12/27/12 Cycle 8 Week 2 Power Clean and Squat
20 minutes on the spin bike.
Overall Workout Grade: A
Everything went well today.
The powercleans felt fluid and explosive with a very purposeful rack at the top.
Squats went great. The lower back was a bit tender from tweeking it last week, but not any big deal. I really focused on push my legs outward on the decent and tightening the shit out of my abs. It seemed to work well for me. The weight fell with ease. It's about damn time I get this reset rolling forward.
A few things I learned from this session:
1.) Power cleans are a great warm up for the Squat.
2.) I recently re read the chapters in Starting Strength about the Squat, power clean. Re reading it has been extremely benifical. If you haven't read it in a while, set aside some time to reread a chapter about a lift you are currently struggling with, it may remind you something that could improve the lift.
3.) I will be ok if I drop Good mornings from the program.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
