So I took 3 straight days off and I feel great. My hip had begun to bother me, so the rest was beneficial.
So I was reminded a valuable lesson during today’s session…..don’t drop the barbell on your toe. It happened while I was setting up to do my power cleans and the bar slipped from my hand as I was removing a plate on one side. The fat part of the bar landed right on the joint of my big toe.
Other than that, everything was solid lifts. The squats are heavy, but encouraging. My previous 3 RM of back squats was 175, I did 3 sets of 5 just 5 pounds below that. I am just 10 pounds under my previous press 2 RM as well. I feel like I will blow by it.
- Back Squats: 3x5 @ 170#
- Press: 3x5 @ 85#
- Power Clean: 5x3 @ 110#
