If you get it uploaded to youtube, you can just paste the youtube URL into a post and the video should display

Week 17, Thursday, 6-28-12
Deadlift, 5 reps, 250, 340, 360. At 365 next wk, I'll be back to where I was.
OH Press, 155(7,6,5).Same as last week.
F.Squat, 185 (5,5,5).
Calf Raise, 8 reps, 135, 160, 170

Week 17, Friday, 6-29-12
BbRow, 185(7,6,6). 1 more than last week, 1 short of 20rep goal.
IncDbBench, 100(2), 95(6,5). Trying out the heavier weigh.
Pullups, BW+35 (7,6,5). First attempt.

I'll stick to 95s on Incline bench until i can control them better. The 100's felt very heavy. Been very happy with the progress on pullups.

Deadlifts in general have felt lighter. The 340 felt surprisngly light. I could've gotten another rep and maybe 2 of the 360. So, it didn't feel that heavy. It's a welcome change i've seen in the last week or so--I credit the few extra kcal and carbs lately. Maybe even the cleans, relatively light as they are, have done helped here.

Good to hear. Hopefully you'll be well over 400 in no time.

Week 18, Monday, 7-2-12
Squats, 245 (7,7,6). I'm staying at 245 until it feels lighter.
Calf Raise 8 reps, 280, 290, 300(6)
Cleans 5x3, 175. Barely. Technique has to be more consistent.
W.Situps, 3 x BW+90 x 15. Can't believe I can do situps with 90# on my chest.
Hangcleans, 135 (1x5)

I'd love to have a coach on the cleans, but no one in this town (AFAIK) teaches/coaches this movement. None of the trainers at this gym are qualified to do it (imo).

Week 18, Tuesday, 7-3-12
Bench, 280(1), 265(2), 250(3), 235(4), 225(5). Same as last week.
DbRow85 (12,11,10). 1 more than last week.
Dips BW+85(7,6,6). 4 more than last week.
Chinups BW+25(7,6,6). Same as last week.

Bench feels lighter than it has in the past. 280 moved up smoothly. I'll be trying a lifetime PR of 285 next week. Then, I need some advice. Do I go back to the 20 rep goal set up and see if I can finally get the 20 reps at 250? Or should I stick with this until progress stops?
