    Tough day.

    Snatches felt great, 152 for doubles was extremely easy. Clean felt the best that have since I started doing them again, did a good job of actually catching the bar and not just diving under it. Jerks felt a bit off to start but finished feeling good.

    I widen my stance significantly for squats, trying to mimic my front squat/clean receiving stance, and so were a little harder than anticipated. As were power jerks which felt a bit awkward.

    Most surprising though was how tough overhead squats felt. Snatches couldn't have felt more steady and yet at a lower weight I was struggling. Even had to cut my third set short as I could feel I was going to lose it. Weird.

    Really good session.

    First snatch double at 152 didn't feel quite as good as I'd like, but subsequent sets felt extremely solid. Really focused on staying over the bar and it's definitely helping.

    Clean and jerks followed same pattern. Focus was on catching bar and riding it down versus chasing it. Catch position was the best it's felt yet; no more star fishing and so standing up felt much better. Jerks felt great. I really focused on not pushing too soon and as a result my lockout much more solid.

    I tested my front squat last weekend and was pretty shocked to fail on 255. My front squat in the past has always been about 90% of my back squat, so failing at 80% was pretty surprising. Explains why cleans have been the roughest getting back to of all the movements.

    Think a big part of the drop-off is due to losing ankle dorsiflexion. It's been around 2 years since I last stopped focusing on weightlifting and in that time I was only ever in a full squat position when back squatting, and even that was only once a week.

    Overheard squats continued to be a lot harder than they should be, something about the eccentric portion that I'm struggling with.

    Clean and jerk triples are just tiring as fuck. Let the fatigue get to me a bit on the set at 157 was pretty sloppy, so said fuck it and really attacked second set and it was 10x better.

    I really need to keep focusing on increasing my ankle flexibility, especially on my right ankle. I slacked off on that over the weekend and dear god was my right ankle tight, which really threw me off.

    Snatch felt ok, seemed as though the second rep in all my doubles was always far better than my first. Went for 170 after my planned doubles just to see how tough it'd be. Ended up hitting it pretty solidly, though I could feel doubt creeping in, which is probably why I cut my extension way short.

    Clean and jerks were predictably easy. Wanted to see if I could still power clean 180 and 192 so gave them a try. Both were solid.

    Not sure if its cause I need to get a little more conditioned or if its me widening my stance, but squats were pretty damn tough. This was where my ankle's stiffness was fucking with me the most, bottom position felt terrible.

    Off from work and was bored. Hopefully won't be an idiot and do this too often, though I did just find 24 hour gym that has bumper plates and platforms so who knows.

    Left quad was cramping up during snatch warmups, which gave me the feeling this impromptu max out session wasn't going to go well.

    Snatches felt ok to start. 165 was solid but I panicked at the last second on my attempt at 175. Basically dropped under the bar and immediately prepped to control/catch the miss. Disappointing.

    Have a feeling that I might be pretty efficient in terms of clean and jerk to front squat. 210 wasn't a great clean, but didn't feel like a max, and the jerk was very steady.

    Messed around with paused snatches after, just cause I hadn't done them in probably 2 years. Oddly enough I felt much more confident doing these compared to the regular snatches earlier. Hit 160, 2 second pause at just under knee, without a problem.

    Can't believe I somehow hadn't seen the gym I mentioned earlier. It's less than 5 minutes from my place, has bumper plates, platforms, etc, has 24 hour access and isn't ridiculously priced. I'm pretty fucking excited.

    Quick session today.

    Snatches were cake, though I did tear a callous open that annoyed me the rest of the session.

    Cleans were just okay. The first rep of each of the top triples was great; feet didn't come too far out, stayed upright, rode the bar down and even caught a bounce. But after that I my stance started getting a bit too wide .

    Idk what it is about snatch high pulls, but I hate them. Was getting good height on the bar, but fuck did these tire me out.

    Moved my stance in a bit on back squats, a kind of happy medium between my old squat stance and my clean catch stance, and was much more comfortable compared to earlier in the week.
