Monday 5/13/19

Choosing the day YOU want to have. This week, why not try to think about 2 or 3 things you’re grateful for every morning. There is so much to be grateful for. And it doesn’t have to be magical things. You can be grateful for the plain, simple, every day things. Appreciating whatever shows up for you in life changes you on the inside. You radiate and generate more goodness for yourself when you’re aware of all you have and don’t focus on your have-nots.

Things I’m grateful for:
1. Cool breeze on the run to Sessions Street
2. A hilarious chat with a friend this weekend.
3. Having access to watch Game of Thrones!
4. Running my fingers through my pets’ hair.
5. Still having an opportunity to wish my mother a Happy Mother’s Day

As always these are suggested weights. Tempo training should make light weights feel much heavier. Remember the purpose of this training is to see how perfectly you can maintain form throughout the entire range of motion of the lift; this is not limit-strength training.

L4 – 24/18

Note that for the Dead Split Clean, the idea is to catch the bell in the rack at the BOTTOM of the split position, then STAND UP WITH IT STILL RACKED, before lowering the bell back to the floor and starting the next rep.
