*16 hour fast*
BW = 190

1. WU
(on the drive over to the gym I started feeling really sick to my stomach, not good)
500m row - 2:11
(feeling super nauseous, almost threw up right there after writing the row into my log, so rather than just sit on a bench I went for a walk)
walk outside - 14:30
1-inch bird dog - 0:10 x 5L/R
DROM WU - 10 all movements

2. Strength
Burgener WU - 45 x 1
3 pos. snatch - high hang, below knee, ground - 45 x 2, 75 x 1, 95 x 1
back squat - high bar - 45 x 3, 95 x 3, 135 x 3, 185 x 3, 225 x 3, 245 x 3, 275 x 3, 290 x 2 (last rep I shifted forward and lost it), 245 x 3, 245 x 3, 245 x 3, 245 x 3, 245 x 3
(1 min rest for work sets 1-3, 2 minutes for sets 4+5, back to 1 minute rests on the remaining 5)

rack push jerk + press outs - 95 x 3, 95 x 3 + 8, 95 x 3 + 8, 95 x 3 + 8, 95 x 3 + 8
(rest - 1 minute)

fat grip pullups - 6, 4, 5 (TIRED)
GHD situp - 12, 12, 12
KB chop - 35# kb - 10L/R, 10L/R, 5L/R
(superset with full rest - 1 min)

Notes:
-Weird nausea as I was driving to the gym, I was only seconds away from throwing up after the row, I decided to take a walk and afterwards felt MUCH better.
-3 pos. snatch - felt good today, focused pulling under quickly
-10 x 3 back squats - Holy, I warmed up and then worked up to a heavy triple for the first 5 sets and then did 245 for the last 5 with less than a minutes rest between. My legs are HURTING today, I actually woke up a few times last night due to the amount of discomfort in my legs. Next week I might not go up to 290 since I felt like I was struggling to keep an upright torso at that weight.
-rack push jerk - kept the weight light and rest short just to work the movement, concentrating on keeping my scapula retracted in the rack position. Didn't experience any pain the elbows/shoulder today.
-pullups - I was just TIRED by the time I got to this circuit, I felt like everything was just slow

PM

foam rolling and triggerpoint stuff with stick ~60 minutes
