Wasn’t really going to work out today because it was deadlifts and burpees. (1) I have a steadfast rule to not do deadlifts the day before I am about to go on a trip / long car ride and (2) burpees are bad news bears for me – and I didn’t feel like modifying an entire workout. Boo. Instead, I did the first half of the workout which was essentially build to a heavy hang squat clean and then focused on mobility (ankle) and hip.
95, 115, 125, 135, 145, 150(f)
145# was a PR for me. First time for me when 135# felt effortless. I’ve not done a hang squat clean (hang power clean is 135#) but it’s a PR for any clean for me. It felt pretty easy. I tried once for 150 and failed. Not sure why I failed – I think when I initially picked it up it felt heavy and then I just got into my head about how heavy it felt and it was not going to happen. In other words, I was being an asshole to myself and sabotaged the lift.
