A1. 5x3 snatch off blocks (below knee) @ heavy trip
75 x 2 x 3
80 x 2 x 3
85 x 3
90 x 3
90 x 3
95 x 3
105 x 5 x 3 PR - 10#

Snatches felt awful today. They were all over the place. Some reps I wasn't getting my elbows high, some I wasn't extending completely, some I was getting under fast enough. My feet were all over the place too, sometimes to wide, sometimes too close. Despite hitting a 10# PR for my work sets, not a single rep felt good today.

B1. 5x2 clean off blocks (below knees) @ heavy dub

105 x 2
115 x 2
125 x 2
135 x 2
145 x 2
150 x 5 x 2 PR - 5#

Same basic shittiness with cleans today, although they were a lot better than the snatches. My landings were slightly more consistent, but my legs felt really tired.

C1. ankle mob
C2. shrimp - back knee only x 5 x 5 each leg

I like shrimps as part of my ankle mobility, because to get into the right positions the knee has to go a decent way over the toes, and I feel like it will lead to more ankle mobility while also developing strength in the new range of motion as opposed to unloaded static and dynamic stretches. it also makes my knees feel good.

A1. back body line drill - 1 x 15 sec
A2. bridge pushups - x 10 w/ 10 sec pause on last rep

Back body line drill is getting better, I might bump it up to 20 sec next time. I don't think the bridge pushups are opening up my shoulders like I want them too, so next EQ workout I'm gunna try a weighted box shoulder stretch.

B1. HS body line wall drill - 1 x 30 sec
B2. straddle pike pull - 1 x 10 w/ 10 sec pause on last rep

HS body line is getting better up against the wall, and its getting easier to hold the hollow position upside down. I'm getting deeper in my pancake/straddle pike stretch, but I might have pushed it a little far because my left inside hamstring is a little sore. Hopefully it wont affect my lifts tomorrow.

C1. Gatherings, piked - 1 x 10 w/ 10 sec pause on last rep

Took a headstand too far forward and fell, but rolled out of it without injury. I might start doing these on a raised platform so I can stretch towards a pike more without my feet hitting the floor.
