    Push
    157.5x5x3 Milking this as much as I can before switching to a more intermediate program.

    Squat
    Squat: 295x5x3
    This is quite exciting. Another 10lb jump and 5lbs away from returning to the 300lb club after half a year of frustration and pain. I nearly fainted from the adrenaline of the third set and peaced out after this to go eat.

    Just snatch.
    Push

    Squat

    Sn/CJ

    Snatch:
    40kgx3
    50x3
    55x3
    60x3
    65x3
    70x2 (missed one)
    75x1
    80x1 This one was a bit emotional for me. It's not much, I know, but it's the weight that I was snatching when I hurt my knee nearly seven months ago. It's good to (almost) be back.

    One caveat: This weight must be bad joojoo or something, because even though I lifted it effortlessly, when I put it down, my left wrist flared a little. Might have stretched a ligament somehow? We'll see tomorrow. In the meantime, ice, NSAIDs, and the First Noble Truth.

    Pulls
    Wanted to do sn pulls and sn deads, but the wrist forced my hand.

    My wrist is still tender, so no overhead work.
    Push

    Squat

    Squat: 305x5x2
    AFTER a 315 overprime. First time squatting 3 wheels since my injury.
    It felt really good to easily move three wheels down and up for the first time since I got hurt.
    However, on the 5th rep of the 2nd set I was tired and and GM'ed the rep. Low back spasmed and I cut it off there. Should have just done 300, I guess.... Now trying to loosen everything up; will probably drop it back a bit next time / spend a few sessions pushing up the front squat. Will play by ear.

    My wrist is still tender, so no overhead work.
    Push

    Squat
    Front squat: 225x5x2, 225x7
    Lo and behold my back was super sore and twitchy all day today from yesterday's bad squats. My quads were unaffected though so I thought I'd get some work in and it was easy.

    Good-mornings: 135x10x2
    Just trying to get the kinks out of my low back and glutes and move some blood around. Haven't done these in years. Was surprisingly effective at loosening things up, thank goodness.

    My wrist is mostly okay, but my low back is still jacked up.
    Push

    Squat
    Front squat: 235x5x3
    The low back was still sore but I managed to make another 10lb jump. This one was a bit tougher than the last one, and the adrenaline was coarsing so hard that I was yelling and screaming to myself in the power rack. Good times.

    Sn/CJ
    Snatch:
    40kgx3x2
    50kgx3x3
    55kgx3
    60kgx3
    65kgx2
    70kgx2x2
    Bunch of misses in there. Not a good day.

    Good mornings: 60kg x a bunch

    I woke up extremely sore in the quads, hams, and upper back after yesterday's fiery front squats so I stopped by the gym to work some kinks out.

    Push

    Squat
    Squat: Bar x 20, 135x10x2, 185x7, 225x5, 275x2, 225x5, 135x10
    I wanted to do more at the top set but the crunching sound that kicked in with my knee told me otherwise. My back was feeling looser and my hips and legs weren't as sore so I called it a win and left.

    Still resting the wrist so jerks are the only overhead work today.

    Squat
    300x5x2 After a shitload of warmups. The knee was flaring and grinding and I took too big a break after set 2 and went cold. Pinned on first rep of set 3. Will try this again with more confidence, perhaps after 1-2 front squat sessions to assist the quads and take the stress of my low back.

    Sn/CJ
    C&J:
    50kgx3
    60kgx3
    70kgx3
    80kgx3
    90kgx2

    Clean:
    100x1
    105x1 Post-injury PR

    Pulls
    I clarked 109kg for 1 rep, if that counts....

    Sn:
    50kgx3
    55kgx3x2
    60kgx3x2
    65kgx3
    70kgx2
    75kgx1
    81kgx1x2 Post-injury PR's (sort of)*

    *I didn't stand up with either one because this is heavier than the one that hurt my knee yet I am weaker now than I was then, so I didn't want to risk re-injury. In competition though, both would have been good: the first one was a hair in front and I dropped it, but I could have stood up and took a step forward. The second one was perfect and I dropped it in a controlled manner at the bottom after holding it overhead for a few seconds to be sure.

    Pulls
    Eccentric snatch pulls:
    90kgx5
    100kgx5
    101kgx5 Forgot where I left off last time, oops... Pretty sure it was lower than 101 though.

    Snatch-grip deadlift:
    110kgx5

    Volume day: 135x5x5
    My last session ended at 157.5x5x3, roughly where I've stalled out repeatedly, so I did something exciting today and began a TM template for the first time ever. Hooray for me. I started conservatively and it felt a bit too easy. Can probably do 140 for next VD.

    Squat
    Front squat: 240x5x3
    Easy peasy. Knee recovery coming along very nicely.

    Just popping in to mention that I am comically sore from yesterday's first ever TM volume day, from my traps down to my calves. I did a bunch of pullups and bodyweight squats to loosen myself up and to double as a bit of light conditioning and left it at that.
