Notes: I was in Miami all morning get a PRI assessment. I learned a lot of great things and was prescribed exercises to do to mend some postural problems that I have. I hurried back home after eating lunch in Coral Cables, laid down for 10 minutes and then went to the gym. I had about an hour and 20 minutes to hit this workout but I knew it wouldn't take too long. I did a few exercises to get my hips ready, then got to work. I will say that my pull didn't feel great. I was lifting too much with my back and couldn't work with my legs and hips today. Perhaps it was because I was getting overextended at the top position? Felt a little heavy but after two sets at 255lbs., I decided to make a go for 275lbs.. I hit it relatively easy and that made me feel very good. I quickly built up in the deadlift and realized I hadn't done deadlifts in a very long time (only on the trap bar). They felt great off the ground but the touch and go reps were challenging because of dead weights. HSPU felt okay even though I didn't have much of a warm-up. Need to get more rhythm with my kip. Rope climbs went well but I need to work on my descent. Quick workout and felt good.
