Training: 12/6/2013




HRV: 99 (-/green)
HR: 55

AM Training:
45min Z1 Airdyne (get off every 5min and perform 5 bar body rows and 20' HS Walk)
Complete

Notes: Finished first thing in the morning.  Felt tired afterward and sleepy throughout the day.  

PM Training:
A. Squat Snatch: 8-10 singles, build from 65%-85%, RAN (195 x 10singles)
B. Back Squat: 5 x 3,2,1,2,1 @20X0, rest 3 min (75,77,80,77,85%) (270, 280, 290, 280, 325)
C. Snatch grip RDL: 3 x 4-6 @4110, rest 90 sec (165,175,185)

D. Reverse Hyper: 3 x 15; rest 1 min (incomplete-no reverse hyper)

Notes: Had a personal training client so go this in at about 5:15pm (later than usual on Fridays).  I did this workout at CFBB, felt like I needed a change up.   I have been tweaking my pull over the last week and I seem to be bumping the bar out just slightly.  My catch position feels great with my ankles and shoulders, but feel the bar is out in front.  Squats felt easy.  No real issues. I hope this sub-maximal work is getting me stronger, or else, what is the point? Snatch grip RDLs felt good.  Held solid angles the entire time.  

One thing that is weighing on my mind is my progress.  It is tough to tell how I am doing relative to the field because I am not doing the same testers.  Furthermore, since the only quantifiable thing relative to my competition that I can go off of is my strength numbers, I feel like I am WAY behind my competitors.  It is pretty disheartening.  I keep reminding myself that this is just a rough patch and better times are just around the corner, but are they?
