Training: 6/22/2012-"It's about damn time!"

AM Training:
A. Deadlift: 6,1,6,1 @ 21x1; rest 4min (315, 385, 335, 405)
B. Good Mornings: 3x6-8 @ 3111; rest 2:30 (95,105,115)

Notes: The third set of tempo deadlifts destroyed me.  I was happy to get 405 up, but boy was that a struggle.  Kept with clean grip the entire time just to keep balanced.  I am not sure if my deadlifting technique is 100% there, but I am caught between trying to strengthen my clean grip deadlift and being able to pull maximum loads in a workout.  By the end of the workout, my lower back was smoked.  Not tight, just smoked.

PM Training:
A. Snatch Grip Podium Deadlift: 8,8,16 @ 3111; rest 3min (185, 225, 155)
B. Rack Pulls: 3x3-5 @ 31x1; rest 3min (255, 295, 325)
1 set:
30 Plate Flips
60 Unbroken Double Unders

Notes:  I was smoked going into this workout.  My back was tender, I was physically exhausted, but I put the best effort I could up.  I focused on good technique and using the right muscle groups.  Tough to dig deep here, so I shied on the side of caution.  Might use a little lower podium next time on the SNGP (I was on a 10" elevation).  All in all a good day of training.
