For those of you that have been keeping track, this is my third day of training in a row. My training partner and I have decided to rearrange our schedule so that we can partake in team training on Saturdays. This being the case, our only option was to train for a third day straight and my body is not happy with me.

Although I felt tired, this was actually a really great training session. Two weeks ago I hit 275 for a heavy triple and today I hit 365 for a heavy single. As I’ve mentioned before, front squat was always a movement that I was terrible at but after struggling through some sets and pushing forward I have seen great improvements.
In other news, I finally got a video! It brings me great pleasure to include a video in one of my posts so that you can actually see what I am doing. This video is of my final set on front squats during which I hit 345 for a double.
