Max front squats 3-3-3-3-3

It seems that Sunday's are becoming a strength day, and I for one am a ok with that. I love strength days and I'm ok with that. Last week when we were doing hang squat cleans I hit 140 but got stuck trying to get up with 145. So, I wasn't really sure where this one was going to lead, it's been a awhile since we've done much front squating, and I own my weakness which is my legs. Particularly my hamstrings and gluteus maximus. :P So, I was hoping to get 135 and I did. So then I was really hoping to get 140, which I did. So then I was really hoping to get 145, which I did not. It seems that 145 is my sticking point right now. My hamstrings and core just aren't strong enough. Always something to work on isn't there? My rounds looked like this.

65 X 3
85 X 3
105 X 3
115 X 3
125 X 3
130 X 3
135 X 3
140 X 3
145 (F)
145 (F)

140 was a PR, so I was happy with that, but man, it would have been nice to hit 145. Curses... maybe next time... maybe next time... :)

Oh! But I almost forgot about the finisher! Ah yes... the finisher...

10 KB high pull (50lbs)
10 jumping lunges
10 push ups

Jumping lunges after max front squats? I swear Jerry is a masochist at times.... I still love 'im though... :)
