Weight Lifting Session for Fun

OK, so here is the lifting session I have been doing about twice a week for my legs and jumping power. I fit my training in between my personal training clients, so I do it fast with as little rest as I can cope with. The lifting I will complete with in about 40 min max. For warm-up I do 2000m rowing or 10 min X-trainer, also 1 min petella (knee cap) massage each leg. Due to my weight lifting shoes being lost in the post to Norway (very upset as they were signed by Steve Smith, UK high jump record holder), I only use regular trainers and no wrist straps. My goal is to clean 100+ kg before I am 30 yrs old at the end of August 2009. Then my session, at 75 kg body weight, is:

Barbell complex 20 kg 1 set of 10 reps
Over head full squat 20 kg 1 x 10

60 kg 1 x 8
80 kg 1 x 4
85 kg 1 x 3
95 kg 1 x 2

Full Squat (fast acceleration all the way up)
40 kg 1 x 10
60 kg 1 x 10
80 kg 1 x 10

90º Squat
100 kg 1 x 10
120 kg 1 x 10

Full Squat Wide Stance (fast acceleration all the way up)
60 kg 1 x 10
40 kg 1 x 10

Calf Raises From Step (fast and full range – 30 sec rest)
60 kg 1 x 20
80 kg 1 x 20
100 kg 1 x 20
80 kg 1 x 20
60 kg 1 x 20

15 min X-Trainer + Physio Ball sit-ups 10 kg x 100 reps
