Failed on 2 attempts on a fifth rep so I called it a day. I'm just going to focus on the power clean for now.
Got my VS athletics shoes today and I like them alot. They have a tall heel but it seems to work because I was able to much more comfortably use the clean style rack. 2.5# increases from here.

- Any comments are appreciated!
Wore my new shoes thinking I would add some ROM to the lift. But for some reason, I had a much easier time lifting the weight then last wed. Cool. I dont think it was more quad being involved either, since the vid I took shows no more knee bend then last time (at least, maybe even less knee bend. The 2 videos are at different angles so its hard to tell).
Was craving some pressing, figured it wouldn't hurt. Last set was done with 1:30 seconds rest, as is now customary.
Something happened on the second set around 30 reps, and the reps just suddenlt felt incredibly easy and I was banging them out really quick. Maybe the harness wiggled into a sweet spot. Anyway this carried over to the last set where I set a huge rep record (previous PR was 30 reps a couple days ago.) I am going to feel this in the morning. Also, I did some light stretching beforehand and it I think it helped not feel any neck pain.
