Notes: Nice day of training. Had trouble getting to sleep last night again (this has been consistant lately). Had decent energy going into the workout knowing that I would get to try out some speed lifting for the first time since regionals. The HPC was a nemesis for me at the regionals, so I really wanted to go after the reps. Hit the regional weight for an easy 4. This definitely excites me this early in a training cycle (and the new year). Worked on keeping the hook grip to prevent having to re-grip after each rep. Didn't let me get my elbows all the way around on a few yeps, but it is something I hope to get used to.
Back squats felt heavy today, bench felt light. Warmed up for about 10min for the prowler sprints (building the weight, interval, and intensity). I am going to make a concerted effort to not ruin my lactate work because I didn't properly warm-up. Right from the get-go , I tried hard to push all out for the prowler sprints. There was no significant drop off or increase from set to set. Steady. It's good to be getting into a fresh cycle.
