Notes: Body felt good heading into this workout but I was still a little tired from the workouts this weekend.  Tried not to prolong the warm-up as this usually exacerbates the problem.  During power snatches, I tend to extend the pull which throws me out of position in the catch.  The shoulders go too far back causing the hips to sway too far forward.  Missed 185 the first time because of it.  I came back and hit 185 and then went 190 focusing on continuing the pull under the bar into the catch.  Happy with hitting 190 for the complex.  Moved to the back squats, and they felt good today.  No real issues with the hips or back.  Hit 305 and then decided to push to 315 and hit it there too.  After designating that as my tough triple I dropped down to my 3sets of 7 at 88%.  Boy was this miserable.  I haven't done anything over 5 reps in quite some time and the last couple sets were a real grind.  Happy with hitting the weight for all three sets though.  Kept the same weight for all three sets on front rack split squats as my legs were pretty smoked from back squats.  Body rows are continuing to feel better as my mobility and activation of upper back muscles improve.  Felt good after the workout.

Notes: Hit this workout in the afternoon.  Felt good but I think I had the damper a bit too high.
