Very thankful for a lighter week, I needed it. I think my body was telling me I needed to chill a little bit. I talked to Heather about my diet and she organized my food into a new and improved food plan. We reduced my overall caloric intake a little bit since I want to lean out and stop feeling so bloated and heavy. I'm eating the same foods I was before, just timing them better and eating more chicken for dinner. I'll probably have to increase my carb intake once I get back to normal training volume but for now the new food plan seems great. Megan also got in touch with me about trying to sync up our training schedules so I don't have to train alone. I'm really lucky to have such a great coach and awesome friends. 

Snatch balances felt excellent today, I was able to work up to an easy 125. Every rep was really crisp and fast. 

Jerk balances were also really good, 135 felt solid overhead. For some reason when I set up for the jerk I'm putting my hands a bit wider than normal but when I actually jerk overhead they feel really close together. I know this makes no sense, but it's true! As soon as I jerk overhead my hand placement suddenly feels narrow. 

I really enjoyed the Z1 row and handstand walk combo, I wouldn't mind doing this more often. Handstand walk was pain-free and easy. 

The banded march is no joke, it gets tiring pretty quickly.
