Fucking gym removed the squat stands for no reason. I asked around why, no one could give me a proper answer. I'm going to talk to the owner to see if we can sort something out and just focus on deadlifts for a while. Fucking ridiculous.

Bulgarian split squats
1 x 5 @ 45kg
1 x 2 @ 50kg

Weighted pull-ups
1 x 27,5kg
4 x 1 @25kg
2 x 1 @22,5kg

Deadlift
1 x 5 @ 127,5kg

Went light, had a comp the next day (which went very well, got a new PB and getting closer to the national cut). I got my squat stands back, whoo!

Squat
1 x 5 @ 40kg
1 x 5 @ 50kg

Power Cleans
Lots of sets with an empty bar
2 x 3 @ 40kg

Learning Power Cleans, I really think these could be a very valuable addition.

Hurt my shoulder yesterday. Not too badly, just a bruise I got from a fall during a handball game. I couldn't do any upper body stuff and couldn't squat heavy comfortably so I just did

Squat
3 x 1 @ 90 kg
1 x 1 @ 95 kg

My psoas is also bothering my a bit during the squats, despite being careful to stretch it beforehand. Will try massaging it later.

Shoulder is still tweaky. Spent the whole week kicking in practice. So frustrating.

Complex:
A1. Squat
1 x 2 @ 85kg
A2. Jump Squats
6 @ weightless

Repeat 6 times.

The squats were a little heavier than usual due to fatigue from kicking. Psoas is better. Form was kind of shitty.

Same as Saturday.

Resting, so I decided to practice my power clean. Did loads of singles. Heaviest I went was 60kg I think. Will record for a form check soon.

Squat
3 x 5 @ 65kg

Press
3 x 5 @ 30kg

Power clean
5 x 3 @ 40kg

Weights are still coming up quite easily. But, better to start too low than too heavy!

Currently on a break from swimming, but I want to retain some conditioning. Did GPP #2, it was fucking awful. I didn't get up from the floor for almost 10 minutes afterwards.. I'd forgotten just how effective these circuits can be.
