Notes #

Didn’t get any video because I was in a bit of a rush. I started working up from 95lbs in 10lb increments, trying to focus on footwork and pushing the bar only as far as I need to and locking out. Additionally, my split itself has been looking pretty narrow so trying to also create a wide base when splitting. Shoulders felt good and strong, legs were a bit shot. Overall, I felt pretty comfortable at the weights considering I was able to work up to 93%. Think the shoulder mobility has come a LONG way and it’s finally paying dividends.
