Kept it short tonight. Still feeling like pre-ill.  Went well.  Jerks were under-powered tonight, though the launch from the shoulders was good, just not strong.  I might have cut the 315 squat a smidge high, but bottomed out the 285 double to make up for it.

Snatch grip DL (straps)
260 3x2 sets

Snatches were an orgy of dead-ugly.  Good news is I'm pulling too far back, bad news is that I'm somehow doing it without finishing the second pull.  Back to form work at a lower weight.

Went close grip on presses to save my shoulders a bit.  Index finger on the smooth part of the bar.  I'm nearly as strong with that grip as my conventional grip.

Had to concentrate hard to keep my chest up and butt back on FS today.  Soon it will be habit, since it makes FS so much easier.

Didn't like the 1st 300 squat - only went parallel - so I did another one deeper. Not too hard, surprisingly, it being the 5th day in a row squatting.

Just about doubled the reps on the pullups. Taking my grip wider - I need some lats.

Well, I'm PR'ing for bodyweight (still 175) but I felt like shite today.  Body just would not dip on the heaviest jerks, which basically turned them into push-presses.  Felt like I was lifting in a fog - might've been the gym I was in; didn't train at home today.  More likely I'm entering the adjustment period for adapting to daily lifting. No bouncy weights and no dropping.

295x1
305x1 (f##king hurt)
285x2

All done.

Snatches are getting better.  Feet are coming off the floor after the second pull, but I'm still not leaning back enough on the second pull.  Puts the bar out in front - I actually jumped forward a few inches on the heavier ones.

Squats were a bit frustrating, because I feel much stronger than I can display.  I had to slow down halfway up on the 305 due to shooting pains on the outside of the knee joints and then stand it the rest of the way up.  It was no problem to do so, but it was a bit discouraging.  285 was a solid double - plenty of torque to spare.

called it a day.  Good one, too.  Wasn't going for it on CJs today. Last max on FS was 280 - that 275 was slow, but I took it deeper than usual and it wasn't as hard as it might have been.  Going to keep working on that til I can  bounce out of the hole.

Overhead squats

135x3
155x2,1 (totally went to crap there)

Low clean pulls
235 3x3

Couldn't hold my balance on the OHPs.  Low clean pulls felt good, but I'm pulling with my back too horizontal.  tried harder to keep position on the last set and it went a little better.  I think I could clean this weight, though standing up with it after the clean might be "interesting."

Incline Bench
135x3

205 3x2 sets

Split jerks were horrible.  they'll get better with practice, but they were horrible.

No Squats today.  I'm having a temporary body-parts swap where my left knee has decided to become an asshole and not do it's assigned job.  The clean deads are a little different than my regular deadlift.  My back angle is more vertical, I rebend once the bar passes my knees and try to launch it upwards as I lock out.  After years of Meat telling me to snap my hips to the bar, I'm finally doing it.

Shut it down after 2 sets on incline bench.  I can count the number of times I've done morning training on one finger and this felt like enough today.  I actually got up early to do it this morning.  very out of character for me.

Called it there.

Matched all time PR for a split jerk and it didn't look any better than it did a year ago.  Feh.  It is getting better though.  Starting to land on the ball of the back foot about half the time and the side to side spread is happening now.

No energy tonight.  Wanted to stop after CJs but I stuck to the plan...pretty much.  No down sets for presses, shoulders were feeling creaky.  Very happy with the 165 for three, especially when feeling this way.
