V-Ups - 12, 12, 12

Barbell Complex:
High bar squat
Low bar squat

45 x 6 reps, 95 x 6 reps

-Reach, Rock and Lift - Looked easy on paper but these kicked my ass, it was a struggle to do the Lift portion with my palm facing up. My left shoulder was definitely making some weird noises on the "lift" part. No pain, almost like a popping sound?
-YTWL- Struggle to finish the last few reps on W and L, shoulders were burning hard at this point.
-Snatch Grip Deadlift - Started out on a box but after the first working set I went down in weight and did them off the ground since the 25# plates are smaller than the 45#'s.
-Cable Pull Throughs - I've never done these before and wanted to replace Romanian Deadlifts sine I've been doing those the last few months. I think maybe I was doing them wrong because my the end my lower back was burning, or perhaps pairing them with SGDL's weren't the best idea.
-Lunge w/ stepup - Was originally planning on Barbell Bulgarian Split squats but someone grabbed the rack so I subbed these in.
-V-ups - Ouch
-Barbell Complex - I thought I made good time through my workout so I threw in a complex, I didn't realize that I didn't set my watch forward! I was actually over time!
