I felt better again today. Yesterday I used the foam roller to get rid of some of the tension around my hips. I focused on the IT bands, the hamstrings, the quads, the calves and the spine. I followed that with using the massage stick to work over my adductors and I followed this with a 5 minute relaxing groin stretch. I felt better for it today and a lot freer around the hip area.
I did my Back Squats in a seperate 40 minute workout early in the afternoon. In between my warm up sets I did my glute pre hab and one set of wall slides for my scaps and another bit of hip flexibility at the end. I then did the following:
1x5@80 1x3@100 1x2@130, 140, 150, 160, 165, 165--Here I missed the second rep with 165 on both sets. Missing reps aside, I felt pretty good during the brief session.
Later that day in the Hercs, I did the folowing after a nice warm up with overhead squats, glute and scap prehab and some flexibility:
Snatch doubles--1x2@40, 40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 95, 95--I missed the second rep in the next two sets which was annoying. I was not finishing my pull and as Tommy told me, get your hips more involved. I then did another double with 95 and it was much better. I was not focusing enough on the second rep and because it was a matter of focus, I had to get the double. If it was physical fatigue, I would have left it. I then followed this with an easy single with 100, just because I wanted to lift it.
Jerk behind neck--1x2@80, 100, 120, 130, 130--The second rep on the first set with 130 was in front because I dipped in front because of a lack of focus, butI still ground it out. My second and last set was far more accurate and faster also.
Power Clean doubles--1x2@60, 80, 90, 100, 110--I left it at this because I could feel the fatigue creeping in and it was a struggle to Power Clean 110 twice.
All in all I was hapy with the day's training. I did not really push it other than with the squat failures, but I thought I had them. Never mind. I have a light session tomorrow and then another session on Saturday. Have a look at the video and let me know what you think:
