Snatch pulls felt great today, 195 got pretty high.

The assault bike workout was terrible. My goal was to finish under 2:00 and I barely made it. Handstand push ups were unbroken and pretty fast. I think I went as fast as I could on the assault bike? I thought I was pushing pretty hard on this, I was really tired when I got to the cleans. I definitely lost time on the cleans, I rested too long before the first rep. I also tried to string some together right out of the gate and that was a mistake, I did two in a row but they were slow. I realized I needed to switch to singles but I had already wasted too much time. Ugh. This was nasty. It took me awhile to recover from this.

I definitely wasn't fully recovered by the time I had to start the KB/burpees. This part was so slow. My muscles were extremely fatigued and I couldn't breathe (partially from still recovering from a cold). Longest three minutes of my life.

Last normal training day before the Open. Goodbye, heavy weight. See you in five weeks.

Good day. It's amazing how easy back squats are now, I used to be terrified of these. 245 was relatively easy for a double. 

The EMOM went well, I liked the gymnastics complex a lot. Wall balls were SUPER easy, I love throwing to a 9 foot target. About halfway through the EMOM I started having a weird feeling in my right knee after each set of wall balls. The first few steps afterwards were feeling sort of unstable and shaky. It was really weird. I don't know if I didn't mobilize correctly or what was going on. I need to make an appointment with Balza next week.
