I’m not sure if it was the birthday weekend or just a glitch in the matrix, but I wasn’t feeling too strong today. Split jerks I missed 3 consecutive attempts at 308#, a weight I should definitely be able to stick no problem, and the HSPU felt like I weighed an extra 20#. I walked out of the gym in the afternoon luke warm on the whole day. Thankfully the evening session offered some redemption. A power nap and some good food will do a lot it turns out. I managed 31 snatches in the 5 minutes allotted and felt solid all the way through. The rope climbs were a different kind of challenge because the rope was 2” thick. If you haven’t climbed a thick rope before, it’s murder on the grip and arms. I still finished 11 climbs, but was pumped out for a good 20 minutes afterwards.

Tomorrow is a rest day and I plan to write a post about the current training split I’m on and it’s pros and cons. Those of you who’ve been asking for details, I apologize it’s taken me so long to get around to it.
