    Dialing back sucks, but partial squats suck more. Those are some good tips from Chubrock, I am going to keep them in mind the next time I squat.

    Yeah I wouldn't call it that bad. Cool you are so self-aware though. I don't pull wide like that so I guess I know less what to look for.

    Not totally sure what my max is on axle deads. My max w/regular bar and mixed grip is 425, so my pulling power is less than yours, clearly.

    That said, I know I can power clean at least 165 on...

    Shorter descending WODs like that are some of my favorite. Transitioning from 15 pull-ups to 12 HSPUs would've sucked though.

    Today was the first day I could finally raise my arms up all the way.

    DL - Worked up to a few triples @325 lbs. Was going for 80% which would've been 340 but 325 felt heavy enough.

    Crap man it's Monday and it is still a struggle to lift my arms above my head. I apparently suck at pull-ups and need to put in some time on them.

    I see where you are coming from on the diet for sure. I am tracking calories right now, loosely, but that is to get down to a specific weight. Finding a way to eat consistently without hating it,...

    Chub - yeah it sucks. I try to get on the ab wheel now and then but it is easy to talk myself out of it.

    Deload weeks are boring to read about for others but I'm sure it is serving it's purpose for you. Keep plugging away.

    Good job on the snatch improvement. It is easily the hardest oly lift for me. I assume it is for most people.

    It was fun. I think it'll only get better as the weather improves.

    Today:

    800m run x 3 with 2 minutes rest between runs. Finished in 15:35 total, really fell off on the last run. I wish I'd...

    Where do you grip on your overhead pressing movements? I've been playing around with that a bit trying to find the sweet spot. Nice job on the 5 rep PR if indeed it is one.

    How do you think pulling with the stiff bar helps? Is it on the initial pull off the ground?

    Thanks. I got stopped at least once by traffic which knocked my pace off and had me stand around for probably 10 seconds. I will hope for sub 7 (and sub-200) before the end of summer.

    What is your mobility regimen? The older I get the less tolerant I am of being tight, I'm finding or making the time to loosen up.

    Push jerk - 135x5x5 - this felt surprisingly heavy.

    1 mile run - 7:36. Haven't run that much in a while so under 8 minutes felt solid. I can definitely do better though.
