221x0 (didn't pull it high enough)
These were mixed grip pulled all the way to the shoulders. I like this technique.
Lying leg curls
These were super easy, EXCEPT for the last 2 inches...this exercise feels way different than the natural GHRs.
were these regular cleans or continetal's?
Did some doubles and triples with the hard 500 and the 700. Tech felt OK. It's definitely coming along.
8'' Log Clean + Jerk
So easy. I have a 240 in me...I just pressed a couple days ago.
Mucked around with axle a little bit.
Stones just chalk
220 to 52''
220 to 52''
220 to 52''
260 couldn't quite lap it, next time though
I can now consistently pick up the 220 which is really a great sign. My upper body strength has improved significantly. I have the strength to load much bigger stones, just got to work on lapping.
Did a bunch of singles with the 95 lb inch dumbbell.

Standing strict Axle press
191x0 (next time!)
Strict strength is much higher than it used to be.
Flat bench press (pinkies on rings)
Had more in the tank on these. Next week, when my body is accustomed to the movement, I'll put a lot more up.
Dumbbell Cuban press
25's x 4 sets
Closegrip pull-ups, strict
6 sets of 5
Sumo DL (no belt)
Was going to attempt 405 but my dad was yelling at me and I decided to leave some in the tank.
Full back squat ATG (no gear)
1-legged leg curl - each side
#3 x 8
#4 x 8
#5 x 6
Pulldown abs, purple band 2x15
BB Push press for speed
Kept feeling a slight twinge in my left rear delt, so I cut it a little short. It only bothers me with a straight bar for some reason...weights felt super light though.
Incline press against bands (pinkies on the rings, purples)
Strong. All 175 sets were a PR. Probably good for a 260 incline press right now.
1-arm DB row strict (one hand on bench)
55 x 8
105 x 10
125 x 6
135 x 4
Band pullaparts 2x15
Band pushdowns 10, 15
DE LOWER (1:30 AM workout, lol)
Started doing hang cleans but they felt like crap, worked up to 185x4, screw cleans now.
Box jumps to 37 inches, multiple sets
Power Squat machine
Wow, hits post chain good.
Seated leg curls
Probably shouldn't have lifted at this time, but oh well.
10'' Log clean + push press (one knee bend)
Dropped the 2nd rep of 221 behind my head because I felt a slight twinge in my rear delt and decided to be safe. You will see on the video that I definitely would have had the second rep.
Flat bench press (pinkies on the rings)
All 225 sets were a PR. Can't wait to see what I can do heavy next week.
DB cuban press
5-6 sets up to 30's x 6
Chin-up to failure game, my partner and I kept doing chin-ups until we couldn't anymore. Must have done close to 100.
Some band pushdowns, and that was it.
Besides the rear delt twinge, the day was great.
All sets after this are done with an UNLATCHED lever belt:
365x3 PR - too easy
WOW. That is all I can say. Legit depth, no wraps, belt wasn't even latched up.
Axle Jerk from the rack (for speed)
Wow. Everything was so easy...I just used 201 for a workset about a month ago, now it's speed weight for me.
Incline press against bands (pinkies on rings, purple bands)
135x3 no bands
Whew! Cleared it. 185 sets are all PRs. Next phase I'll be doing is closegrip decline bench.
1-arm DB rows strict
Good. Great workout.
Axle cleans (Mark phillipi style)
10+ sets working up to 225 or so. Lots of power cleans thrown in as well up to 180-190ish.
Glute ham raises - many many reps, trying to get as much work in as possible
Swiss ball leg curls 2x10
