Notes: Had a decent night's sleep last night but I was feeling a little off mentally. Got to gym and got a good warm-up in. Noticed that my strength felt good, but mentally was just not there. My body just wouldn't respond. Could have been lack of rest this weekend, or it could be just a low in training. Squats felt heavy today. I find that higher reps/tempo are fine, but just putting a heavy bar on my back is HARD. Bottom of squat just isn't strong on the eccentric. Once I get below parallel, I can't really stop the bar. Felt good on the set of 10 though, hitting a solid, tough weight.
Hang power cleans were a little off today. Not staying back and through my heels as I bring my hips through, throwing the bar out a bit.
*** through in some C.o.C. training between sets of back squats. 5reps with #1 each hand between sets. After the workout I did 3 sets of wrist roller w/ 30lbs. Going to be throwing this in the twice a week during lower body workout.
