Within the last year, my training has been directed a lot towards general weightlifting strength, endurance and ability. Some of my favorite progressions:
- 1 rep max Deadlift: 275 lbs to 375 lbs in 4 months;
- Power Clean & Jerk : 135 lbs up to 195 lbs 1RM in 6 months;
- Clean & Jerk : Ditto;
- Push Press : 12 642 lbs to 61 305 lbs in Volume (200+ reps @ 115 lbs in 20 minutes)
- Plate Curl: 25 lbs with each hand

In the recent weeks I’ve felt an intrinsic need to alter my focus towards more of my bodyweight goals of strength and ability. The arrival of summertime definitely is part of the factors in this change.
