    Decent enough session this afternoon.

    Squats:

    140 x 3

    Quite hard, but looking back I have not squatted for a while (in fact, not lifted for a while...).

    Dumbbell bench press:

    30s x 7/6/6

    Feet on the bench. Quite hard.

    Power cleans:

    80 x 3/3/3/3/3

    Quite easy to be honest. Enjoyed these.

    Then home.

    Makes it harder as you're less stable.

    Okay session tonight. Getting back into it by doing 3x5 to get the strength up.

    Squats:

    120 x 5/5/5

    Okay during the sets, but legs tired afterwards - probably from the three sets.

    Press:

    62.5 x 5/5/5

    Quite hard.

    Deadlifts:

    170 x 5

    Very hard. Probably because my legs were tired.

    Decent enough session tonight, fairly quick.

    Squats:

    125 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad at all.

    Deadlifts:

    172.5 x 5

    Quite hard, but a little easier than last time. Made a smaller jump because I'm not sure how I'd have coped with a 5kg jump.

    Then home.

    Squats:

    127.5 x 5/5/5
