Notes: Today was my first day of my training next training cycle. Before I started, I made a pact for this month to get a minimum of 8 hours sleep every night. That means when I have to wake up at 5:25am on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I am going to be in bed by 9:25pm. I have been reading a lot about the effects of sleep on not only hormones and carb sensitivities, but also performance. On the other days I will be get a full 9 hours.

This workout was tough! Lots of touches with heavy weights, but I really liked it. I feel I need this stuff.....a lot! Unfortunately today, my power clean technique was struggling. Was leaning back too much and not extending through the hips and knees. I will work on this with light weight tomorrow to get in a better groove.
Slugged down 30g of BCAA along with coconut water during the workout.
