And keep doing it

Momentum! A note about protein: I’m using this veggie stuff because I think I consume way too much meat as it is:

Notes #

Got less sleep that I would’ve liked considering today was supposed to be a heavy day. Pre workout mobility was good and started working up from 95lbs in 10lb increments to working weight. First set at 200 was ok and my turnover was initially pretty slow but I eventually woke up and was able to get my elbows through pretty effectively. I don’t know what I did last night but a combination of that single beer and lack of sleep somehow lit a fire under my ass since I was able to get through 225 without much issue. I almost lost a few cleans in the front rack due to pain in my shoulders – this is a big problem for me that I need to work mobility on. Punching through starts to slow down because I feel a pinching in my shoulders which comes from a lack of flexibility on my external rotation. All in all, legs got me through this and I was able to work up to 96% of my 1RM clean.
