Power Clean

67.5 kg (148.5lbs): 3,3,3,3,3


160 kg (352lbs): 5,5,5,5,5


80 kg (176lbs): 5,5,5,5,5


  • Eating a lighter breakfast seem to make me less fatigue during the workout
  • Engaging in self-talk to hype myself up seems to work to get me through each set.  Especially squat.
  • Finally did 5x5 on press first try. Not sure if I can keep on making 2.5 kg jumps. Might be time to invest in fractional plates?
