    Starting a log up here again.

    Was having a fairly productive run at training the past few months, lost a bunch of (unnecessary) weight during the first half of this year and my strength was on it's way back to matching fat PR's at 30-40 lbs lighter bodyweight. I also switched from squatting wide and (barely) parallel to close and deep in olympic shoes and had gotten my olympic squat numbers up to my previous high squat PR's. Unfortunately, I recently sprained my MCL and am having to take some time off of squats and pulls while it heals. This also means no running or jumping for the time being, which is equally frustrating, as I had just really begun to see progress in those areas, including a 4.7 second 40.

    Goals are to be as big, fast, athletic, and strong as possible. I want a 275 strict overhead press (clavicles to lockout), 500 lb belt only olympic squat, 50 inch box jump, and do it all while being in good enough shape that my lungs can handle 20 or so trips up the local hill.

    My training is a mix of some of my own ideas and Wendler's 5/3/1 programs, specifically his football book. I currently weigh in the mid to high 170's at 5 foot 7.

    A. Seated Throw- 14# x20

    B. Bench-
    warm ups
    190x5
    225x5
    250x5

    C. Hang Clean-
    warm ups
    95x5
    110x5
    125x5

    D. Incline Press- 185x8 x3
    E. Reverse Grip Bench- 165x12 x3
    F. Tate Press- 30x15 x2

    I can do hang cleans without my MCL bothering me as long as I wear the structural knee brace. Actually, not being able to fully extend my right leg because of the brace forces me to "swing and sweep" properly instead of triple extending, so my technique was better than usual.

          I'm tuned in.. Keep the log up. My goals have changed to be more similar to yours. Gotta be able to chase my son down in the future and throw him over a tree at the same time.

            Before this knee nonsense happened, I was considering trying out for the local arena and semipro football teams, but I think thats probably nixed unless this thing is a whole lot more benign than it appears to be. Still wanna get awesome, though.

                            Follow-up with the doctor tomorrow. The ability to fight my desire to start running again is waning. Hopefully this won't take much longer.
