The training
Was in a rush today as I had about 40 mins to finish my entire workout. Things quickly fell apart. No chalk meant clean and jerk had tighter grip than necessary. This resulted in sloppier cleans and jerks. On the subject of cleans, the area near my left clavicle started acting up and the only way to avoid pain was to exaggerate the clean rack - essentially get it REALLY near my throat, sometimes bumping close to the Adam's apple. This highlights that my racking has not been positioned correctly even though elbows were up, and thus a new thing I must focus on correcting. Pain is a wonderful teacher.

No chalk meant no significant pull progress. No chalk + no confidence meant lighter OH squat than I'd hoped. I actually nearly passed out on my second work set of front squats, and had to let air out quite audibly to get past that phase. Thankfully I was able to push through and complete the squats. Pull-ups suck when I'm rushed, and I was rushed so they're bad here.
