Sun 9/21/14:
The 20th was Kelly’s birthday, so I rested on Friday & Saturday because we were busy with family and friends. Body felt good on Sunday morning when it was time to train.

I 8
C 8
E 8

This was an ok training session, not terrible, but not great. We had a class going during some of it, so I wasn’t as focused as I would normally be.

A. Power Clean x1 + Hang Squat Clean x2 – 5 moderate sets of the complex; rest as needed
These went well, no real problem. Wasn’t sure what moderate was supposed to feel like so I just went 205-215-225-225-225. Videos are below:





B. 3″” Deficit Deadlift – build to tough single; rest as needed
This went extremely well. I really had no clue what I would be able to get, but I just kept adding weight until I got to a tough one. I went 345-365-385-405-425. I thought 425 was a pretty good “tough single” especially considering my 1RM regular DL is only 445. Next time we test that it might actually change, haha, I guess we’ll find out. Videos are below:





5 Rounds for time:
12 DL @ 155#
9 Hng Power Clean @ 155#
6 STOH @ 155#
This one did not go well at all. My forearms completely locked up on me after round 2 and I was helpless, I just had to wait until they worked again before I could pick up the bar each round. I did the first 2 rounds in about 2:05 and my final time was 9:51, which is not good at all. I think grip and forearm muscle endurance is something we need to work on because this was a poor showing.
