Strict pull-ups and Press has suffered because I have neglected them. My back squat is feeling solid and will be back up to 130kg x 5 in time. From there I am just looking at getting stronger. Pat hit a bodyweight Press the other day which is amazing...I am setting a goal to get one within a year!
Today was frustrating. 80kg went up easy, but I didn't get it on video. I then attempted 85kg and failed. I next moved down to 82.5 but could not stick it. Above are some video's, input from anyone is welcome and appreciated. I have more videos of misses if required.
It's nice when someone else makes up your workout. Pat and I had a good discussion about training via email. My training is going to be a lot different than his and vis versa just because of our lifestyles. Although, I took a page out of Pat's programming today.

I like the work rest ratio. It is a page out of OPT's book. I have been meaning to chat with him about this because he does it with his athletes often. He is a busy guy but next time I see him I will inquire about this.
I like the short 1 x 4. I think it may work for me. I also like the max effort days so I will continue those as well. Following anyones programming right now is not going to work for me (performance menu, main page etc.) I am having a hard time being a good employee, coach and athlete. I will focus on being a good employee so I don't lose my job and coach because it is what I love doing. As for being a great athlete, right now I am just going to have fun, pick stuff I want to do and try and focus on stuff I suck at.
