    Thanks Maria, I hope I lift better next time.

    Monday Nov 5th 2012 - Squat Day

    Squat (+ equipped squat + half squat)

    20kg (44 lbs) x 10
    60kg (132 lbs) x 5
    105kg (231 lbs) x 5
    130kg (287 lbs) x 3
    150kg (331 lbs) x 3
    170kg (375 lbs) x 1
    190kg (419 lbs) x 1 (suit on)
    200kg (441 lbs) x 1 (suit on)
    210kg (463 lbs) x 1 (suit on, not quite to full depth, equal to PR)
    220kg (485 lbs) x 3 (no suit, no wraps, half squats*)
    180kg (397 lbs) x 1 (no suit)

    * My original plan was just to take 220 (105%) for a ride, walk it out of the rack, see how it felt on the back. Coach Guğmundur persuaded me to try a negative, putting the safety bar at ~20cm (8") above parallel and lower the barbell to it under control. In the event, it wasn't as heavy as I expected and I lifted it 3 times. Afterwards, 180 felt light on the back indeed, but my legs were pretty tired so I only did a single.

    Bench Press

    60kg (132 lbs) x 8
    100kg (220 lbs) x 3
    120kg (265 lbs) x 1
    130kg (287 lbs) x 1

    Thursday Nov 8th 2012 - Bench Press Day

    I couldn't make it yesterday.

    Bench Press (+ equipped bench press)

    60kg (132 lbs) x 8
    100kg (220 lbs) x 3,3,3
    120kg (265 lbs) x 1
    140kg (309 lbs) x 2 (suit on)
    150kg (331 lbs) x 2 (suit on)
    120kg (265 lbs) x 3

    On the second rep of 140 I got out of alignment a bit and forced it up unnaturally. Afterwards, my shoulders felt off and I didn't feel quite right on the 150 set either even though I completed it. I decided to be careful and skip the planned 155-160 and tested my shoulders (mostly left) on 120 raw. Felt a bit sore and so decided not to push it.

    (They feel quite a lot better now, a couple of hours later)

    Power Snatch

    50kg (110 lbs) x 2,2,2,2,2,2

    EZ-Bar Curl

    40kg (88 lbs) x 20
    30kg (66 lbs) x 30
    20kg (44 lbs) x 40

    First set by far the hardest.

    Friday Nov 9th 2012 - Deadlift Day

    Power Clean

    40kg (88 lbs) x 3
    50kg (110 lbs) x 3
    60kg (132 lbs) x 2
    70kg (154 lbs) x 2

    Deadlift (+ equpped deadlift)

    120kg (265 lbs) x 3
    150kg (331 lbs) x 3
    170kg (375 lbs) x 3
    200kg (441 lbs) x 1
    220kg (485 lbs) x 1
    242.5kg (535 lbs) x F,1 (suit on)

    My right palm has been rather bad lately, so I was using a glove and strap on that hand. On the first attempt at 242.5 I forgot to chalk my left hand and the grip gave out above the knee. On the second, the strap slipped and the grip sort of gave out on the right but it was a pretty much finished lift (minus a full lockout). So I'll count it as done because if I'm bare handed I have no grip problems at any weight and lockout isn't normally a problem.

    On the other hand, my left elbow feels a bit wonky. I was going to bench a bit but after a little warmup, decided against it.

    I guess I'm getting a bit battered at this stage and looking forward to this meet thing being over.

    Monday Nov 15th 2012 - Bench Press Day

    Bench Press (+ equipped bench)

    45kg (100 lbs) x 10
    60kg (132 lbs) x 5
    80kg (176 lbs) x 5
    100kg (220 lbs) x 3
    120kg (265 lbs) x 1
    130kg (287 lbs) x 1
    140kg (309 lbs) x 1 (suit on)
    145kg (320 lbs) x 2 (suit on)
    150kg (331 lbs) x 1 (suit on)

    This didn't go well at all. My elbows were quite sore once I started, possibly from squatting yesterday, maybe from that misaligned bench last week. In any case, even though 140 went up like a rocket, 145 and 150 were slower than I would have liked and the elbows were getting worse, so I stopped for now. I'll see how I am Friday.

    I have never had elbow problems before. I iced them over TV last night and it helped a lot, but today I can still feel them a bit. I may have to lower my opener but I hope they improve over the next week.

    Elbows not happy with this so I quit there (they feel OK again today, 20 hours later)

    Deadlift

    120kg (265 lbs) x 3
    160kg (352 lbs) x 1 (PR for double overhand grip I think)

    8 days until meet. I will do very little next week and hope my elbows recover fully.

    Saturday Nov 24th 2012 - Meet Day

    Bodyweight

    92kg (202 lbs)

    I screwed the pooch.

    Squat
    I completely fucked up my squats. 195-195-205. All easy. All high. Gotta get someone tougher to critique my depth! I really thought I was going asstograss every time!

    Bench

    140kg good
    145kg good
    150kg too slow and couldn't finish.

    Deadlift

    230kg good
    240kg good
    250kg good and all time PR! and 1/4 of a fucking ton!

    It's good to at least finish up well even though it doesn't count in any meaningful way. 250kg !
