First time round just have a play around maintaining your form. They can be a little tricky. Elbows high, chest up, stick back, drive through the heels...yadda, yadda, yadda.
Use the clean grip, it's more bad-ass.
clean grip is so hard to do! i just can't get my arms under it, fail flexibility i think.
Thanks for the tip, legs will probobly be on Friday or this weekend sometime.

Comments: Really good session, PB on deadlifts, and i still had more in the tank, will definitly be able to do 150 next time. Hands got ripped to hell though! Bit gutted i didnt get the last 2 power cleans but oh well.
10min distance intervals
200m in less than 50s
Nothing too crazy, wasn't feeling all up for the gym, went a lot earlier than I normally do and didn't really have a decent amount of sleep. Got a good sweat on during the treadmill sprints. Legs tomorrow maybe.
First time ever doing front squats so i guess it's a pb lol. I used the clean grip, and this MURDERED my wrist, had a lot more in the tank, could easily probobly do over 90, but my wrists were killing lol. I'll try the crossed arm grip next time I think, and work on stretching my wrists.
Bit of a weird leg session, did some exercises I don't normally but the variation was good, and I can definitly feel it in my legs today, was a good session overall.
Shoulders felt good too, would have liked to get that last rep on military press but oh well.
Went to the gym today to do cardio and it's closed cos of a power cut! Fuming. So today is my day off, cardio tomorrow probobly.
Not sure why but i've just decided to up my 5 rep PB's in these two weeks lol. I feel i've definitly got more in the tank than these lifts, only problems I can see are the bench and military press. I feel the rest are within my reach.
I was originally going to try them all in one week, but this week i've got a rugby match wednesday, so will need a day or two to recover after that.
At the moment my 5 rep max's are the lifts in black, and the red lifts are what I will be aiming for. Some are increased by 2.5 kg (smallest increment at my gym, 2x 1.25kg plates), and some by 5kg. I feel I can definitly squat and dl 5kg more, the others are more difficult hence only the 2.5kg increase.
