    Notes: Two plates for five reps is back!!! Felt really good to get this one back under my belt, pun sorta intended. I first did 225x5 over four years ago, but somehow it still feels like a major milestone.

    225x5 Press on IG

    Bench Press: 3" belt
    315x5x4 @8-8.5
    285x5 @7
    Notes: Added a fifth set back in today, but backed off to 285 for it. Still a lot more total work than my pressing sessions have been, so I'm not unexpectedly feeling the fatigue this morning after.

    Deadlift!!!!! (no belt)
    405x5, 455x3, 500x1
    Notes: From the freakin floor, bitches! Even with an adjusted stance, I still can't really start and set up in the position I'd like - my shins are a bit more vertical than I want them. But I was so flippin happy to be able to pull from the floor for the first time in over 7 months that I didn't stop at 405x5 as planned, but had to go and pull a 500 single.

    455x3 and 500 DL on IG

    Chins
    BW x6,7,8,8,7,7,6 = 49 reps

    Conditioning
    C2 Erg
    25/75 x6 - completed these at a 1:35-1:40 pace, then 1:32 for the last one. So getting. Then a final 270m at about 1:50-1:55 pace.

    LTEs
    77x10, 97x10x2
    Notes: 10 is a lot of reps. Felt the buuuuurnnnnn!
    Congratulations! I've been sort of irrationally (since I've never actually met you) really hoping you get back to where you want to be after your surgery and I'm really happy that you're making progress again.

    Thanks all, appreciate the moral support here.

    Quick and dirty today. Or more accurately, quick and light.

    CGBP
    135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 245x5x2

    Bench Press - 4" belt
    350x5 @9
    Notes: Last rep pushed down/forward and got waaaay out of the groove, made it much harder. Annoyed by that but don't think it means my (now weekly) LP is close to over. Just a bad technical rep throwing the whole set off.

    Press - 4" belt + wraps
    200x5x5 @7-7.5
    Notes: Easier than expected, solid.

    Block Pulls, 6" - 4" belt
    565x1 @7.5
    600x1 @8.5
    495x5x2 @7
    Notes: Dmitry Klokov walked in while I was loading up for 565. I was feeling pretty good about working up to 600 today, and saw a guy who could do that for three sets of ten or twelve or something, and remembered my place in the universe.

    Press Lockouts
    135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 245x3x2, 265x nope
    Notes: Not shockingly with my minuscule hip movement and layback, I wasn't very good at these but wanted to try them for the first time. Not very successfully. But it was enough work that I skipped LTEs.

    Chins
    +10x5, +20x5x5

    C2 Erg
    20/75 x6 - mostly in the 1:33-1:37 range, last one at 1:27. Moving up.
    Then two rounds of 225m, with 1:30 rest between, at 1:50-1:55 pace.

    Klokov really walked in? Cool. Did he snatch or clean and jerk at all?

    100% serious. I saw him lift some, ya, including a 335 snatch with a slow 3-4 second tempo pull all the way up to his hips. Felt like I was watching Michael Jordan at a shoot-around.

    Glad to see your lifting picking up again (pun intended).

    What’s the deal with klokov and the “Russian lifting crew” being in ny? Are they trying to establish a weightlifting business here?

    Vasily Polovnikov, who was a multi-time Russian WL champion, recently moved to NYC and is doing some of his lifting and private 1-on-1 WL coaching at Solace during off peak hours. I saw him deadlift 800 there a few weeks back, and he does some ridiculously heavy stuff pretty often, cool to watch. Anyway, I believe he's friends with Klokov and brought him here while he's in town.

    ETA: Looks like he posted the video of it: DMITRY KLOKOV 🇷🇺 @crosslifting on Instagram: “Рывок с медленной тягой - 143 kg, 152 kg
    .
