Pretty great workout. Today I was determined to stick with using the clean grip for my push presses – typically these hurt by the time I finish a few warmup sets due to my right wrist having poor mobility (broken several times in the past), but today the clean grip was actually pretty comfortable. It feels really awkward, and strange not gripping the bar for each press, but using the clean grip creates a natural head-forward movement, which keeps my form nice and tight. Hit a pretty easy 285 double, then did some triples @ 255, which all felt really solid. The clean grip will hopefully continue to feel OK. Moved on to full squats and worked up to a pretty smooth 600 single, then backed down to go after some rep PRs. I ended up beating my previous 3 and 5rm bests with efforts @ 565 and 515. Happy with that! Did some flat db bench, which felt great, then ended things with curls and ab work.
