Comments: Did well on squats and snatches. The snatches really gave me a workout and I felt it in my hips, shoulders, and forearms. After a couple sets I realized that it was better to focus on explosive hip force from the bottom of the lift instead of the shrugging of the weight to get it overhead. Shrugs didn't feel too well, I'll most likely drop the weight a bit and work on a perfect ROM and maybe even try them with the trap bar instead of a barbell. I rushed curls because it was past close time at the gym so I didn't want to keep the girl working there waiting if she was ready to leave, plus I was tired as hell anyways. That's why I didn't do the last set and why the reps were low on the 3rd set - I didn't give myself hardly enough rest time between sets. Oh well, still a great workout
