4/17 - Did not sleep well and woke up stiffer than a virgin groom on his wedding night, so just a 20 minute yoga YouTube session today.

4/18 - Interval runs, 1 min walk/1 min sprint, 10 rounds. Core work later.

4/19 - Snatch, clean and jerk. Bad morning for the wife so I had to cut it out early so no bench or RDLs.

4/20 - Off day. Went to a wedding with the wife, danced a lot, good times.

4/22 - Back squats - 3x5 @ 225# (had to do this first as both platforms were being used). Heavy snatch, snatch + overhead squat, 95# for 5 singles. Medium clean and jerk, 115# one rep every 90 seconds, 5 rounds total. Bodyweight pull-ups, 4-3-2. Freaking sad how bad those suck due to the shoulder injury.

Just checking out the log man. I haven't been as active as I once was. I am trying to come around more. Welcome to the Den, always glad to have another Vet brother here.

4/24/24 - Strict press, 3x5 @ 95#, felt easy. Front squat, 135x5, 155x5, 185x2 - these felt way easier than I had planned so I went for big jumps. Seated row, 120x5, 130x5, 140x5. Lat pulldowns, 3x5 @ 140#.

4/26/24 -
  • Snatch (medium) - overhead squats with 45# for two sets to warm up, then 65# for 5 singles over 5 minutes - form felt pretty solid.
  • Clean and jerk (heavy) - Worked up to 145# for 5 singles, all felt pretty strong. Committing to the jerk a lot better already.
  • Bench press - 135x5, 145x5, 155x4. My shoulder does not like barbell benching anymore it seems like - trying DBs next time. And that's okay because I'd rather have a big jerk than a bench anymore.
  • RDLs - Worked up to 165x5. Not sure I like the barbell for this either, I did it before many times in the past but it seems after my herniated discs my back isn't a fan of it. DBs next time.
Then hiked a few miles with my boys around a lake.

I'm looking forward to following your journal, bud. I hope you do well with the power lifting. My advice is, if you can afford one, hire a good coach.

I hired a coach and started power lifting om 2012 when I was 47 years old and fat and fairly weak. Over the next few years, with good guidance from my coach I reached a 625 lb max dead lift a 385 lb max bench press and a 540 lb squat around 2016.

Coaches are awesome, that's some great work. Sadly my Olympic weightlifting coach passed away some years ago. There is a club a ways away from me, hoping to hit it up occasionally.
