WEEK 4 Pull & Squat

PTC clinic 150725

ABOVE: PTC Strongman clinic July 25th – Introduction to the log clean-press

GOOD SESSION tonight. I performed the squats that I missed last Tuesday and they felt smooth and comfortable. I’m really enjoying how much better squatting feels once I’m done with DL… my coach suggested this was evidence of cold hamstrings, which could have been the reason for my ongoing knee problems. After my pulling, everything lower body is ready for the squat… well, except for my lower back; it still complains about the program, but a lot less than week 1. Week 1 was tough. I’m adjusting quickly though.

That was a new PR for me. Next week, I have to do it with 325.
