    Friday 16.8

    Power snatch some sets of 2 with 40 kgs, just for fun. Less fun was that it strained my right shoulder and also I got some pain in the chest from it, most likely due to not doing these very often. Also, using a TPB is not to recommend for this lift, kills the wrists. If I had extra money I would invest in a weight lifting bar.

    Sunday 18.8

    Squat 1x90, 5x100, 5x102,5, 5x105 kgs (paused reps)
    5x105 kgs
    RDL 2x 8x100 kgs

    Maybe I'm on the right track again, This all felt rather easy, and the Thing I changed was simply to remember to press air into the diaphragm and stomach before going down. The bottom position felt really stable, almost like I could have sat there for a while, before pushing up. The hole has been a weak spot for many months now and I have not been able to sort out why, but now it felt like it should. When pushing air into the diaphragm the belly rises a bit, you can see that the belt moves up a bit in the mirror (which I do have and do use), and the back becomes more straight (less arched). This all seems to be a contradiction as SS only speaks about arching the back etc. etc, but for me, being rather skinny and using a high bar position I have not found that especially useful. This could be due that I have not had a problem with rounding the back, as I have a natural arch, maybe a bit exaggerated, so my problem has more been that of over-arching.

    Tuesday 20.8

    BP 3x 4x92 kgs, paused reps.
    BP (wide grip) 5x87 kgs.
    DBR 3x 10x35 kgs

    The right shoulder is still sore from the snatches I tried last week. Bad idea, but luckily it seems to be getting better day by day. During the wide grip press I however noticed it so therefore I did only one set. Should also stretch more...

    The BP otherwise was solid again, and I will increase the weight some for next session.

    Friday 23.8

    Squat 2x90, 1x100, 1x110, 3x120 kgs
    Halting DL 5x140, 2x 5x145 kgs

    was not feeling well, some flu or something. Sweating a lot etc. and some pain in the back already when warming up. So considering this, the session went pretty well.

    Monday 26.8

    OHP 3x 10x30 kgs
    High pull 3x 5x90 kgs

    Pain in the right shoulder still. Was a bad idea to try the snatches. But hopefully it will pass in some days. Also not well yet, sweating a lot and quickly tired.

    Wednesday 28.8

    Squat 3x 105 kgs (paused reps)
    RDL 2x 8x100 kgs
    Abs 20xbw

    The shoulder still hurts some but it did not affect the squatting much. I still notice the flu but this did go pretty well anyhow. Quite warm weather alsoalmost hot. Some reps became a bit like good mornings but there was a nice pause on every rep. Noticed that when the weight gets more on the heels in the bottom position the hips rise faster than the shoulders, so keeping the weight on the middle of the feet would be a target to remember.

    Monday 2.9

    BP 3x 2x97 kgs (paused)

    BP 2x 5x89,5 kgs
    Pullup (10 kgs) 3x5

    Was a bit careful with benching as the right shoulder is not 100% yet. No pain at all however. long pauses on chest, good form.

    Wednesday 4.9

    Squat 2x100, 2x110, 3x120 kgs
    DL 2x120, 1x140, 1x145, 4x155 kgs (think it was 4, lost count, felt heavy, could have been 5)
    6x140 kgs

    The squats went OK, the last two reps on 120 were a little bit of good mornings, but overall I had good control, could have pushed for more but I take my time now. First rep went really well, surprised me a bit. The dead lifts felt heavy, tired hands. Have no idea why. Maybe 155 DL after doing squats is some sort of breaking point? Could have rested some more between the exercises maybe.

    Friday 6.9

    OHP 3x 10x40 kgs
    Power clean 4x70 kgs
    High pull 3x 5x 90 kgs

    Right shoulder still not 100%, so I used light weights. Three times ten with 40 kgs was not that easy however. Tried to get the pulls higher so I stayed at 90 kgs. Felt good the day after.

    This felt really heavy today. Tired somehow. I noticed this also in the weekend, when doing some work in the garden. Also the RDL felt heavy.
