Day 449: Power clean PB

Day 449

Today I did mostly the same set of exercises as two sessions ago, but with slightly different parameters for reps and weight.  I did power cleans first, setting a new personal best for last/last set.  I was able to do 3 reps, then failed the next rep, rested a few seconds, and then did the last two reps.  This was the first time I tried to clean 70kg; my previous heaviest go at the clean was 65kg for 1 to 3 reps.  I think the clean pulls I have been doing in the last 6 weeks of the Built for Show Spring program has added strength to my pull, in particular, the first pull.

I continued with single-leg (pistol) squats, dips, pullups, prone alternating leg/arm extensions, and dumbbell external rotations, finishing just in time to catch the 2nd to the last bus back to the hotel where I am staying at.

Eat right, train hard, and expect success!
