This week has been unusual. In the last 9 days, I've worked about 75 hours. Its only lifeguarding, but its an additional stress that also cuts into my sleep. Hot days and too many backflips on my breaks must have drained me. Monday was terrible. I felt sick Tuesday-Thursday. My CNS was falling asleep on me between sets yesterday.

Then today I have a great day. Weird.

I'm going to shift to a little bit more intermediate programming with the squats. I thought I was going to get them today, but I just folded on the last set.

Monday Training

Snatch

180x1x5 (3/5)

C&J

220x1x1
225x1

Notes

Took some side shots. My first pull on the snatches is getting me way out in front. I'm bending my arms too early on the cleans. Going to try and stay relatively heavy, but work out these issues.

Tuesday Training

Squat

275x8x3

Press

145x5
145x3 fail fourth
135x6
115x8

Rows

70x15
70x10

Notes

Squats were pretty brutal today. I've been going even lower than what I was doing a linear progression. I think they took a little too much out of me before pressing.

Over the next month, training will be a little sporadic. I'm going to the beach for two nonconsecutive weeks. I'm also going to do a powerlifting meet on August 21. I'm going to try to maintain weight until then, and once I get back school I'm going to run a linear progression and put on another 15-20 lbs.
