So, as some of you might have noticed, my training hasn't had a whole lot of structure over the past few weeks. I had a few issues come up concerning weather, and then an injured training partner, and a few other things. Also, I am closing out my senior year of college and as such, am finding time for lifting difficult to come by. As such, I wanted to find something that would allow me to get stronger, but not spend too much time in the gym.

Some of you might be familiar with nate_bro who recently joined and started a log here. As it happens, he is actually a long time friend of mine (and if I may say so, my lifting protege as it were). I recently recommended that he move to 531 to keep his progress consistent without killing himself. Well, I am going to take my own advice and will be joining him on 531. As such, here is the first session:

5/3/1, CYCLE 1, 5's WEEK, DEADLIFT:

Warmup:
Foam rolling for back, hips, IT bands. Stretching for pecs, lats, hips. 1x10 each behind neck press, good mornings, squat to stands.

1. Hang Power Snatch:
Bar x 5
65 x 3
95 x 3
115 x 3
135 x 3
155 x 2
165 x 2. PR?

2. Deadlift:
225 x 5
275 x 5
320 x 5
365 x 8, PR! Belt.

3. Front Squat:
135 x 5
185 x 5
205 x 10
215 x 10
230 x 10

4. Leg Curl:
3 sets of 10

Session Grade: 80%
Notes:
Nice first session. Previous best power snatch was 175 for 1, but from the floor. So 165 for 2 seems like a PR to me! Deadlift was also good; I really wanted 9 or 10 going in, but 8 is a PR so a good set none the less. Front squats were brutal, I was pretty tired at this point, but got a decent amount of reps in.
