    Session 6
    Squat: 270lbs 3x5
    OHP: 120.5lbs 3x5
    Clean 110 5x3

    BW still at 181lbs

    Elbow hurt again when doing the thumbs on top of the bar. No idea why. I had to switch to wrap my thumb around the bar. I can understand why it's a suboptimal position (weight more in the hands, bar less secure, wrists under greater strain), but I just cannot get my left thumb on top of the bar without pain in the elbow.

    Filmed my clean today and noticed I was doing exactly what Rip said I shouldn't. I was bending my elbows too damn early and losing force production.

    Told you it was gonna be a pain in the ass


    This just came out, it might help you with your elbow problem, probably has to do with grip width

    Session 14

    Squat 295 (3x5)
    Press 130 (3x5)
    Power Clean 125 (5x3)

    Weights are feeling good. Ended up going back to a regular grip on the squat. I was fighting elbow pain too much on the thumb-less grip.
