    Hockey match yesterday. Scored 2, won 6-2. Hocket match today, scored 1, drew 2-2. Fitness quite bad, but running pretty hard. Ankles seem mostly alright. Can't really handle the heat atm with sport.

    Pullups-4,10,10,10,10,10

    First set of 4 was because my brother wanted to go through the door. Only a week or two without these and this was so much harder than before. Grip was going pretty quickly too.

    Back at college now. Decided to follow a 20 rep squat type format for a bit.

    Squats
    50kg*20,10

    Pullovers
    15kg*20

    Press
    20kg*10
    40kg*10,10,10(set of 5 pullups after each)

    Curls
    10kg*10,10,10

    Killing really. Press was really hard, but I did the first set dead stop every rep which probably didn't help. Curls hard, but I did them super slow, trying to get the mind-muscle connection(something I remember The Blind Monk mentioning for the guns). Squats not too bad, but midway through press my quads were beginning to go.

    SLDLs
    100kg*15

    DB Bench(set of 8 pullups* after each set)
    20kg*10
    22.5kg*10
    25kg*10

    DB Curls
    10kg*3*10

    Abs
    20 toe touches, 20 v-sits

    Don't really know if I was doing SLDLs right, and had a brief gap at rep 7 or 8 when I tried to sort out keeping my back straighter. Legs felt this, otherwise not so bad.

    Didn't have any sleep last night as I was working through it, so not too bad considering. Squats quite hard, curls at the end pretty hard. The rest not so bad.

    Played maybe an hour-hour and a half of frisbee today...bit unfit, or at least, didn't run around that much. Will try harder in future.

    Cycled maybe 5 miles.
    Played some water polo. Was fun, and I seemed less unfit than last time I played it, even managed some stuff.
    Gym:

    Squats
    20kg*10
    60kg*20

    Pullovers
    15kg*20

    OHP(each workset followed by 5 pull ups)
    20kg*10
    30kg*5
    45kg*10,10,9

    SLDL
    100kg*15

    Curls
    12.5kg*10,10,10

    Abs
    30*toe touches
    20*v-sits


    Gutted on OHP. Coulda made it with a lot of struggle I think, but felt a touch light headed halfway as well as the bar veering away from the right path. Probably need to fix form. Will probably go to 47.5kg next time but drop to going for 8,8,8. Hamstrings felt like they might cramp earlier, so was glad to get squats and SLDLs. Legs felt like jelly by the end though. Curls not too bad.

    Quick, casual session.
    Clean and push press
    20kg*some
    40kg*some
    50kg*3-4
    60kg*1,1,1
    65kg*1,1
    70kg*1,1
    72.5kg*1
    (no push press on second 70kg or the 72.5kg)

    Snatches
    20kg*some
    30kg*3
    40kg*5
    Fell on my ass trying to do 40 kg, then subbed for not squatting down but just standing up with the bar thrown above my head. Seemed to work.

    Technique on cleans a bit better I think, but still needs some work. Technique on push press definitely needs work.
