DDD #42

DDD #42, but a day early

A little mini-meet in prep - no presses, just a little stretching

DL: conventional, wore DL slippers (as I've done once a week or so lately)

225 x 2 double over
275 x 1 double over
325 x 1 right under
350 x 1 fail, 1, 1 left under

Failed rep was interesting - I haven't sat back enough in most of my training reps, going for more push than pull, but keeping my weight back is _necessary_ with 350.  I also forgot that a heavy DL will take time to push through - I gave up pretty quickly on the first, failed attempt.

Bar path for me seems straight up, not pulling into shins, but pulling into shins sometimes feels better, so will experiment with that some more next time, which is Thursday.

20 kg x 3L/R
22.27 kg x 3L/R

20 kg x 3L/R
22.27 kg x 3L/R

24 kg x 2L/R

22.27 kg x 4L/R

20 kg x 6L/R - most presses in quite a while, total of 24 each side, and all felt great


bw + 20 kg on right foot x 2
bw + 20 kg on left foot x 2

Felt right shoulder was coming up in first set, worked on keeping it down in second set - very interesting, and near the limits of my shoulder/t-spine mobility.  But second set was good/better, will try to stick with this feeling in the future


295 x 6 alternating singles, first right under then left under.  All standup resets, all quick drops
