Held back on the assistance work today. No need to train balls to the wall every session, especially on assistance exercises.


  1. You still doing the show in Santa Cruz this Saturday, or you saving your energy for the meet? Don't think you'll have any trouble making weight at this rate.

  2. I decided to focus on the powerlifting meet since that 245 clean is something I can't do for reps. I'd be down to just say screw it and go anyway but I didn't want to be unfair to my partner and show up weak.

    At least that was my reasoning at the time. To be honest with you I'm regretting it now.
