It's Amazing What Can Happen In As Little As Two Months

Just got back from the platform. Right now I'm engaged in a H-M-L strength cycle as that's all my schedule will allow. Two months ago, I went to Palm Beach and started my training session with 315/5 x5 with 2 minutes rest on the Back Squat. That was new "re-mobility" territory. It was a heavy day.

Today, I hit 140kg/5x5, with 2 mins rest (essentially the same weight) as the "light" part of the training session, after Snatch Grip DLs and Military Presses. And it felt even easier and faster than it did 2 months ago, despite being last in the rotation.

I was just thinking today that I was at my strongest between ages 21 and 25--then things started to break. Now, being "re-mobilized," I feel like I'm about 4-6 months away from reaching those peak strength levels. This truly excites me.

Today's session:

A. Snatch-grip DL: (140kg/3, 150/3, 160/3, 170/3) x2; 2 mins rest
RPE= 8 maybe at the 170kg. Plenty of room left here.

B. Military Press: 80kg/4 x6; 2 mins rest.
RPE= 7-ish. Also plenty of room here.

C. BSQ: 140kg/5 x5; 2 mins rest.
RPE= 7. Fast and easy.

Tomorrow, Z and possibly some 2H KB Swings.
