Holy forearm burn, can't type to save my life
I added a jerk in the clean complex, and did a bunch of light rack jerks for practice.
My jerk needs work, but I am stating to address specific things that seem to be helping. Tomorrow will be a good test.
I am starting to feel stronger. I adjusted my stance in the pulling position to be narrower. Either that has made a huge difference, or, that, along with strength gains over the last few weeks are starting to pay off.
And, I am eating way too much protein. It's been my way of overeating during the holidays. And, for the most part it's worked. I don't feel bloated, I don't feel like i have gained much body fat (although I gained a little) considering how many extra calories I'm consuming per day. While I am on the program, I will be looking at eating mostly protein and fats. Adding the odd High GI carb PWO, other then that aiming under 50g carbs per day. I will however up my carbs every few days when I feel depleted. Like today for example, it's carb time, I feel drained.
