Thursday, July 19th and Friday, July 20th, 2012 Workouts

I had a rest day on Thursday, so just took the whole day off and did work like usually.

Friday was a pretty good day, and felt good on my lifts again. I hit 295 lbs on my jerk, and def could have gotten more, but on the last one, I felt a twinge in the left side of my back, and now it is bothering the shit out of me. However, I am happy with the weight, but disappointed I have something else to deal with now for a small injury. It def affected my muscle ups, as I got 7 in a row, but on the next one, I felt more of a pull, and then moving onto the next ones, I felt even more. I just worked through it and got through all the work. I think it might just be a small pull, and hopefully by Monday it will be healed up with some icing and recover, as I have a solid rest day on Sunday. I am happy about this week, and now it is time to keep moving up in weight, and want to see my squat move up as well on everything. I am getting into everything and just feel good following a program for once.
