    PS: sorry, just realised how dumb my suggestion was, you already put up a video of your cleans.
    I don't consider that video of acceptable quality. I'm getting ready to ship out for four months so my priorities have been elsewhere. I bought my kids a Webbie (video cam) and have asked them to find it for me but it's obviously not a priority for them (LOL) (could I have some cheese with that?) I hope to find a camera while I'm deployed that I can use so I can get some help from you kind folks. There might even be someone there who does these lifts... that would be cool.
    My stomach is starting to get nervous about the whole thing, but soon I'll be in a new groove... and all of the free food I can eat.
    Still, if you can make anything out from that video that would be sweet. It actually looks impressive because it seems like I just wink and the bar is racked.

    Thanks!

    the video is really a bit too jerky for me. And to be honest, even if it were good, I don't think I can comment on anything beyond the most glaring faults in a PC lift.

    Good luck with your deployment. I hesitate to ask you where to because one dumb question a day should really be enough.

    Ok, I think I've got it. It was actually quite obvious.
    Good luck again.

    Friday: Intensity
    Weighed in at 191.5 lbs
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Squats: 1x5x262.5 (PR)
    Bench: 1x4x203
    Power Cleans: After warm-ups, 5 failed attempts to rack 148lbs.

    Wanted 5 reps on bench, but after focusing on upper body form, forgot to space my hands wide enough so I ended up narrow benching these.
    What can I say about the Power cleans. I'm buying a video cam tomorrow but it'll be a while before I can get a video posted.
    Drowned my PC sorrows afterwords with some friends that I won't see for 4 months. 1554 to drink. I think my glycogen is restored.

    I'm sitting in the airport now. So blogging will be sporadic.
    Let me know if you have any advice on my lifts or on coaching my son (he's fully aware I'm not a qualified coach).

    Thanks.

    Wednesday:

    Ended up stuck in a hotel where I'm not supposed to be. Checked out the fitness center. They had some dumbells and a cheap barbell set with no rack. Managed to do some front squats with around 45Kg, which is all they had. Also practiced some power cleans with that weight.
    I'm stuck here for two full days. Breakfast was a buffet, so that went well!

    What the hell am I going to do in this hotel for two friggin days?

    At least I've made it through security so far with all of my gear. Glad our special gear requirements don't include liquids and aerosols.

    Ended up eating something bad at breakfast or lunch... the joys of traveling to strange lands.

    This is what passes for art when you are stuck inside a hotel for two days. This is some of the essential stuff I packed into my one carry on bag for 120 day visit to a strange part of the world.
    Not shown is the video camera I used to take the picture.
    Hopefully they've got plates larger than 1 1/4 lbs.

    I'm really bored and going crazy here as you can probably tell if you are reading this.
