Training Log: Entry 2221


10 Minutes EMOM
Axle continental 3x156

Notes: 3 reps every minute for 10 minutes.  This was right about the sweet spot.  Was decently gassed but still got in some technique work.  This was great for really figuring out what I'm doing on the continental.  Sorted out where I was going wrong.  I was trying to clean the first pull and deadlift the second, and I needed to deadlift the first pull and clean the second.  Now I pull the axle straight off the ground and try to land it on my belly with my wrists turned over the axle as far as they can go.  This gives me enough rotation while moving upwards to get it up my chest.  Things moved much smoother.  On the reps where I could hit the belt, it really flew.  Pinched myself real good on a few reps, and torqued something in my upper right shoulder blade, but for the most part it was a solid session.  Think I might keep this in and gradually up the weight, as it'll do nothing but good things for me.

General notes: Woke up at 190.0.


  1. Yes. The continental is just a speed deadlift that forgot to stop. Like a really meatheady high pull.


    1. It's honestly amazing how hard it is for me to understand these simple things, haha. I had to get strong because I'm too damn stupid.
