Tuesday Right arm started hurting during warmups… grip was too weak on right side so continental cleans got a little ugly as the weight got heavier. I decided to call it after Axle because my arm was throbbing.
Monday Wanted to try to get 350lbs on front squat today… really bad. Had a little friendly competition with Keith and Steve and so I was motivated! Happy that I am feeling more comfortable with front squats…
Thursday Just got back from a 3 day conference that had me sitting for 12 hours a day… felt worse than if I had worked out heavy just the day before.
Thursday Today really didn’t go well at all. I was doing fine with the deadlifts but having some issues with choosing my belt.

Did another great workout at MCCF. Check out today’s WOD! Do You Even Squat? Weightlifting Back Squat (5-3-2-1-1-1) Work up to getting a new 1 Rep Max (1 RM). The majority of the time will be dedicated to getting a new 1 RM.
Thursday We had a great Thanksgiving here. The Morehouse family was joined by: Tim Bald, Feisal Suleiman, Travis Lucas, and the Doug & Lisa Lucas. Terrific time. No training for me. Just lots of food and friendship.
