Notes: Got a good night's sleep last night and had good energy heading into the workout. Need to watch the count on the tempo, so I broke out my tempo trainer and used it on my 50X0 bench press with full 5 second negatives. Definitely changes things a bit and I know this is how I have to go if I want to make the gains quickly. Lean-away chin-ups are always challenging and I sometimes feel most of the strain in my lower back, trying to stabilize the midline. Rope climbs were tough on the grip today. I was only able to sneak in two sets of powell raise at the end of the workout.
