Like IW said...it seems like you are swinging from one extreme to the other. Oh well....It's your routine and if you are meeting your goals then good for you, dude.

I had some doubts today so I decided to test my strict press to see if I make any progress.

Workout N8 : Strict Press 57kg

That's +2kg compared 17 days ago. I also did a Power Clean with 73kg and failed to push press it (I got a partial rep). The strict press probably exhausted too much my push muscles. I'll take one week off after thoses max efforts and resume training at 80% of my PC&PP, with around 59kg. This workout increased my confidence in the program. I'll continue and I hope I'll be able to continue to gain strength at this rate which would allow me to make a new PR in less than 2 months.

Workout N9 : PC&PP 59kg

After 6 days off I decided to train again. It should be enough to recover from my last workout (maximum effort). I'll continue to train once every 3 days and around the 22 september I'll test my 1RM again. I'll probably attempt 60kg (+3kg compared to the 23 august) in the Strict Press. Let's see what happend. I may also test my max on Strict Curl and One Leg Squat !

Hello hrdgain, I saw you are a very strong guy ! Glad to see you are intested in my training I hope your shoulder is ok now.

Workout N10 : PC&PP 59.5kg

the PP felt very easy, I'll might already be able to do a strict press with 59... My technique on power clean is very bad but I don't care : bad technique = lower weight BUT not less muscles work. As long as I can "power clean" enough to match my PP it's ok.

Workout N11 : PC&PP 60kg

I was a little bit tired today, I had not the feeling of power I had the last workout. With such a hard exercise you strength somewhat depends of your condition (sleep, stress, etc).

You can let your form slip a little but be very careful with that because you don't want it to get so bad that you injure yourself. Proper form is "proper" for a reason. --> Safety.

Workout N12 : PC&PP 60.5kg

Iron you are right. I would never allow my back to round on any pulling exercises ! I did it once on deadlift and I had lower back pain for over 6 months.

I went out this week end and didn't sleep much and the workout was not as easy as it should... I'll sleep well this week to be full of energy again.

I'm back for 2009. I hope things will be better this year. I resumed training with the same principle : One Single at 70-80%.

I did two workouts :

Workout n1

Deadlift : 129kg
Standing Press : 44kg
Curl : 17.5/21kg

Workout n2

Standing Press : 44.5kg
Deadlift : 130kg
Curl : 17.5/21kg

On both Deadlift and Press I do a single at 75-80% of my actual 1RM and on Curl I test 1x80% right arm versus 1x70% left arm too see if I can get the same results with 70% insteed of 80%. I train 2x per week.
