Training Log: Entry 2216
(6) Axle Mat Pulls
1x336 (mixed grip)
1x426 (mixed grip)
1x516 (straps from here out)
10x516 (rest pause touch and go)
25 second DOH hold with 226
Notes: Lot going on here. First off, I'm going to have AM and PM weights just to make my life easier. If I train in the afternoon, I'll work with 566, and if I train in the morning it's 516. I know improvement on one means improvement on another. Secondly, I'm using my warm-ups to get a better feel with mixed grip axle. It took 2 attempts for 426, but on the first one I didn't chalk up. It wasn't super comfortable, but I have about 3 months to improve, which is a HUGE amount of time compared to most shows. Brought back the timed DOH holds because they've always been helpful, and with an axle it's absolute murder.
GHR sit-ups w/10lb plate behind head
Notes: Cut the last set short because I could feel myself using my knee to complete the reps.
Buffalo bar squats
RESTPAUSE (15 deep breaths between sets)
Notes: Was beat after yesterday's yoking, so swallowed my pride and worked with less than 400. It's for the best; I need to earn that weight again. This was still plenty brutal. I banged my right knee on the stair rail about a week ago and it's still pretty tender, so it keeps showing up in these workouts.
