day 2181 – pause squats

working those pause squats up to triples of 125 this week. pleasantly surprised myself, and my coach, that he suddenly decided to add a fourth set. the tech work and muscle snatches are really forcing me to get under quicker with my lock out and the pause at the bottom is helping me secure the catch better. i felt so strong and focused on all my lifts with no dropped snatches. the bonus is surpassing the pre-planned weight by a kilogram. i was so hyped after the session, i felt like i could continue to lift some more

day 950 – monday hustle

monday stats are usually outrageous, today was no different despite barely regaining my normal capacity. if asked, at the beginning of today, if i could have achieved these numbers by the end of the day, i would have thought that was a preposterously impossible. in fact i was just aiming to make it through training and dodgeball without collapsing. it feels amazing my output was far beyond what my mind thought i could muster. i’m glad i was pushed to work my butt off and make that stats line. i’ll feel the effects tomorrow but it’s definitely worth every ounce of sweat and effort put forth today
