Overhead Med Ball Throw
4 Sets of 5 Reps

Med Ball Throw
4 Sets of 5 Reps

Broad Jumps
3 Sets of 3 Jumps

Clean Deadlift
4 Sets of 4 Reps @ 95%

Back Squat
4 Sets of 10 Reps @ 60% w/ 1 Minute Rest

Overhead Squat
4 Sets of 5 Reps

Today was tough as hell, but sometimes you just have to toughen up and punch what's in front of you in the throat to come out on top.  I had to really dig deep to get these squats done with just a minute rest, but the great news is that I came out unscathed!

The confidence coming out of today is huge with regards to squats.  Squats and overall strength is a big weakness of mine, and this progression thus far is really staring my weakness in the eye and kicking the sh*# out of it.  If you expect to improve at anything, you need to relentlessly attack your weaknesses head on.  Never give up and keep fighting!

I'm expecting a really big jump in my strength numbers, and in turn my clean & jerk numbers.  We'll just have to see!
