    Lool there's guys here (on the fitness blog forum) who bang 100kg+ for reps

    You should look into making a blog if you're serious about lifting, its not a bad place to get advice. Reddit is good too...gotta maximise them beginner gainz
    I was thinking about doing that, but I'm kinda embarrassed to post how much I can currently lift :/

    I don't wanna get immensely swole or anything, just wanna put on a bit of muscle... kinda want a physique like this dude we both know

    Deadlift:
    60kg x3
    80kg x3
    100kg x5
    110kg x2
    120kg x1
    125kg x1
    130kg x1
    135kg x1
    140kg X (grip failed, forgot chalk)
    80kg x3 (sumo)

    Surprised at how "easy" 135kg was though, means I haven't lost much (if any) strength during this cut (esp as I've been fasting too)

    It happens, strict press can be difficult to add weight on, add volume to lighter weights and it should budge

    Yeah I'll probably just do load of AMRAP sets at the end and start doing push press again as I'm back on a program from Monday

    Snatch Balance:
    30kg 5x3

    Snatch:
    25kg 6x3

    2 misses on full snatch but its coming off my hip now. So now its just a matter of regaining my snatch balance with the wider grip as my pulls are more developed, and I'm looking to make a PR in about 5-6 weeks.

    Personal cues: LOOK FORWARD ON EXTENSION, RELAX SHOULDERS/TIGHT BACK
