Starting to get use to the heavier weight and flaring my elbows to lock out at the top which is helping me have more confidence with my technique. Trying to get use to the longer stroke since I lost the "2 board" of my gut, but all the technique work on speed days are starting to pay off and get me comfortable transitioning from mid point to lock out. Technique is key when lifting maximum weights and something that needs to be dialed in when getting ready for a comp.

Made progress tonight and that is enough, need to keep building on the small victories to get to the big picture!
