Notes:
-FS - I switched to triples today, the 205 set felt good
-RDL - Did the first 2 sets very slowly, did the last 2 sets a bit faster, I can stand to go up in these for sure.
-Thruster practice - A wide grip while it felt better on the press, it was just too cumbersome to re-grip, my pinkies kept getting in the way. When I start jerking again I'll have to remember the wider grip. I was trying to find a narrower grip but the 2nd set of 95 starting hurting my left arm so I switched to KB's. The KB's felt fine, except that I felt like I wasn't getting a good drive from my legs to the press, near the end of the 25 I just felt like I was front squatting and strict pressing which is waaay too fatiguing on the shoulders.
-DB split snatch - didn't know what else to do so I threw these in here for the hell of it.

PM

Foam roller - 40 minutes
