    I did not get to train at all on Saturday. I was gone from 6am-10pm. I did a double session on Sunday.

    Jerks
    95x5
    120x5
    145x5
    165x5
    182.5x1
    182.5x1
    182.5x1
    182.5x1
    182.5x1

    Deadlift
    135x5
    185x5
    212.5x5
    245x5
    277.5x10

    Jerks:
    These went well enough technically, but they felt awkward and hard. 3 weeks without jerking had a negative effect. I didn't feel anywhere near as proficient as I had been lately.

    Deadlifts:
    I was not expecting the jerks to take such a toll on my back, but they did. Between the jerks and cumulative fatigue, my back was fried for these. They were incredibly slow and hard reps.

    I was unable to train today. I had muscle spasm in my upper back that were so bad I couldn't move for a while. By the end of the day I was feeling better. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.

    Weight: 172.3

    Snatch
    95x3
    115x3
    135x3
    145x3
    152.5x1
    152.5-miss
    152.5-miss

    Press
    45-10x2
    65x3
    85x3
    102.5x3
    115x3
    130x4
    130x4
    130x3

    My back felt back to normal today.

    Snatches:
    From a technical standpoint, these were pretty good. They felt heavy, but I got every rep where it needed to be, I just failed to balance the last 2 reps.

    Presses:
    I was shocked at how much snatching took out of my triceps and affected my pressing. I'm used to pressing the day after snatches, not 10 minutes later. My triceps were very weak for these. It took me 3 sets to get my 10 reps.

    No accessory work today due to doubling up on my training sessions.

    Cleans
    95x3
    115x3
    135x3
    150x3
    172.5x3
    192.5x1
    192.5-miss
    192.5x1

    Dumbbell Curls:
    30s-5x5, 25s-10x5, 20s-25x1

    I probably should've changed things up and done the bench press today, but I didn't. It did not go very well. I adjusted my percentages to try to make things smoother, and it didn't work. Every single rep felt like a 1 rep max. It was a tough day.

    Back Squat
    45-10x2
    95x3
    135x3
    155x3
    175x3
    197.5x10

    Back-off sets:
    110-10x5

    These were brutal. I barely ground my way through 10. The back-off sets were worse. I thought about skipping them, but decided to push through in hopes of making squatting easier in the future.

    Once again I didn't get home until 10pm, so I didn't train. I doubled up on Sunday.

    152.5x3
    172.5x3

    Deadlift

    185x3
    230x3
    265x3
    295x7
    295x3

    Jerks:
    These were decent. I had my doubts with how heavy they felt in the rack position, but I managed them well enough.

    Deadlift:
    These weren't too bad, but I was spent. For the first time in this program, I had stop before I reached 10. Things were breaking down fast, so I had to rest.

    It was a short night and a long hard day at work. I was already sore from yesterday's training, and it got worse. My diet has been garbage lately and my sleep has been worse lately. I knew going in that snatches were going to be rough.

    Not only was my back fried, but so were my hands. Between work and the gym, everything was sore. Gripping the bar hurt. I wrapped my thumbs, but my palms hurt too and there was nothing to be done about that.
