    It took a while to get loose. My left hip hurt, but felt better after a brisk warm-up walk. Then loosened up completely during stretching and barbell work.

    Front Squats went well enough. I decided to go light and just get a solid 3x3. I'll start upping the weight from here on out.

    Bench Press went really well. I was very happy. My first time doing AMRAP on the way back done. It really took a lot out of me.

    An absolutely horrible day. I was stiff and had a lot of little pinches and strains that I could not work out. Hips, glutes, shoulders, elbows. I think my extensive overtime work and lack of sleep finally caught up with me.

    Back Squats were extremely hard on the hips and glutes. Had a pinch somewhere and could not work it out. Very tiring too. Way harder than they should have been.

    Snatching was a nightmare. This is definitely the worst snatch session I've had in a* very long time.

    Jerks we're interrupted and I had a hard time getting loose again. My knees, elbows, and lower back were stiffer than before and it was hard to loosen up. I did what I could do. These were true doubles, and they were better than they had any right to be, but I couldn't possibly do any more. I was fried.

    I had to do a lot of moving today to work all the kinks out. After yesterday's workout I really started seizing and tightening up. I felt horrible. My lower back was so tight I could barely move. I got it all worked out throughout the day.

    Front Squats were tiring, but were a lot smoother than the back squats.

    Clean&Press was difficult. My upper back was worn down from yesterday. I am happy with what I got. I didn't think it would go this well.

    My lower back and glutes were tight again. Had a shooting pain down my left glute. Couldn't work it out.

    Back Squats were very hard. They have felt very awkward lately. My legs have just been weak recently.

    Clean&Jerk wasn't too bad considering that my legs were dead. Much better than my nightmare snatch session on Monday.

    No time today. Lifted late this evening. Had to skip the front squats, other deadlifts, and accessory work I had planned. Barely had time for this.

    I have not been sleeping well. I was sluggish today. Couldn't get motivated.

    Back Squats were terrible. I realized how poorly I've been sleeping and how bad my recent nutrition had been when I started squatting. Just the warmups were hard. This was all supposed to be sets of 5, but I was sucking wind, so I did a couple singles.

    Snatch was difficult. My left hip started hurting in the catch position, but it was better than last week. I'm not sure why I missed the 5th rep.

    Clean&Jerk was about like the snatch. Rough but manageable.

    I felt better today, got some decent sleep, ate well.

    Front Squats felt pretty good. I decided to just do some singles today and see where I stood. I was about where I thought I'd be: weak.

    Bench Press was decent. Right elbow was a little sore.

    Fairly well rested. Not feeling too bad, except for a pinched muscle/nerve in my upper trap/neck area. Haven't been able to work it out in 2 days.

    Back Squats were uncomfortable because of the neck issue, but otherwise easy.

    Snatches went really well. It has been a while since I hit 10/10.

    Jerks were decent. Felt sharp and smooth. I broke my jerk blocks again on the last set.

    Pretty sore from yesterday.

    Front Squats went well enough.

    Clean&Press was hard and tiring. I didn't have much push behind these.
