OK, bit of a tough one today. Not sure why. I felt good going in, but things just felt a little heavier and slower than they should have. So did the main work and got out without injury. By the end my calf was tightening up and my lower back throbbing. One of those days I guess.

warmups: hip and leg mobility, foam roll, Jump Rope 3x fail, which for me is not that many!
Dynamic: Cleans to 165, 3x 2x 135

Squat:
1x 315 (slower than normal, even with belt)
3x 10x 235 (Belt on last set. Not sure I'd have got 10 reps without it. )

Sumo:
185x 15, 12 (way harder than last week)

Pulled the plug there. Worked on some stretching and foam rolling.

155 Clean, bar too far out in front of me:
165 Clean, still kind of ugly:
1x 315, kind of slow for me, but never in doubt:
Second set of 10x 235:
Second set, 12x 185:

There you go. Volume might be catching up with me a bit. We'll see. I think tomorrow I'll just max out on OHP to get a number to use, then some high rep benching and that's it. Start fresher next week and see where I'm at then.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
