HANG POWER CLEAN:
10@20kg
5@30kg
5@40kg
5@45kg
5@50kg
5@55kg ( +1 rep )
3@60kg
2@65kg ( +1 rep )
0@70kg
0@70kg ( extra set )
6@55kg ( +1 rep )
8@50kg ( +2 reps )
-More progress, very strong. However 2 failed PR attempts were close but not that close.

I need to find a way to break the 70kg plateau at HPCs, been stuck at it for ages. Checked log, last time i was in them again i was doing 65kg triples but still unable to to a single @70.
Volume dropsets like i do now are probably useless. Should do more near-max doubles and singles. Should also do some high pulls.
I like olifts very very much, i enjoy them, especially HPCs. And although it seems a very very long shot, I'd love to be able to clean 80kg.

Seems like a lot of volume there before you get to your PR attempt. Have you tried limiting the number of reps as you build up? I don't actually know the best way to do it but maybe you could try 10 with the bar, then 5 @ 30, 3 @ 40 then singles at 50, 60, 70 etc.

^^^ Thats true and i thought of it and implemented it in the past. There is a grey area though, between doing too much (fatigued) and too little (not prepared well) for 1RM, you gotta find the sweet spot. If i had to do a 1RM trial id do it your way 100%. But i like the current build up volume, with a daily max attempt, i would just like the daily max to be improving too. I think the 70kg wall is mostly mental though. I should detach myself from that, keep training and let it happen whenever it does, no rush, everything else is improving anyway. For now I'll replace the high volume drop sets with heavy near-max doubles&triples for starters. Thanks!!!

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : deltoids (?) and glutes, minor
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
Something was off. A bit slower, slower reactions too, more easily fatigued. Strength and vert were good again though. Want to do rim jumps. Must remember next time.

Just like last time, something was off again. A bit worse endurance. The same not fast and not quick. Still good strength and vert, strength was a bit better actually.
Its ok overall, much better than when i started in August, but this specific time with the deload i expected something better. Oh well, next time.
