Well, I finally decided to show up today and stop being a bitch about my touch and go power clean max. I made sure I warmed up enough at the lighter weights until I was feeling good. I worked up to 190 pretty quickly so I hit that for 2 reps and it was very easy. I was going to go to 195 but then I was just like fuck it, I'll go for 200. My 2RM is already 195 so what would be the point of doing that. I really channeled my inner Shankle. I went for 200 and got the first power clean very easily but BARELY missed the second one. I rested about two minutes then went for it again and got it pretty easily, it actually felt really good. Very happy with this, especially because my touch and go power cleans haven't been great the past few weeks. It's pretty sweet that a 200 pound power clean isn't hard anymore. 

Behind then neck push jerks were fine, although the hardest part is the tempo. I feel like I'm reaching a point where I won't be able to lower the bar for two seconds, and also dropping it on my neck is starting to get a bit painful. 

The 10:00 piece was alright. I broke up the wall balls 6/6 every round. Push ups got surprisingly difficult by the end. Axle deadlifts were harder than I thought they would be, my grip was shot by the end. I broke those up 4/2 every round. My lower back was also a bit blown up after this, not sure why because I wore a belt. 

Cool down walk was very pleasant, I'm so glad the weather is nice again and not thick with humidity.
