Notes: Coming into the last week of this cycle.  Woke up a little later than usual and my HRV was amber.  I kept it in check today during my workout.  It was easy given the fact that there was a lot percentage work.  

Felt pretty good today during training.  Not overly pumped up, but focused.  I wanted to move very efficient today and focus on the speed of the movements.  I have been learning that you don't need to max out to get stronger.  Back squats felt good.  Focused on keeping tension at the bottom.  Clean grip deadlifts felt light, and I know that my deadlift number could be bigger than last time.  Just feel much more confident with the technique.  

Push presses were rough.  The small rest time and tempo destroyed me.  The inner head of my triceps was screaming by the last set.  Focused on a strong vertical dip and drive.  For jerk dip squats, focused on keeping an upright torso while maintaining posture.  They felt heavy after the push presses, but good work overall.
