Was planning to beat the heat and lift before golfing so I woke up early. Wasn’t feeling it though so I got in a 21 minute ROMWOD instead. Walked 18 holes and it was a sticky one today. Was already getting one of my headaches on the 14th hole. Ate, relaxed, and took a long cold shower before getting to the gym at 5:30, still with the head pounding. Started with Crossover Symmetry Activation.
Snatch Push Press + 3 OHS
Three second pause in bottom of each squat.
Went 10 pounds heavier than last week and was much more stable overhead.
Tall Power Snatch + OHS
Started using straps with 95#. By the end of the first week my hands felt raw. Not going to let that happen this week. I remember a triple with 145 being a struggle in the squat and this was pretty easy for powers.
Three second pause above knee on descent.
Used straps for all sets, but still uncomfortable on my thumbs.
Been wanting to get in a bench session for a weeks since my last heavy session fell off on BTWB and I haven’t benched 200+ since January. Since today was pretty light and low volume it seemed like a good day for it. Felt much heavier than it should have, being 15# below my best set of 5.
Finished with Crossover Symmetry Iron Scap.
