    Snatched up to 102 kgs. Hit some squats and goofed off. Getting some pretty intense hip pain. Think I strained something when I was cold. We'll see how it goes tonight. Going to try to get some video.

    Tweaked something in the erector area. Not a huge deal but cleans are taking a back seat for a while. Did manage to front squat 128 kgs for a nice 5. Felt good. Probably good for 130+ for a set of 5 which means I'm getting back within range of a 180 kg front squat.

    Just technique work for now. Did incline d-bell press the 75s for a set of 20. More to come soon.

    Momenutm building.
    The time off and increased mobility work has really paid off. I feel great.

    Snatched doubles up to 90 then singles up to 107. Thought about 110 but decided to stop on a high note and without a single missed rep.
    Power clean and power jerk up to 105.
    Overhead squat doubles to 80.
    Front squat triples to 110.
    Back squat singles to 170.
    KB swing, clean and press, and single-arm swings up to 48 kgs.
    60 minute deep tissue massage.
    3-day weekend.

    Nice session last night. Finally feeling some consistency in the movements. Some control.

    Snatched up to 100 kgs without a miss. Nice.
    Put 130 kgs on just to do some liftoffs and pulls to get used to the weight. HEAVY.
    Squat up to 150 for 5s. Also HEAVY.

    So still a real fight on the strength stuff. Lifts are coming along, though.
    I'm working on a squat jerk and once I get it down I'll post a vid.

    Started doing some drop-ins at local gyms, mostly crossfits. Lifting in public provides a good bit of motivation and intensity that's hard to recreate when alone in the garage.

    Friday night I hit a 109 kg snatch, back squatted up to 365 lbs, and then did some push/pull work with press/chins for five rounds of triples. Not bad. Starting to feel good again. Do have one issue. The bone block that attaches my REPAIRED acl to my tibia is inflamed/swolen/popped-out? I don't know. There's no pain and I've been lifting on it, but it worries me.

    Snatched up to 90 kgs last night. Had several misses at 90 before hitting it. That ain't good. Takes a long time to get warmed-up when it's this cold. Went on to front squat 135 kgs x 5. That's a 5RM PR. Mostly because I've never kept 5RM PRs, but still.

    Really smoking mobility stuff after each workout. Trying to open up the groin, hips, and psoas/hip flexors. Foam rolling out any tension in IT/calves. Getting a field hockey ball deep into the glutes. Good stuff.

    Power Clean and Jerk to 100. Missed some jerks at 115. That ain't good.

    Overhead squat 92 x 5. Not bad. I think a body weight OHS for reps is a pretty cool barometer of mobility/stability. If you can put your body weight overhead and go thru a full ROM squat 5 or 10 times, you're mobile, stable, and strong pretty much head to toe.
