    SOHP 135 x 5
    SOHP 135 x 5
    SOHP 145 x 5
    SOHP 145 x 5
    SOHP 155 x 4 (+1 Push-Press)
    SOHP 165 x 2
    SOHP 165 x 1
    SOHP 175 x 0 (kinda fatigued.. bleh)
    SOHP 175 x 0 (same deal)

    Each set was power cleaned from the floor, then pressed for the designated reps.

    Tomorrow I am going to deadlift instead of doing 10 sets of 3 at 265. Next week I'll increase my monday squats to 7 x 5 at 245, then do 10 x 3 at 275 next thurs as my routine originally planned for. I just really want to get a good deadlifting session in tomorrow with some singles in the 450 range.

    Today I deadlifted. I feel great, it was fun. I love deadlifting and really missed it the last two weeks.

    Deadlift 225 x 10 (double overhand)
    Deadlift 315 x 5 (double overhand)
    Deadlift 405 x 1 (over/under from here out)
    Deadlift 425 x 1
    Deadlift 445 x 1
    Deadlift 445 x 1
    Deadlift 445 x 1

    I really love doing heavy singles. 445 is about 94% of my 1rm.

    SOHP 135 x 5
    SOHP 145 x 4
    SOHP 145 x 4
    SOHP 145 x 3

    All sets were cleaned from the floor. I'm not sure how much reduced pressing volume split between two days is working for me. I may redo my workout structure in a month or two. I really like going to the gym 4 days a week but 4 days in a row really can leave a lot to be desired on tues/weds.

    I still feel like I'm getting a cold, but it isn't full blown. IDK whats going to happen, tonight I am only getting 6 hours of sleep so maybe I'll feel like shit tomorrow :p

    I'm still hanging around the 160-163 area. I really like snatch grip deads. I'm probably gonna alternate between heavy singles at conventional grip and higher volume at snatch grip between weeks for a month or so and see where I go.

    Back Squat 275 x 3
    Back Squat 275 x 3

    Back Squat 275 x 3

    Deadlift 495 x 0 (fail)
    Deadlift 315 x 5
    Deadlift 405 x 3

    I attempted 495 tonight cause a guy at our gym was PRing as well and everyone told me I should try too after he failed miserably. The weight actually felt pretty light coming off the floor, I got stuck about an inch or two from lockout for several seconds until my right hand grip started to go out. I definitely feel like I have 495 in me now.

    On another note, I'm going to change my routine a bit for the next month and will no longer be squatting and instead deadlifting two times a week.
