day 2057 – front squats

been concentrating on going heavy with front squats for the past several weeks and progress is there. i really wanted to build the strength back up; started barely cracking the century mark to now being able to hit one twenty five for working sets. i’m not far off from one plate front squats and think hitting it before my birthday is totally doable. i feel the power exercises has translated well with my explosiveness. i just feel like i tend to hold back sometimes because i want to ensure i can control them properly

day 2022 – vertical jump

breaking in my nike romaleos during a snatch session. today’s snatches didn’t feel very good partially affected by the healing blisters. i didn’t snatch heavier than last week but i went through some high pull drills. in addition to my normal program, i also did a vertical jump test at the beginning which brought back some interesting data. though i have a twenty one inch vertical which is classified as very good, i actually want twenty four plus so i can be in the excellent range
