Busy Week Continues - Spring Training Progression: Week 2, Day 2

Power Clean from Deficit
4 Sets of 5 Reps @ 60%

Clean Pull from Blocks Below the Knee
4 Sets of 5 Reps @ 80%

Front Squat + Jerk
4 Sets of 3 F.S. + 3 Jr. @ 70%

Seated Press
4 Sets of 4 Reps

For whatever reason, this week seems much busier than weeks past.  Again, I couldn't finish my training in one setting, and again, I still left out two exercises (back extensions and box jumps).

A perk for the day, however, was to see the vert, broad jump and bench portion of Pro Day at USC.  Some pretty amazing athletes.  It still baffles me that the results of these test can mean hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions, of dollars for these guys.

With regards to my training, the front squat + jerk was a m-fer.  Certainly not a fun complex.  By the 2 and third jerk, you're spent.  Making the third jerk is a matter of will.

Looking forward to hitting some more sets of 10 on the squats this week!  YEAH!!!
