    Deadlift form still feels off. I'm probably going to switch back to converse shoes next deadlift day.

    Five hours of sleep but felt pumped anyway. Realized I need to let my knees come forward more on squats. Felt better today.

    Squat form felt good today. These were much easier than 295. Knees forward did the trick. I've also been stretching my hamstrings more. That might be contributing, too. I've made it a goal to be able to get into the third world squat position and sit there for an extended period. This goal remains elusive.

    Partner was a no-show.

    Decided to try some cleans today because the gym employee who's vigilant about discouraging snatches >obnoxious joke about his poor luck with women< was hanging out by the platform. Form was ok. Called it at 185 because my racking got a little iffy. Not significantly iffy, but a little iffy. I mean, I racked the 2 reps fine enough. I'm just trying to be careful because cleans always seem to contribute to my bicep tendonitis. So I called it a two. I hate cleans. I need to get better at cleans.

    Long day so I had an early workout. Had an out of town gig last night. Deadlifts were doh and in converse. My deadlift is kind of pathetic right now.

    First time I think I've legit failed a squat in a long time. I was visiting the low country and lifting in a garage. Guess I'll try for 320 again on Monday.

    Got to the gym late, deadlifted with a lopsided bar, and ran out of time before I could do squats. It was a banner day all around.

    My upper back, left side cramped on the 5th rep of the first work set, and I failed right at the top of my head. 4s were all I had in me today.

    Woke up in the middle of the night with a cold/sinus infection. Sleep wasn't the best, but I think I had a little leeway even considering these two factors because of my abbreviated workout on Monday.

    I switched back to my converse shoes for squats today both to see if the lack of heel would make my knee feel better and to start improving my ankle flexibility. Knee feels good (knock on wood).

    Power snatches performed without casualties on the "deadlift" platform.

    Mad bicep pain on bench today. Right arm was fried. Still sick.

    I'm going to start doing chins more frequently.
