Achievement(s):
Power Clean: 145 lbs x 3 Personal record on 6/10/12!
Overhead Press: 145 lbs x 1 Personal Record on 6/8/12

Notes:

Not much changes on the estimated 1RM as I was not able to break through records in that way this month.
Nearing my personal maxes and everything is getting much more difficult to do.
I was at least able to get some PR on the power clean and overhead press by doing the heaviest I have ever done this month!

Also completed 1 month of Paleo Diet (technically it is 1 month and 1 week).
I think I may be eating a little less than I should be and that is what is causing me to almost stall in my lifts.
Need to eat a little bit more and get some more quality rest in hopes of gettting my lifts up in numbers.

The paleo diet that I am experimenting on seems to have some good results so far.
Noticeable changes everywhere on my body physically and my energy level is up, when I do have some decent rest times.
Definitely can’t wait how the results will be in 2 more months when I finally get my annual check-up and get my labs done to complete this experiment.
