Saturday:
Ride bike
Power cleans 10x105 8x115, 6x125 4x135 1x145

Snatch 10x85 8x85 6x85

DB press 3x8x35

Lat pull-down 3x8x110
Ride bike home.

i felt so deflated yesterday, I couldn't get underneath the bar, lifting up explosively in the Oly lifts just wasn't happening. So before I could go any further and potentially hurt myself, I just went to the presses and pull-downs, then left.

Sunday, came back and finished the workout:

Ride bike
Jerks 10x105 8x115 6x125 4x135 2x155 (FUCK YES)

BB high pulls 3x8x105
3x10 push-ups

Snatch deads 8x135 2x8x145

Single arm curls 3x5x50

single arm presses 3x7x60

Then 13 minutes of box jumps, 60 single arm KB swings with 50lbs each side, jump rope, broad jumps, single-leg jumps.

Ride home feeling much better about myself as I actually hit my marks on the jerks.

Hey Farmer! Didn't mean to blow off your comment!

I'm doin' okay. Still gotta see the doc tomorrow but only way to go is forward, and he wants me to keep lifting and exercising so I'm golden.

Kinda had to redo my Wednesday and Saturday workouts. I think my lack of energy on Saturday was due to putting three big lifts in and not separating them out, so I revised them a bit.

Ride bike to trail and do 12 minutes of sprints.

Jerks 10x105, 8x115, 6x125, 4x135, 2x155, fail gloriously on a 1x165 (got the bar half way up but couldn't snap the rest of it)

Power cleans 3x8x115

Snatches 3x8x85

Snatch dead 3x8x145

Cable high pulls 3x8x110

Single arm, cable high pulls 3x8x40

Delt lat fly 3x8x27.5 (some punk was using the 25s)

Arnolds 3x8x20

5 minutes of farmer walks

Bike home

Congratz on the obstacle course! 12th out of 132 is pretty damn good dudette! That sucks about the rope burn though, I hate those i've gotten quite a few on my hands from roping cattle.

So neuro took me off one drug and put me on another: propranolol, 20mg twice a day. It's a beta blockers, but because it's so low dosage, it won't technically affect my blood pressure (which is usually 116/72, so quite good actually). If I fail this drug, it will make 3 documented medications I have failed (note: I've failed at least three already, but insurance needs it documented), and having chronic migraines, I will qualify for Botox injections. IDK how I feel about that yet, but I guess I'll have to figure it out.

I just came back from a conference over the weekend, and went straight to the gym from a three hour drive home. For whatever reason, my chest was tightening to be quite uncomfortable on the deads, so I decided to just do one big PR and get on with it.
