day 2384 – clean waves

building on last week’s workout by adding two kilos to all my cleans in the wave. pleased that i made all my lifts and majority of them felt good. heaviest clean of the day was fifty seven kilos, which matches the heaviest i’ve attempted at apex but failed to make a year ago. i dread the panda pull for it’s an extraordinary drill i still don’t understand. last part of the workout was heavy jerk dips at seventy kilos. i don’t think i’ve ever felt much weight on my front rack, but i didn’t die
