4 Squat Cleans 225lbs

Time: 7:58

Notes: Got to the gym, hit some mobility, did some high box jumps and ball slams to get my CNS ready, and then built up to the weight for the workout.  Legs were a little sore from the double unders yesterday but all in all I was feeling pretty good.

My plan going into this workout was to be extra proficient on the rope climbs but not take any rest time between reps.  For the squat cleans, I would push the pace between reps and countdown from 5 before I picked the bar back up.  Workout felt good and I thought I paced it very well.  Only failed one squat clean on the final set and my squats were looking strong.

After getting home, I broke down the film.  The cool thing about doing the regional workouts is that I can put my video right up against the ones that were live.  I can see where I am different from the top competitors.  In this workout, it seemed I was a lot slower on my rope climbs and my transition from the run to the cleans was WAY too long.  It was averaging about 22 seconds from the time I got back from the run to the time I picked up my bar for the first rep.  I didn't take all that much time between cleans, but just getting my s*** together and starting takes me a while.  Now that I am aware of this, I can improve.   I think this is where when I workout on my own and when I compete I get overwhelmed.  I am not conscious of it but when I see other people aren't resting I don't rest.  Or maybe, this longer rest allows me to have shorts rests between reps.  When I am alone, I just use myself as the governor.  I guess this is good and bad but I need to get some exposure to competing so this doesn't become an unfixable habit.
