Tuesday, July 17th, 2012 and Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Today was light day, but hit some longer monostructural work on the rowing machine. Once again I hate rowing, and hate sitting on that rowing machine. The temperature got up to 98 degrees today, so it was good to hit some work with some hot weather and really pushed myself on the rowing machine. After the two 15 minute intervals, I hit some light high hang cleans and jerks for technique based work, and everything felt pretty good.

Wednesday was a good day of training and hit a decent weight on the power clean. I have been stuck on this movement for awhile, and I am glad to see some improvement in this area. I def could have hit a heavier weight, as the weight below was pretty light, and my head was just into today. I blocked everything out, and just focused on the lifts!
