    No introduction is necessary. I'm keeping track of my lifts here for disciplinary purposes. 2018 was a mediocre year for gains due to injuries. Hopefully, this year will turn out to be better. I'm also doing a diet log to complement this log: http://forums.sherdog.com/threads/carnivore-diet.3890757/

    I'm doing a strict meat-and-eggs only diet for a month to combat joint pain and other ailments, which have been seriously detrimental to my training progress last year. I will post my stats tomorrow.

    Age: 30
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 210 +/- 2 lbs

    Current PRs:

    C+J: 162 kg
    Snatch: 125 kg
    Front squat: 200 kg/440 lbs
    Back squat: 535 lbs
    Bench: 395 lbs
    Deadlift: 575 lbs 2RM. Don't know my 1RM

    Nothing serious today. Just getting back into the routine of things.

    Power Snatch

    6 sets of singles with 235 lbs
    3 sets of double with 215 lbs

    OHP
    Up to 245 for a single then backed off with
    215 x 3
    205 x 5

    If my lower back and knees get better by tomorrow, I will attempt a max out on the clean and jerk, snatches, and back squat tomorrow.

    Bit of a strange day today. I was ready to go all out on the lifts, but while I was squatting my sub max, I heard a pop in my lower back. Nothing serious, but I had to reduce the intensity of today's training session and take out the C+J and replace it with OHP to play it shape.

    Im still in the adaptation phase of the diet, so I don't know when exactly I will feel the effects of improvement, but I'm still remaining strong and strict on this diet.

    Back squat

    Daily max at 485
    Backed off with a double with 445. Wanted to do a triple, but couldn't after the 2nd rep.

    Muscle Snatch + Power Snatch complex

    Up to 155 for 2+1

    Then maxed out on the muscle snatch only at 205 (PR)

    Failed 215

    Power Snatched up to 225

    OHP

    Worked up to 225 for a double
    Maxed out at 235 for a single

    DB OHP

    Worked up to 70 for a set of 6
    Backed off with sets of 8 with 60, 55, 50, 45
