OHS- 175 was heavy and hard to hold at the top, left wrist felt ok but still not 100% but better with the stretches.
Barbell Complex #1 - a la Alwyn Cosgrove, this was an ass kicker!!!! My forearms were crazy pumped by the 3rd round and it was hard to even squeeze my hands shut. There are 2 ways I've seen him recommend doing this complex, with ascending ladder style or 4-5 sets of 6 reps. I'm so glad I choose the ladder style! I'm going to stay with this rep scheme until I can get my time down. AC wrote that 1 round of 6 reps should only take about 96 seconds....so my time is only a minute MORE!!
