Saturday training, Sunday of rest

"There is nothing training cannot do. Nothing is above its reach. It can turn bad morals to good; it can destroy bad principles and recreate good ones; it can lift men to angelship."
~ Mark Twain

Slept in Saturday and it was everything I remembered it being! After a cup of coffee and quick bite to eat I went down to the gym and did some o-lifting practice and a short metcon.

push-jerk (skill practice)
9x3 @155lbs

My plan of 5x3 quickly turned into something like 9x3! Most of my sets were at 155lbs, got in two at 165 but went back to 155 to maintain focus on technique. Getting better at this lift, but I've still got a few bad habits I need to replace with the correct ones! I was fortunate to get some excellent tips and corrections from Michael Stanwyck of CrossFit LA who's visiting Austin this weekend. Thanks again Mike!
