I don't know what it was about today, but I had LASER FREAKIN' FOCUS during my workout. I haven't trained at that intensity or with such single-minded purpose literally in YEARS. I mentioned it to one of my coworkers and now he's started to call me the Barbell Buddha. Perfect concentration, single-minded focus, and otherwise completely empty and (relatively) serene mind in the midst of an epic struggle against heavy iron...I love it!
Squat - 45, 135, 225, 225, 225
Press - 45, 65, 105, 105, 105
Weighted Pull-up - 4, 4, 4 @ +35#
HLL - 3x10
Pull-up + HLL - 3x5
Kettlebell Snatch - 25 l,r
I'm starting to feel my old strength coming back. My squats continue to go up, my press is actually improving for once, and my pull strength is also coming back. I am starting to do kettlebell finishers that act as practice for the lifts that I will eventually be competing in - the snatch and the jerk. I need much more volume than I currently have, but at the moment I'm just doing a straight build-up phase.
