Notes: Felt good going into today's training session. Noticed I definitely wasn't eating enough carbs despite my moderate training load currently. Upped the plantains and yucca and slept much better last night. Got into the gym and warmed up pretty quickly. Worked on the blocks and had no misses. One thing that clicked for me was to stay back during the drive phase and have the bar come back to me. This prevented me from driving my chest through too much and lead to a more balanced solid lockout. Hit 295 pretty routine and then failed at 315lbs.. Came close a couple of times but just wasn't vertical enough on the dip drive and drop. DB presses were tough this week with 5 sets at 60lbs.. Same for the rows, but I got them all done. Hit the trap work afterward.
