Jerks

Was SO tight in the traps and neck today for no good reason so decided to use the 24 kg and ramp up the reps slowly with ladders.

LC Clean and Jerks
36x5/5x2
44x5/5
53x5/5
x6/6
x7/7
x8/8
x9/9
x10/10

90 total reps with 53

these were pretty easy although my left wrist was out from the BU clean with the Bulldog. No real problem , just tight forearm flexors pulled the wrist out a bit. Tape is goooooood.right up there with chalk. Clean and jerk form,however, was possibly my best ever. Shoulder flexibility, even the right side is really getting there.the linkage and coordination was decent.

Weighted tactical pullups
bwx5
bwx5
26x3x5 sets

these were not as easy as they were supposed to be. had hoped to do 36 for trips but discretion..... havent done as much weighted stuff in the last two weeks and I can tell.not bad though.pause at bottom and chin over bar.

KB Lunges
36x8/8
53x8/8
72x8/8

One KB suitcase dl( right arm)
62x5x3 sets

Farmers Walk
(2) 53's x2 laps, 4 times( in the rain! )

Decided to do a little direct quad work as the left VMO is not firing as well as it was. Need a sled or perhaps a tire to drag. the farmers walks in the rain reminded me of all the running I used to do in the rain. It was one of my favorite times to run long distance. Ah, the good old days.

Training in the Rain Mark, you are a crazy man. Seriously it is good to train in non ideal conditions at times, as life is not always ideal. Mel Siff calls it imperfection training.

Nice work!
