Took the grandson for Friday night. Feedings at 2AM and 5:30 AM. Too tired to go to Tribal Fitness on Saturday.

Return to Wendler cycles today: Back Squat: 5X 210,245,and 275. Used box for depth. These are all high bar as my shoulders are too rigid to let the bar drop to low bar.

Metcon: 3RFT: 50#DB thrusters for 15R and 30 GHD Sit ups.
Scale: 40# DB's and Sit ups to parallel. 6:40.

Much snappier snatches than usual tonite, was happy about that. Danica was behind me (I was in the middle of the Met Elite and Team NJ lifters for some odd reason), she was snatching 90kg FAST so I figured, I can do that with this baby weight. She was also snatch pressing and OHS with the same 90kg. I thought she said she C&j 145 Saturday. Geez talk about strong.

So I added some acceleration; they were pretty decent. I had a couple that were feather lifts, I know I pulled w/my legs b/c I wondered - did I let go of the bar?? Its like snatching air - can't figure out how to duplicate it. I had a couple where I pulled off the box instead of getting to the power position.

STILL struggling with the squat at times, damn it I wanna fix that thing! :ranting2: Danica said my hips aren't under me. They seem to think its a leg strength issue but I cant quite buy that. When I was lowbar squatting I was up to 3x5 with 145# w/nice depth for lowbar, and CF squatting 95# for a lot of reps! Did weightlifting make me weaker??? And how could it be, that one snatch is like nothing, bounce right up, and the next - can't get up at all, same weight. Gotta be something I'm doing or not doing with my butt/hips/knees. Maybe not working with enough weight? I dont know.

You guys are watching that game, right??? Luongo - Karma police??? GEEEZ!
damn, even silent kaberle scores??? tips suck.
