Lightbulb Day 1: The awakening

I had my first session tonight, and it was eye-opening to say the least! I considered myself moderately fit, but I knew I was mistaken after the first 2 sets! ...and yes these weights are LBS...

75 x 3
75 x 3
No 4th set
No 5th set

Power Clean

75 x 6
No 3rd set

75 x 3
55 x 3
45 x 3
45 x 3

45 x 12
45 x 12
45 x 12

Vertical Jump (Jump rope between sets)
3 sets of 6

Chins
BW x 5


Bodyweight was 209 tonight.



As the title of the post implies, this session was revealing and exciting. I was exhausted very early and didn't do the final sets of the first two exercises. The foreseeable future will be devoted to honing my technique and VERY slowly increasing weight until technique breaks down, then i'll use that weight until i'm confident in my form, etc. As of right now, the only bit I'm confident in is wanting to do it. I'm looking forward to this training; it is going to be very interesting!

PS Please, if anyone has questions or suggestions, lay them on me.
