    After a while of lifting but not logging, I finally figured out a system to keep track of my sets.

    Also I was traveling and then sick so I didn't train or lift from Friday to Tuesday.

    Here goes:

    Clean and Jerk (1 + 1's): 65 95 115 125 125 130 130 (lbs)

    Snatch (1 + 1's): 65 65 65 75 75 80 (lbs)

    Squat (highbar, so resetting): 45x5, 135x3, 185x2, 215x3x5

    Thought this got deleted but I found it while googling for programming advice haha.

    I've had a good 2017-2018 tournament-wise.
    I got silver at 2017 blue belt nogi worlds at featherweight, silver at 2018 pan ams at featherweight, and silver at 2018 nogi pan ams at featherweight, plus a couple golds at the NY and DC open and so on.

    At the 2018 nogi pans I tore my LCL while taking someone's back from 5050, so I've been out for 2 months.

    During that time I started lifting every day and improved my strength significantly, with my bodyweight going from 147lbs (with weight cut, walking weight more like 160) to a bw of 175 right now.

    I was able to box squat in a knee brace shortly after the injury, and my maxes went as follows:

    Box squat: 225 for 3x5 to 245 for 5x5
    Deadlift: 265 for 5 reps to 330 for 5 reps
    Bench press (this was the biggest improvement, it's crazy what not doing jiujitsu can do for your shoulders): 155 for 5 reps to 205 for 5 reps
    OHP: 95 for 3x5 to 135 for 3x5

    My programming has been a bit ad hoc but basically as follows:
    Monday:
    Box Squat 5x5
    Bench 3x5
    Weighted pull ups 5x5

    Wednesday:
    Deadlift 3 ramped worksets i.e. 295x5, 315x5, 330x5
    OHP 3x5
    Kroc rows (right now I'm at 110 for 20 reps)
    Power cleans 5x3
    Pull ups 80 total reps in sets of 10

    Friday:
    same as Monday, etc
