5/3/1: Cycle 10 – 3s Week: Power Clean (135 x 4 / TM 145 x 1) & Deadlift (315 x 4 / TM 345 x 1): 12/24/12

24 Dec

Cycle 10 – 3s Week: Power Clean & Deadlift: 12/24/12

Slept for around 5-6 hours before work.
Started the night feeling slightly sluggish but eventually started feeling better as my shift was about to end and I get ready to go to the gym.
Felt good as I arrived at the gym after finishing my White Flood on the drive here. (6/10)
My energy level was progressively getting better with the start of my power clean work set (7/10) and improved even more at the start of my box squats (8/10).
It did die down a bit once I started doing my sit-ups (6/10)

Overall a great session!
