Axle Clean & Strict Presses (clean every rep)
Seated Axle Lockouts (forehead height)
30 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Ugh, I hate cleaning the weights. So much bruising haha. Really surprised myself on these today and I think my technique is getting better and better with the axle. Really taking advantage of the rebound from racking the weight to just shove it up there. I could tell when my timing was off as the weight felt 10x heavier. I had thought 220lbs would be my top end but I was wrong. Then I thought 240lbs was it but again I was wrong. I'd say the 250lbs was easier because adding the plates kept it from bouncing. Only downside to this workout (besides belly bruises) was that my right shoulder just got super achy after my last rep with 250lbs. Going to need to keep an eye on it. Moved from there on to seated axle stuff. I wasn't expecting much here on account of doing them last week and doing a whole bunch of strict pressing beforehand. Achy shoulder didn't help matters. Did what I could but 225lbs was too much for me this time. Did a bunch of stretching to finish up the day.
