I felt pretty good in the morning, got a lot of rest the day before and that Sunday night. My body feels good, nothing really to report.

A. HB Back Squat w/ bands – 7 x 3; rest 3min (bar @75% + moderate band tension)
These went well. I hit them at 260 lbs and never really struggled, which is encouraging. I used the green and blue bands once again. Videos below:

B. Depth Jump to box – 6 x 3; rest 2min (drop from 12-16″” jump to at least 30″” box)
These were another thing that were new to me, but they went well. I did the first round at 34″ (30″ box with (1) 45 plate on top) and then added a 15 lb plate for the next 5 rounds. I was jumping off of (4) 45 lb plates, which is about 16″. Videos below:

C. BB Back Rack RLE Split Squat – build to 5RM ea leg; rest as needed b/t legs
These always seem to work be pretty well. I got to 195 lbs on my left leg and 205 lbs on my right leg. The camera died during the 205, but I promise I made all 5 reps. Video below:

7 TnG Hng Squat Cleans @ 155#
30sec Sled push @ 100% effort (mod-load, fast turn-over)
Rest 4min
x5
These were terrible as usual. The hang squat cleans were pretty easy and I never really had any trouble. I had to do these at CrĂ³ga because NorCal was closed, so I used the pocket sleds instead of a prowler, but it seemed to be just as hard. I loaded it with 2 plates and just tried to run fast.
