Notes: Today was a polar opposite day from yesterday. While yesterday anerobic lactic workout that lasted over 15 minutes, today was a major creatine/phosphate(ATP) day. On these days it is most important to stay mentally acute throughout the workout. Taking in calories during this 2.5 hour workout is a must. Amino acids to repair breaking down muscle and maybe some dextrose to replenish muscle glycogen is not out of the question and is supported. I had a bit of a breakthrough with my snatch. I was tightening my arms on the third pull which didn't allow the bar to get back into a catch position. When I keep my arms relaxed on the way back and then push into the bar hard during the catch, I am able to get great positioning. I think I am just going to run tomorrow and give my brain a break after these two difficult days of training.
