I've never had 260# on my back before. Gonna be a little frightening, although my projected 1RM indicates I should be good for at least 3 or 4 reps. To be seen.
Maybe power cleans after that fun. Depends on how late I get started.
Edited: Got 5 reps with the 260. Last one was a grind. GRRRRIIIIND. 9 reps on bench with the 180. Really wanted 10. Had to leave the bar on the pins. Power cleans: A few sets of 3 with 135. A single with 145. A single with 155 that felt really good/right/pure. Went for 165. Probably would have racked if I'd gotten under it better, but I think I pulled it with my arms. Would have been a PR, although it still seriously lags behind my other lifts. Oh well. Ate a huge venison steak.
Getting back in the weight room after my stomach bug. So I took Jim Wendler's advice (author of 531 books) and continue my cycle as planned. Still trying to decide whether to compete the last weekend in February or the first weekend in March. Just warmed up thoroughly and then did squats my top set being belt less and my back chalked was 280 for 5 reps. Singles starting Thursday.
