Training: 3/20/2013

HRV: 100 (-5/green)
HR: 54


A. Snatch: heavy single, then 3 x 1 @80% of that (~1 min rest) (175,190,200(fx4))
B. Clean & Jerk: heavy single, then 3 x 1 @80% of that (same) (270,282.5)
C. Paused Back Squat: build to a heavy triple @23X1 (285)
D. Reverse Hyper: 3 x 15-20; rest 90 sec (incomplete)

Notes: Never a dull day in training, and I never know what kind of day it's going to be heading into a workout.  Some days I feel great and train like crap, other days I have to convince myself to workout and those days are on fire. Snatch technique is getting better every time I lift.  I may not be hitting huge weights, but I think it's one of those "two steps back, five step forward" deals.  The catch feels very good until it gets to about 195lbs., and then my shoulders can't handle the load.  Just need to rest the shoulders but I will let that happen when I need to.

Cleans have been feeling better and better over the last weeks.  I think there are two factors here: 1. improved pull and 2. ankle flexibility. I have been working ankle mobilization daily since I am lifting every day.  My squat feels much more upright and it seems easier getting up out of the hole.  Life-time best today, so can't complain with that (not to mention I think I have more to come).  Went 10lbs. heavier on paused back squat than last week.  Good training session.
