Notes: Had a terrible night's sleep.  Had thoughts of coaching running through my head and that is never a good thing.  Got back to bed at around 4am and I woke up feeling like I had just drank for a day straight.  

Knowing that I was amber, I didn't want to do anything to crazy today (felt lethargic anyway while warming up).  Didn't really have focus warming up for deadlifts.  Tried to get in a good position and go with the tempo.  395 was probably the most I had today, but with one set remaining went for 405.  Looking at the videos I don't think I was getting my butt low enough in my set up.  Never too mad when I get stuck above my knee (much better than not being able to get it off the ground).  

Warming up for back squats, I knew that it was going to be rough.  My quads were absolutely cooked.  Just wanted to push as hard as I could and not hurt myself in the process.  Hit 20 on the first set, 21 on the second (which crushed me), and 15 on the third (had nothing left in my legs).  Pullups were pretty good despite being a bit tired and also smashing my nose on the bar during the first set.  Tore my left hand in the palm on my final set.  Nothing too serious just the top layer and it stayed put.  Too much hand play today, caused more friction between my hand and the bar.  Dips were no problem.  

After the workout I was on the floor for a good ten minutes, writhing from the blood pooling in my biceps.  Afterward I did my 100 double unders.  Noticed that I am doing better keeping the grip relaxed, but I still have to be fast with the hands.

PM Training (cancelled)-amber, just going to take the afternoon off from training and work.
