Farted really loud during my second set of hypers, good thing the gym isn’t too busy in the morning lol.

Switched it up to 10x3 instead of 5x6 for the cleans. Same volume overall but I felt the need to go heavier this week (I was VERY conservative with my 1RM for the power clean when I calculated all the percentages because I hadn’t done them in quite awhile) instead of upping the intensity and keeping the rep scheme the same I just cut the sets in half so I could focus on technique. It was getting to the point where 120 was getting a bit hard to clean properly because it felt so light.

Little circuit of prowler, waiter walks and suitcase walks for 4 rounds. Just a short session today as I’ve got an early morning exam to write.


Your training is looking good, are you still doing much BJJ?


@vision1 thanks man! Not as much as I’d like unfortunately, I’ve had a lot of late nights this semester with classes and assignments and also work. My schedule for the new year looks a lot lighter though because I’ve got some online classes so my nights will be free more often. (My gym only has Jits classes at night unfortunately, but now that I’ve got a bit more experience I can probably hit some open mat and just roll)
