Got the spreadsheet errors fixed. I am hating front squats less every week.

Default 9/15/2011 clean and pressing stuff

Today I didnt print anything out for my workout. I just wanted to play with the new weight room at my new building. We ordered nothing but bumper plates. We have 4-45's, 4-35's, 2-25's and 2-15's. We also got 2 5 pound plates that are steel. Our new bars are fairly low quality with razor sharp knurling. I decided that since I could play around and finally drop a weight if it went wrong, I would try some power snatch, clean and jerk, and some heavy power cleans.

Power snatches:
75X3
95X3
115X3
135X3
150x1*
These were very ugly and felt horrible. The last set doesnt really count as it was more like a wide grip clean and press.

Clean and press/power jerk(Clean each rep)
150X3
160X3
170X3
185X2
205X2
225X1
240X1
255Xmissed clean*
Had a lot better luck here, these felt smooth and natural. I really screwed up with the last one though. As I failed to power clean it, I decided I would try to continental clean it and pulled my right bicep irritating it a lot.

DB Bench Press:
90'sX3X5

Facepulls:
cant rememberX3X10*
We have a sorta cable cross machine that really suck for facepulls. I will have to substitute bent over lateral raises for these in this facility.

Notes: Other than irritating a bicep this was a great session. I did forget to do my rows, which is kind of dissappointing, but all in all a good workout.

Default 9/19/2011 OH and stuff

Alright its my "1" week. Time for PR's on all 4 lifts across the week and a positive outlook for the start of fall.

Strict Press:
135X5
135X5
145X3

Push Press:
185X5
205X3
230X>1(GOT 4) PR

incline bench press:
140X3X10

Chins:
BWX4
BWX3
BWX4
My right bicep feels a little sore still, but not nearly as bad as it did on Thursday.

Facepulls:
100X3X12
Gonna add a 2.5lb plate to the stack next week and pull for 10 to see how it feels.

Notes: Huge PR for push press. I want to say my best previously was 230X2. I feel strong and my body feels good. Time to set a deadlift PR tomorrow

Your 9/15/11 workout looks really fun, and awesome job on the push press PR.

Also hope your bicep feels better.

Strong work Austin. Looks very similar to the stuff I've been doing with SMWA the last several weeks.
18 inch deads sound gruesome!
