Training: 5/1/2013

HRV: 100 (-/green)
HR: 52


A. Snatch: build to a heavy single (205lbs.)
B. Clean: 3 x 1.1.1; rest 3 min - moderate effort on these (195,215,225)
C. Split Jerk from blocks: 4 x 1 @85%1RM; rest 90 sec (267.5)
D. Front Squat: 3 x 3 @75%1RM; rest 2 min (227.5)

Notes: First day lifting heavy since starting my deload.  Also my first day having caffeine in three days.  Snatches felt pretty good warming up, but I didn't realize until afterward that I wasn't dropping and extending but rather letting the hips drift forward.  Came close a bunch of times with 215 but just couldn't stand up with it.  Cleans felt pretty good though I was bumping the bar out with my hips a little (again need to drop the hip and extend).  Split jerks felt pretty good. I need to tinker around with being a little bit more agressive in driving into the bar with my arms as I drop down quickly.  I feel that they are heavier than usual.  Front squat felt good though I felt my torso inclined forward a bit.

****went to sleep last night and I had an itch attack.  I felt itchy all over my body and couldn't get to sleep.  It wasn't anything I was wearing or detergents.  Perhaps it was something I ate?  I had some cheese on my burger at dinner.  Maybe a reaction from caffeine? Hmmmmm.....
