Notes: Definitely feeling tired going into the gym today.  Woke up earlier than normal and lied in bed for an hour so I was fresh getting up.  Got a good warm-up in before getting to a bit of technical work in the snatch.  Worked on getting more vertical and jumping through my heels on the pull.  I think the extension up was much better but I wasn't getting the bar back off the floor so I wasn't loading up my hamstrings.  Need to work on this a little bit and we will be back in business.  

Moved onto the tester and I was not feeling it going in.  Mentally I was pretty spent and I knew that the front squats were going to hurt.  I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to push the pace and not completely red line.  Not nearly as bad as the front squat bar muscle up tester from a couple weeks ago.  Broke up a few reps of front squats so I could catch my breath and tried to push the pace going into the muscle ups.  The rings were a little low for my liking so getting a pull kip was a bit of a challenge.  I just have to deal with it and adapt.  Hurt a little bit afterward, but wasn't too crushed.
