Yep, and also the Power and Bulk posted stuff from Gary.

That's where I got the idea to drill at 50, but perhaps I need to take it down a bit farther, like 45.

I've got a forced break coming up as well (a little R&R in the mountains), so the resting side is covered :-). I'm getting some nagging twinges here and there, so I think I'm due...

I find that I miss the time away if I don't snatch or c&j each session. Perhaps a light snatch + a 20 rep c&j and the reverse + pressing/squatting, alternating with a full-on 20/20 session.

Great advice...

By the end of the c&j training, there's this little voice saying "quit! quit!".... It was very satisfying to tell that voice to shut the hell up and go on to make all 21 reps!
