    Was supposed to be a light day of powers but couldnt resist trying for some new maxes.

    180 and 215 are both new 5lb power maxes and oddly enough correlate to each other much more normally compared to my full lifts (83.7% vs 91.1%). Once I figure out how to clean I sense some big clean and jerk PR's coming.

    End of cycle max out day.

    Snatches felt very good to start. 180 wasn't quite as easy as I'd have liked, but the miss at 200 was just a hair in front and felt good enough to jump to 210. 210 felt slow as fuck off the floor but the first miss was close enough I knew I could get it. Nailed second try to tie my all time PR. 215 was ridiculously slow off the floor but all 3 attempts were very close, in retrospect should have just gone for 212.

    Been stretching my right ankle all week and the added dorsiflexion has done wonders for my clean. First try at 230 the clean had me puffing and lost focus on the jerk. Second try was equally as tough but was able to collect myself and nail the jerk. 237 would be a 1lb all time PR and I pulled it high enough but couldnt stop it from crushing me.

    Had no trouble staying upright on front squats, that said 255 was not close.

    Really happy with progress so far. I've been back weightlifting for 4.5 months and I've already tied my best ever snatch and I'm only 6lbs off my best clean and jerk, plus when I hit those old maxes I was back squatting 320-330 and front squatting 275-285. Plan on running a much more hypertrophy/strength-focused program next and really pushing my squat up.

    First day of new program and fuck did I forget how tiring high rep sets are. That said I did enjoy the pump I got from 10's.

    Squats were more tiring than I expected but not that tough strength-wise.

    Push presses were likewise, need to remember to push through my heels when I get tired.

    Bench was absolutely fucked. 135 was a lot tougher than I expected and failing at 122 was a bit of an ego bruiser.

    Lunges and presses were both pretty easy.

    Woke up at 142.5 this morning, which is the lowest I've weighed in probably close to 10 years. So this is probably exactly what I need.
