Workout Testing Day

Snatch worked up to 100 LB's (NEW PR) I am in the triple digits
Clean worked up to 145 LB's I just wasn't feeling the clean today and didn't want to push it.
Front Squat Worked up to 190 LB's and it was clean and deep. Very happy with the FS in fact felt like I could keep going but I was out of time. I am really looking forward to unloading this week and going for the gusto next week.

I have decided that I am going to start the Dan John BIG 21 (TM) program next. I have been making great progress in all the O-Lifts and I am going on vacation middle of the second week of June so the 9 day program fits in nicely before vacation.

I was fighting to get out of an armbar and he twisted my wrist to tighten the armbar and elbow made all kinds of noise and I went ow!
