Today's Lifting Felt Great

I woke up early yet again. At least it wasn’t quite as early as the rest of the week where I got up before 4:00 AM. Today it was 4:20. I don’t know why I have been waking up so early. Normally I sleep later in the winter when it’s darker and get up earlier when it’s lighter in the summer.

I drank my coffee and wrapped up my shortcode that I posted about earlier while drinking it. We had to go to the stores today so I got at my lifting early, at least as early as I thought the potentially dropped power cleans wouldn’t overly disturb the neighbors.

My day of lifting started off with my back squats which felt nice and light today 215 pounds. They felt good enough that I bumped up my sets to five sets each set felt progressively better. If I were to have one complaint about these today the only thing I can come up with is the fact that I had a bit of a know in my quad. It was just a little bit of a tight spot that I only slightly noticed during my squats but not nearly enough to stop me or slow me down.

Strict press was up next. These felt good today but the were only at a light 102 pounds. I worked my way through my three sets pretty quickly and added in two more sets for good measure and more work. Last time I did these my wrist was bugging me a bit. The lump on the outside of my thumb was flaring up a little bit.

Finally I moved on to my power cleans. I did five triples of the cleans at 150 pounds. It was a light weight for me and I wouldn’t be lying if I said that it was probably too light of a weight for me. My timing was pretty on and I just felt like the bar was catching me off guard and making it higher than I expected it to. I don’t know why but I just felt as if I was really moving well with these today. Even with that little bit of a know in my quad the power cleans felt really good for me today.

I’ve not been posting as much about them the past few days but I am definitely still doing WODs and my lifting. I’ve been just a little busy with other things and not making the time to sit here and write.
