    Very little sleep, and fairly sore today from work and deadlifts. Lower back and hips stiff and tender. Took a lot to work it out.

    Snatch:
    This was uncomfortable and awkward throughout the whole session. I was constantly making adjustments to my stance width and foot angle, trying to make it feel normal. I'm not sure what is going on with my setup and technique. It is not good. The only good news is that 165 was smooth and easy, and all 3 misses at 175 were solid and oh so close.

    Clean&Jerk:
    Felt strong and solid off the floor and through the first pull, but wasn't pulling under the bar. I kept unintentionally power cleaning everything, when I wanted to drop into a squat on every rep. Even when it got heavier, I was splaying my feet and barely getting under the bar. Frustrating.

    Back Squat:
    I was really worn down by this point, and my knee was aching for some reason. Hadn't been an issue before. Added knee wraps for support. Once it was supported, it felt fine.

    Absolutely exhausted today. Very little sleep the last 2 days.

    Rearranged my garage gym, moved a few thousand pounds of stuff around for a warmup. Actually just wore me down a lot.

    Front Squat:
    Decided to try 5s and see how that went. It did not go well. These were brutal and ugly. I know I don't do enough volume on front squats, but I didn't think this would be a 5 rep max.

    Bench Press:
    My shoulder, which had felt fine going in, was very sore during the heavy sets, not sure why. Tried to work it out, but couldn't.* Felt alright on back off sets.

    I bought a cable pulley system style home gym, and used it for the first time today for accessory work. Did some leg press, leg extensions, chest press, and cable curls afterward. All light weight, with decent amounts of volume. I'll have to see if it hinders my next session.

    I had a 30 hour day from Thursday into yesterday, due to family and personal obligations. I slept last night, but I'm still pretty tired.

    Overhead Squats:
    These were ugly, but I hit my goal weight, so I'm happy.

    Jerks:
    These were technically proficient and solid. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Not very well rested today. Session was very rushed. Little to no time between reps and sets, due to an obligation.

    Clean&Jerk:
    Decent.

    Snatch:
    Very inconsistent. No 2 reps looked the same. I felt strong off the floor, and pulled the bar plenty high, I just couldn't catch it in the same place. It was either too far forward or back almost every rep. I couldn't balance it. I also landed up on my toes a couple times, as well as landing flat footed and then rocking onto my toes. It got a little better as I went, but it was never smooth.

    Back Squat:
    Felt decent coming out of the snatch. But when I started squatting I got a pretty bad pinch/strain in my upper buttock/lower back. Made things difficult, but managed to grind through. Gotta work on that pinch now.

    Ended with some leg presses.

    I finally got some sleep last night, and felt decent coming into this. It was a nice change.

    Front Squats:
    Pretty good sets. I was able to keep my back angle almost perfectly vertical, which is something that has given me trouble for a while.

    Press:
    Not my best work, but not too bad. I was shocked at how worn down my legs were for this.

    I finished with cable curls, tricep extensions, leg presses, and leg extensions.

    I trained this morning, after I got off work, and after a while lot of family commitments, without sleeping. I've got family obligations all evening also, and had no other time. So this was far from ideal.

    Snatch:
    Rough. Tired. Legs and back were worn.

    Cleans:
    Even worse. Power cleaned all of these, but ugly as usual. I was able to keep a fairly decent vertical back angle, but with my feet splayed too wide. I wouldn't have been able to pull under if I had needed. I got lazy and sloppy on the last one, didn't rack it, and it popped off my chest.

    Back Squats:
    Somehow I managed to grind out an extra rep.

    I finished with a set of leg presses.

    I finally got plenty of sleep and felt decent coming in. Warmups went well enough and I felt like moving, which is unusual. I did however have some sinus pain when I leaned over to deadlift, which did not help.

    Overhead Squats:

    Pretty good. Solid vertical back angle with little forward lean or driving the butt back and up. This is about all I could manage for a set of 5.

    Deadlifts:
    Good reps. It would've been a great session if not for the sinus pressure and pain, which I hadn't felt until I started deadlifts.

    No accessory work.

    270x2(no knee wraps)

    Very little sleep today, and a very stiff and sore lower back. My back felt fine until about mid day yesterday, and it started tightening up. It hasn't gotten any better. I was barely able to get any relief before training.

    Snatch:
    This was heavy and hard, from the first warmup, all the way through to the end. I was slow and stiff and awkward. Feet splaying and catching in the power position, even though I didn't want to. I wasn't pulling under the bar at all. I caught the first 175 fairly easily, but couldn't balance it, which is the norm lately. But it wasn't even close after that. I missed the last lift because I came up on my toes again, rocking me back and forth. This is a new development recently and I can't figure out why. As far as I can tell, I haven't lost any range of motion in my ankles or knees.

    Clean&jerk:
    Even worse. I could not get warm or ready to lift after the 30 minutes. Cleans were ugly and choppy, jerks were very unstable. I was dancing around quite a bit.

    Back Squat:
    Pretty good, especially considering how poorly everything else went. I got the same 2 reps as last week, but without knee wraps this time. I'm happy with that.
