Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 Workout
Today was very hard overall… Today was a battery tester with muscle ups and back squat, which I hate both movements…. Overall did not reach the goal I wanted to get, but it was still a good session, and still got a lot of work done over the time period. I was happy to push through the back squats, and aldo done at high bar range of motion. I perform all broken sets for muscle ups for the first 4 sets, then the last 2 clusters, I had to break them up, not so much for muscle failure, but for slipping because of the sweat from my arms and hands. Overall a good day of training, and my legs were smoked. I also believe from the aerobic work on the airdyne yesterday, my legs were already worn out in the central nervous system, so overall happy to get through everything.
I could have pushed a little harder on the squat cleans, and upped the weight a little bit, but stayed at the weight that I knew I could get, and hopefully over time, will see some bigger numbers, but overall happy wiht my techinque and form.
