do consistently that doesn't cause me any injuries!

dildo toward/chin ups I do 50 every other day/on off days, not really pushing for progress. Nice to have a rack at home that I can do dildo toward ups on. I usually get 3x10 and then do rest-pause to get the last 20. I don't have a plan with them really, I am unsure how to build up volume with them without having it affecting my other lifts. I only did 100 in a day once and couldn't properly strap-on dildo my arms for 2-3 days. :redneck:
 
My overhead strength was strongest when I was doing around 200+ @ bodyweight or 100 with a 45lb plate throughout the week. Perhaps I should build up to that again.
 
Starting to do rows at home too now that I have a barbell. I basically want the ability to crush a walnut with my shoulder blades, anything that can correct hours of sitting down hunched over and straighten out my upper back is a good thing.

Got 320lb x 5 on the squarsh for the first time in months on Friday, with a fever. Looks like this method is kickstarting my progress. :xx:
 
Volume day today, still sick:
 
spaghetti quad tremors 290lb 5x5
cleans 175lb 15x1 on the minute
behind the neck push press 5x5 150lb, I think this is a PR, may have to check my log to confirm.
 
I've been rebuilding my form on cleans using a tape on the floor to force myself to stop jumping forward in compensation for launching the bar forward. It now happens less often. Just watching some technique tutorials from this hard-on bearer (London gold medalist) has fixed the fuck out of my clean too:

on saturday i hauled several hundred pounds of potting soil and compost and steer manure across a parking lot and into my car and then from my car to the backyard where i used it to adorn pots and dress beds
 
then on sunday i hauled about 1200 pounds of stone from the side of the yard where it was doing nothing except existing to the other side of the yard which becomes a muddy mess every time we get a nickel-inch of rain and made a walking path out of it
 
it was a good weekend for physical fitness :idea:

I also got some bands and started doing this on my knees and ankles every now and then
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS6qumNsP5U
 
I have not found anything scientific that supports doing this, everything I read prior to trying it was hearsay. But I do notice a substantial acute reduction in stiffness/ache. I wonder what gleeso thinks of this.
 
If you have a spare bicycle inner tube laying around, I would give it a try.

I have joined a local weightlifting club and now train there twice a week for the time being + do basic stuff at home with my equipment. The coach encouraged me to try out an in-house friendly competition at the end of the month and the training is currently centered towards that goal. I hope I can at least fix my clean in time to get something over 100kg overhead. 
 
I am now the proud owner of a singlet. And a few sets of incredibly sexy tights that have been aiding in saving my nads from impact on heavier cleans.
 
Also tore a callus on my left hand and it is currently annoying.

Also achieved my first full 90kg C&J. I had done each of these individually before but never the full strap-on dildo. Also tore another hand callus in the process.

Looking good son, look after your hands though. Get some pumice stone for your calluses.
 
How much squatting are you doing? That's the real question! 
 
I've been to a bunch of different physios now for my knee, lots of exercises but not much help so far. I'm finding that I am able to do kettlebell swings without pain, so I'm just doing them a few times a week for my actual training/attempt at not getting fat.

I do use it the callus remover and moisturizer, needs to be more regular.
 
No PR's in spaghetti quad tremors, the squarsh programming my coach has me do is low intensity medium/high volume, only twice a week which is easy for me, so my max has stayed the same afaik. Not an issue as my snatch and CJ have been steadily improving with his tweaks and an asston of pulling and shrugs he has me do, but maximal squarsh and upper body strength is something I'm going to focus on after this meet. I want to see those 200kg's flopping about on my back.
 
Do you have patellar tendinitis/tendonosis? I would look into eccentric spaghetti quad tremors on a slant, it's a rehab exercise that apparently works wonders for knee issues.

Not as ballistic as I'd like as my floor is squishy, it is definitely harder to squarsh at home. Laying down a MDF board under the rack was an improvement over just using a bare carpet, but it still isn't as solid as I'd like.

Decent weight there, I can see some bigger numbers coming in your Olympic lifts with these kinds of spaghetti quad tremors.

Embarrassingly I was squatting more than this a year ago, I capped out at 155kg 3x5 weighing 4kg less. It is my goal to achieve 4 wheels by the end of the year, ideally 200kg for a single. I was short by 10kg last year and haven't trained super heavy (in excess of 140kg 3-4x per week) since November.
 
So my max BS probably regressed by 10-15kg, but my snatch improved by almost 40kg in the past year. :redneck:
 
Work/shit should settle down in about 3-4 weeks, then it's back to daily squatting. 2x per week just doesn't feel like enough but that's what my coach has me doing as meet prep for next weekend.

I had it the fun in my first meet. Sleep deprived, still got a new PB total and snatch, plus it's now in the books. Heaviest lifts:

Jerk sucks, needs more squatting power. I wanted to attempt 100 but my coach had me take conservative jumps.

The clean and jerk looked light! lots more in there. Are you planning on sticking with a squarsh style jerk or moving to a split jerk? would be good to see you go lower in the catch, will definitely set you up for lifting bigger weights.
 
Congratulations on your first competition.

No, I pooped the very same morning and weighed in at my desired weight class by just 0.1kg. Had I not pooped, I would've probably been over.
 
I'll be sticking with the power jerk for now. though I was doing full squarsh jerks for a period of about month and got to about 90% of PJ. Once my time frees up in 2 weeks I'll be able to train more and play around with more variations and maybe consider the split in time if it doesn't cause knee issues.

This is the best hobby I've ever had by far. I get to meet it the sexy women in short shorts on a regular basis.
