Training: 2/18/2013

HRV: 102 (-2/green)
HR: 48

A. Back Squat: 2 x 2-3 @80-85%; rest 3 min (295,315)
B. Clean: 5 x 3,2,2,1,1; rest 4 min (245,255,265(1), 280 (fx2))
C. Clean Pull: 3 x; rest 15 sec/4 min (275,285,290)
D. Back Squat: 4 x 2-3 @80-85%; rest 3 min (315, 320, 322.5(2), 322.5(2))

Notes: Still a bit fatigued from from the weekend workouts.  Very cold this morning so it was challenging to warm up, but I didn't let it stop me from getting to work.  First set of back squats felt good, but I knew my legs and back hadn't recovered completely from Saturday.  I pushed hard today, knowing that every workout is important (and my HRV was green).  

Cleans felt good today.  The pull was strong and precise today, and I was racking the bar nicely.  
My sticking point was right above parallel today, and I think it was just because my brain was not firing right yet.  Focused on dropping the hip down and back as I continued up through the pull.  Felt good.

On second time around on back squats, I tried to go heavier than last week.  Was able to hit 320 for 3, a weight that I failed at last week.  Hit 322.5lbs. x 2 for 2 sets.  After I got done with my workout, I realized my lower lats were SMOKED from deadlifts on Saturday.  I have never been that sore the area.

PM Training:
10 min AD/mixed mobility warmup
Airdyne 40 sec @85%/20 sec @50% x 15 
AD 10 min @Z1
Avg. Watts: 394

Notes:  The other day, I accidently did 15 sets instead of 12 sets.  Today, I decided to move tomorrow's afternoon workout to today because I am going to be slammed with work on Tuesday.  Felt a bit better this time around, but the increase in time @ 85% and the decrease in rest time is just brutal.
