Notes: I left my heart rate monitor in the living room so I didn't bother taking my HRV today. I felt pretty good, and body felt surprisingly fresh.
Warmed up with some jump roping and slam balls. Then hit a bit of mobility. I think my brain was not working because I thought that this workout was not going to be that taxing. I figured I would be going much heavier than I did, but boy was this workout tough. Started lighter, but the little tweak in technique that I have been practicing hasn't quite taken hold yet. I can see when I miss that the hips go to the bar, but I think this happens because I don't push far enough back with the bar, and as I initiate the pull, my hips travel forward.
I tweaked my form on my back squats pushing the hips back and staying back to load more of the butt and hamstrings. This felt solid today, but I am not sure if it allows me to stay as vertical. I will play around with it some more. Box jumps felt very good. Petersen step ups were okay. Tough on the quads, but nothing crazy.
