    Had the 4 metal pins removed from my hand last Friday - should be able to bench/do pull ups/ice cream makers again soon!

    Have been doing linear gains 3x a week with my squatting - goal is to max 300 lbs+ by New Years by doing 5# weekly progressions

    Benched for the first time last week - 3 x 3 at 205

    Amazing how fast bench press disappears! Looking back on this log I was doing

    Bench Press: 3-3-3-3-3 @230# before I hurt my hand. Looks like I have a[nother] good goal to get to by new years...

    That's actually not much loss. I've found that bench comes back pretty fast when I'm forced to take time off.

    Thanks Anthony

    1 rm BS (high bar): 305# - 10# off of my PR - hopefully i can get back to 315 - 320 by New Years - I guess that's my next goal.

    Did some light snatches today at 95# - first time in about 8 months. Bottom position and mid-transition feels kinda weird with the knee - and my grip strength and upper body/core strength unused to power. I want to spend this month getting up to snuff for oly to get back to functional capacity by New Years.

    Fat bar deadlifts at ~190# ; trying to strengthen that right hand.

    For the foreseeable future no crossfit just brute strength and oly.

    Still at it - in January I started a rigorous 8 week program that I wrote myself (3x a week squatting, with Bench, pull ups, snatch, cleans and more) - three more weeks left on it; I'll post it here afterwards. I'm up to 210 lbs right now and my lifts are probably about 10% off where they were this time last year (before ACL surgery and hand surgeries). Forcast is that this Spring and Summer TFC will be officially out of hibernation.
