HRV: 99 (1/green)-sitting up
A. COG SL Jumps: 4x1/leg; rest 20sec b/t
B. Bounding practice
C. Triple Jump Practice (7min)
D. Clean and Jerk: Build to heavy single + 5x1; rest 2min (use 85% of single)
E. Front Squat: 3,3,2,2,1,1; rest 2min (235,255, 270, 275(f)x2)
Notes: Felt a bit tired waking up today. Over the last three days I have been taking my HRV sitting up so I really can't go by the results for a weeks time. Had some pop warming up at the gym, but I definitely felt my CNS was fatigued. The jumping warm-ups felt pretty good, and my body felt fairly fresh however. Built up pretty slowly on the clean and jerks, and hit a smooth 265lbs., which is usually a tough grind for me. Good sign that I can now hit 265 consistently. Decided to make a big PR jump rather than trying to go sub-maximal again, but my brain was just not having it. Missed the rack on the first try and then got buried on the second try. When I bottom out with a heavy weight, that is all she wrote. I dropped down to 280, put a solid pull on it, but just couldn't quite get passed that stick point. Again, I think the volume and intensity over the last few weeks has just beaten me down, but I remain optimistic that after de-loading I will have the ability to go 280+. Also thinking about just sticking to a power clean at next week's competition so I don't get buried again. Technique is there, but just have to have the brain/body behind it.
Was shot after my first double front squat. Had nothing left mentally. Just going to ride this wave and hope that on the other side I am stronger than where I started.
