    MaxPL: training log from the other side of the ocean (i.e. Italy)

    Dear all,
    after 3 years of lifting I decided to open here a training log. The suggestion came from my friend and training partner Marcorock (Rock1984 as well)
    I'm italiano, living in Italy. So it's interesting to share these posts with you guys, most of whom I guess are from US, or anyway from the other side of the ocean.
    Thanks in advance for any of your suggestions which may you place.
    Good lift !

    Brief data:

    Weight: 82 Kg (181)
    Height: 166 cm (5 foot 6'')
    Competition PR (geared IPF 1-ply): 270 kg (595), 170 kg (375), 252.5 (556)
    Gym PR: 280 kg (617), 175 kg (385), 260 (570)

    I Just put on the first week toward italian PL champioships (April, the 26th, IPF 1-ply)

    Good squat, good feeling. Possibly good effect of magnesium-potassium drunk before living home? LoL
    Anyway a fair week start work out.
    I tried to squat with good form, very slow descend, fast direction change, acceleration at sticking point. 150 kg seemed easy, so I put on other 10 kg.
