I like to use a tennis ball or "The Stick".
I'm sure you would like "The Stick", Mr. I Shower With 50 Other Dudes.

Jesus, I knew you said 365 was a PR, but I didn't know it was 45 lbs.

Snatch Complex:

Friday is usually a random day of lifting so i decided to do some good old oly lifting. Overall it went well. Given my shoulder problems i kept the snatches light and cleans dont bother it so i was able to put some weight on the bar. Fun day of lifting

Ive been neglecting to post here this past week but once these finals are over im looking forward to getting back to a solid routine once again.

Overall today was ok. I started to feel really lightheaded and dizzy after my fifth squat set. This continued through the rest of my leg workout. I need to remember to drink more water with the hot weather finally here.

Remember to start loading up on water about 2 hours or so before you lift so that way the water has time to digest, get into the bloodstream, and go to your organs before you lift. It has helped me quite a bit especially with the CRWC being so hot and humid recently

Trained out at Phil Johnson's gym today so i used kg for my deadlift weights. the +8.8lbs on the deadlift felt really good. I was feeling very ambitious to hit my next set so i rushed the rest time more than i think i should have. Every thing else felt great.

Squats
warmups

10x115
2x8x135
2x3x155

Behind neck military press

DB shoulder press
4x10x60

Lat db raises
reverse cable fly
front raises w/ 45 lbs plate



Notes: Thanks to Nate and Kyle i found out i was dipping on my left side when squatting. This is something i had no idea i was doing and i am going to focus on trying to correct this. I also came to the realization that i need to invest in someway of recording myself so i can see my errors.

After the squats i went on to do a bunch of shoulder work. I have been unable to load my wrist recently due to a fuck up on a clean PR attempt, so all my pressing has been cut out recently. I kept it all light but did a shit ton of reps to compensate for the lack of being able to do a lot of weight. I plan on trying some light benching on thursday so hopefully that goes well.
