Cycle 1 – 1s Week: Power Clean & Deadlift: 8/25/14

Slept later than planned but was worth it.
Think that “Midnight Snack” helped boost me up the next morning despite the less than ideal planned sleep.

Arrived at the gym feeling good (6/10).
Main lift was great but energy level gradually diminished as I was finishing up.

Think energy level would have been better at the end of my session if I ate more and had slightly more sleep the night before.
Other than that, it was another great session!

Energy boost as I started my work sets(7/10).

Practiced hook grip on the warm-up sets and was easy enough.
Couldn’t deal with it on my work sets.
But I did do all my sets with just a double overhand grip instead of using a mixed grip on the top set.
Also felt that I could easily do another 2 reps on the top set if needed.
