    Hi. Making a log to keep track of my long-term progress. Started training olympic weightlifting seriously recently, learning by myself.

    Current stats:
    Age: 27, Weight: 102kg, Height: 1.81cm

    Recent PRs:
    Press: 87kgx5, 100kgx1
    Bench: 123kgx5 but stopped training it for now
    Squat: 234kgx5
    Deadlift: 262.5kgx5
    Snatch: 105kg
    Clean and Jerk: 145kg

    I'm running the TM/OLY hybrid from PP with some modifications.

    To start, my squat from yesterday's training session:

    SN 90 8x2
    CJ 120 10x1
    BP 90 3x8 figured I'd start to bench slowly again once a week.

    Poor start to my log -- gyms are being ordered to close here. Hopefully I can find somewhere to train, but doesn't look likely. Too bad people are being so crazy with the current situation.

    Found somewhere to train, at least for now. Not sure about doing any olympic lifting though. I've been sick, lost some bodyweight, new gym with different equipment -- so, as always -- time to LP back up!

    SQ 200x5
    DL 250x1
    PR 70 3x5 (have to clean the bar into position now)

    Starting my log back up -- no guarantees I'll keep it going, but I've been doing an awful job at even writing down my workouts and just have it all in my head which isn't ideal so hopefully I can stick with it.

    Today:
    SQ 242.5kgx3
    PR 83 x 5,3,3,3,5 (messed up reps because trying to figure out the double layback, and would just mess up some of the sets).
    DL 280x1 (PR for fun. Didn't want to do a heavy 5 rep set because I had done so 5 days ago already)

    all lifts from this workout are here: youtube

    Your tenacity despite the set backs is very admirable. You have a very bright future. I'm on the other end of the age scale but I find lifting very satisfying. I will attempt to keep up with your progress.

    Thank you -- but I enjoy lifting and have done it for so many years that it doesn't really take any tenacity, just something I'm used to doing.

    Today:
    SN:
    100x1
    105x0, 1
    110x1
    115x0, 0

    CJ:
    130x1
    140x1
    150x0, 0

    Standard shitty oly workout with no PRs. Happens all the time. My left shoulder is a little fucked up. It's internally rotated, hurts and is weaker than the right. Hence I cannot bench with a regular grip. You can see it collapse on this failed snatch:

    It does get stronger though... I just have to focus really hard on the snatch and jerk to prevent the collapse. I am quite happy with how my flexibility is progressing though.

    Random oly stuff today -- just fucked around.

    light snatches
    C&J up to 140
    Front squat up to 190. Failed 200. I'll try it again once my lowbar gets to like 260x3. I still don't see a reason to train the front squat.

    starting strength coach development program
    SQ 210x5x2 decided against the last set. Knees and hips pretty beat up from the last few days.
    PR 84x5x3
    w.Chins 28.5 x 5,5,4


    btw in case anyone who might read this log is wondering, I use weight x reps x sets notation.
