My car broke down last week and we had shiteous weather, so it seemed like a good time to take a few days off and rest up. Back at it yesterday, and with a double session today, after yet another f*cking blizzard yesterday. Benching I tried putting my pinkies on the knurling instead of my pointers, bringing my grip in a couple inches on each side. Didn't effect me as much as I thought, and I definitely felt it a bit more in my triceps. Probably would've had 305 if I hadn't squatted first.
Good session, I guess doing farmers first really fatigued me. Had to dig deep for those last several jumps. In the future I should probably do the broad jumps first, and then carries after if I'm doing them that day.
Good session! No PRs on broad jumps but I didn't have a lot of pop today so that's not surprising. Did some weighted box jumping as well, I'm going to be incorporating more of this stuff as I get into the cut more.
Double session here since tomorrow is going to suck weather-wise. I enjoyed the press walking, I just pressed a short pre-loaded bar over my head and walked around. I need to add more of stuff like that in.
Great jumping session. What really made the difference is not worrying about swinging my arms so much. You're supposed to swing them forward right as you're launching, but I was over-thinking it, and it came off more mechanical than fluid. I tried just sitting back deep and exploding up out of that; really focusing on that part. The arm swing felt more complementary, as it should, and was less of the focus than it was prior.
Hanging Power Snatches: 95*3 115*2 125*2 135*1 145*2
Standing Calves: 200*10 200*10
Dead Bugs: 10, 10
Kept it light for once on deadlifts. Did more of a lead up with snatches and more reps at lower weight. I don't think it really improved my weights on the last couple sets as you can see, but I was much more explosive on those lighter weights, it's fun. Did more standing calves here, I didn't work them as much as I had wanted during the bulk so far. Need to finish with more work there over the next month.
Retested max here, good times, still hitting 275, much easier this time. Rest of session went well, threw in some more landmine laterals, and kept up with the hex farmers. I really love the farmers, I feel my grip strength improving, my forearms are growing, my traps are thicker, and I love the way these things tax my CNS. I sleep like a baby after these things.
