Stress Moderate-5/Sym/CNS Average-3/Adaptive Reserve Good-7

I felt a bit tired today and life has been stressful. Gotta keep on truckin'!

Cleans were tough and I had to really explode today. I had to jump violently but when I did I nailed the weight well.

I thought I was going to get 4 sets in with the way the first set felt, but fatigue badly on the last set.

I'm still not convinced on the value of deficit deadlift as the movement pattern is not exactly the same as the deadlift, but it has to be good for flexiblity. I think halting deadlifts would be of beter value.

I got twenty pullups today and this took more sets than I would have liked.

Grip Work
Captains of Crush Grippers
Trainer - 10 X 1, 10 X 1, 10 X 1
#1 - 5 X 1, 5 X 1, 5 X 1
1.5 - 3 X 1, 3 X 1
2 - 1 X 1, 1 X 1, 1 X 1

On my grip work I need to really used the thumb pad to set the gripper properly. Any other gripper users?
