Set a personal record in the deadlift today with 160kg. Then five minutes later I beat that record with 162.5kg
Then I decided to stop while I was ahead
Just got back from setting some PRs. 285# Back Squat and 195# Clean and Jerk, Snatch stayed the same. Man, I feel great - 285 is a 30# record and 195 is up 15#.
Jogged about 1.6 miles and walked another .6 miles. Working up to a 5k in a couple weeks, even though I don't think I'll be able to do the entire distance at a "running" pace. My goal is not to be the slowest guy in my age group.
It's a strange thing for me, since that 1.6 miles is the longest distance I have run in my adult life and probably in my entire life. When I learned to ride a bike, I stopped running except when forced.
It's not chronic cardio by any means, but it has made me realize how much running needs to be part of any fitness plan.
Kinda light on both to work form a bit.
135lbs on Cleans and damn does my form SUCK! The catch (rack position) is just not right. Keep hyperextending my wrists and generally just blowing that part. No big deal with this weight since I could just as well hold it just with grip and arm strength if I want, but a real issue if I'm gonna use higher weights. First time doing these though so I'm not all PO'd or anything. Just something to work on.

Sprinted for about 25 minutes today in the sunshine. My six year old son and his friend decided to join me on their own.

I can't wait to meet my abs for the first time in my life. We gotta lot of catching up to do.
I love this way of eating and hope to be able to help others.
Ran sprints with the kids until winded. Played frisbee/boomerang and walked to the food store.
3 x 5 x 315
Press: 3 x 5 x 145 (lots of layback and hip english, but no knee bend. Old school olympic style)
Power Cleans (Form work): 2 x 3 x 115, 5 x 3 x 120, 5 x 1 x 135. I can "muscle" a bit more than this, but trying to get the extension/jump thing to work so I can get these up to 185 or 200 where they belong.
