  1. You can get a shit ton of good results from just doing body weight stuff. I used to do a circuit of pistols (limited ROM), pushups, and chinups. I just set my timer for 15 minutes and tried to get as many total reps as possible.

    Morning A. Power Position Hang Snatch Worked up to 55/3 Notes: Missed 55 forward twice. I was putting too much pressure on the ball of my foot. Centering it fixed that. B. Power Position Hang Clean + Pause Split Jerk Worked up to 65/1+2 Notes: My split jerk is still hot garbage. I think I need to just do a ton of reps with the bar. Evening A. Oly Squat, 3-0-X-0ish tempo Warmup 80x5 85x5@8? Notes: I kept it slow enough to be able to maintain even pressure over both feet. B. Overhead Press Warmup 60x1 62.5x5@8 C. Band Row + External Rotation + Press Yellow/a bunch Notes: Worked my way away from and back to the door. D. Standing Band Curl Yellow/a bunch Notes: Same deal as above. Band was at chest height. I need a heavier band for these, and should use a slower tempo. E. Band Overhead Stretch Worked on letting the band pull my arms back behind me over head while maintaining a locked down rib cage.
  3. The weather is one of the many magical things about Cali. I don't think the weather is bad here, but I'm probably just used to it. I've lived in the South all my life. The worst is summer. My only other gripe is that I wish we got more fall and spring.
  4. If you think the weather in Sacramento is awful, the South is probably not for you.
  5. No use fucking him any more. It's like ringing a fleshy, squishy dinner bell.

    I did some banded row + external rotation + overhead press later on. These feel really good, but I do feel a bit of impingement in my left shoulder during the overhead pressing portion. I take a bit of a step back on every rep to slowly increase the difficulty; then when I feel like I've hit a threshold on how hard they are, I start walking slowly back between reps. These I feel like I can do every day.

  9. By repeating the skill but slightly altering the conditions every time: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a-johns-hopkins-study-reveals-the-scientific-secret-to-double-how-fast-you-learn?utm_source=pocket-newtab It reminds me of a podcast I listened to a few days ago. Max Aita was talking about doing variations of the Oly lifts during training for enhanced recovery and to keep lifters motivated. I now think it could be applicable to honing skill as well.

    A. 1+1/4 Oly Squat, 5sec negative Worked up to 80x5@9 Notes: 5 sec down, squat up 1/4 of the way, fast down and bounce out of the hole, squat all the way up. That's 1 rep. I focused on loading my legs up evenly and slowly/evenly lowering myself all the way, and on control when bouncing out of the hole. B. Snatch Practice Just did some shit with the bar to move around some. C. Seated SGBTNP, leaning forward Notes: I just used the bar on these, focusing on leaning forward more every few reps. These simulate SGBTN Sotts presses, but allow you to modify your trunk angle to build up strength and mobility in the shoulders. I have a stitch in my left abdominal area. Could be from working out with food on my stomach. Decided to stop for today. I have a long weekend, so I can take my time.

    Feeling a little tired this morning. Got it done, though. A. Oly Squat Warmup 105x5@8.5 controlled + no bounce Notes: I can feel myself loading up the right leg more. I should start using a slower eccentric. B. Overhead Press Warmup 60x6@8 C. No Foot Floating Snatch Worked up to 60x3, 60x3@9 Notes: I'm starting to get a feel for perceived effort and Oly lifts. D. BTN Split Jerk from Rack Worked up to 70x3, 80x2.5 Notes: I changed my split so that my right foot is forward once again. My jerks look like hot dog shit right now, but hopefully I'll be able to iron things out in a few weeks. I'll put more emphasis on jerks right now, maybe do 1-2 cleans + 2-3 jerks.
  12. Coming back to Atlanta any time soon?
