Been a while since I had any PR's, but they seem to be showing up all at once now:
 
Easy 100kg clean, on the first try. Finally. 
 
135kg 3x10 clean pulls. I have done 150kg conventional deadlifts for 1x10, but I've never done this many sets of any pulls from the floor with 300lbs.
 
80kg 3x5 push press behind the neck.
 
50kg standing behind the neck presses, pretty sure I've never done that.
 
Casually snatched for the first time in over 6 weeks and got a trivially easy 85kg. I think I'm about due for 100kg in the coming 2-3 weeks.

Some 145kg spaghetti quad tremors were also performed prior for 3x5. Finally regained 90% of my squarsh strength.
 
As were some 80kg jerk overhead spaghetti quad tremors and 105kg rack jerk supports. :ba:

Joined it the new gym with a viking theme/medieval weaponry decor + tons of 80's metal played regularly, quite neat.

Just began a new periodized training cycle and already got a new PR on the first day. Behind the neck push press 72kg x 10, 2kg above previous best in this rep range.

Also did 14 pullups at 98kg/216lb ish bodyweight, gonna see if I can finally get to 20+.

As in periodized changes in volume and intensity. For an armchair explanation, skip to linear periodization:
https://breakingmuscle.com/learn/a-simp ... h-training

So a few weeks of sets of 10 nose picks until I basically cannot increase the weight (to increase work capacity), then 5's (to develop general strength), then 3's (near maximal effort) and a taper where I go full retard with the weights at the end, as in a competition scenario.

In a cyclic fashion, seems to produce neato long-term results.

It's the choice of words in the sports science community apparently, where other perversions of the English language roam free. Many an "irregardless" have been uttered by my coach who has a phd in this stuff.

I don't know what that is, assuming it's a high school diploma equivalent or less.

After engaging with undergraduates for the past few years and assessing their reasoning skills (and not strictly quantitative ones), it's safe to say we are fucked as a species, nevermind the poor math skills. From a humanities perspective, the sexy leopard elevator I'm dating works as a librarian and has done proofreading of term papers for students as a favor. She wonders how the hell they got into college.

I would say we are doing a good job of raising a generation that can't write/read, think for themselves and synthesize ideas, do basic trigonometry or understand compound interest. Good recipe for becoming indebted and poor for the rest of their lives and for getting ferret-wearing shitgibbons voted into office.

My "light" day spaghetti quad tremors consisted of 120kg for 3x10. Still felt like a kick in the nads.

Really hoping I can hit 135kg x 10 again on Monday and at least 140kg x 10 on the following one.

300lbs x 10 spaghetti quad tremors once again splendid mate of mine, take my hand as we cross this meadow

140kg/309lbs is scheduled for next week FUCK IT IN THE FACE

Also achieved a 75kg/165lb x 9 push press behind the neck PB

Sadly only matched my pullups from last week.

Also a new finding: the glute ham raise is the best device/contraption ever since the invention squarsh rack, it has magical therapeutic properties and my knees feel great after doing them.

hectic schedule means a somewhat inconsistent routine, but i still try to run at least once or twice a week and do body weight exercises and jiu-jitsu. i've found if i go about a week without any exercise i start to get anxious and fidgety.

I have kickstarted some slow but steady progress by picking a challenging weight and adding 1 extra set per week, starting with 3 sets then increasing the weight after I reach 5 successful sets, starting over with 3 sets at the new weight. Identical progression to that of the Russian squarsh routine volume phase, using it for most of the major strength exercises I do. Mostly upper body progress, but spaghetti quad tremors are coming around fast again.

I also got 8x1 easy clean and jerks at 92kg which is the first time I've put 200lbs+ overhead that many times in the same training session and I have plenty of room for more.

I also managed to do 10 pullups with an extra 40lb (and my weight is around 215lb now) recently, quite accidentally as I miscalculated the weights of the chains I was using.

Started a deload period. Light weights and low volume this week. Trying to rebuild/fix my snatch with a sequence of physiotherapy exercises to relearn how to activate my scapular muscles correctly to fix this imbalance I've been having over the past few months:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FS_c8_QRpM4

Sucks to not lift as heavy as I can right now, but it's probably the best for me in the long run.
