70kg, 70,kg, 75kg
 When I first cleaned 70 i though it was tough just because I was a little fatigued in the legs. By the time I got to my 3rd set 75kg was too light. 
My Abs are sore from the lean away pull-ups  i think. Perhaps used more abs rather than lat lever to hold myself into position from the other night. Also legs are sore today, same as glutes and hammies. I fell like an old man getting out of bed. Combo of 1 1/4 squats + lunges.
Sleep – solid 7 hours

102kg, 102kg, 112kg, 122kg, 107kg
Far out I thought that tempo squats were tough. These took the wind out of me.
B. DB forward lunges from platform (2-4 inch elevated) 16 continuous
steps x4; rest 2 min
12.5kg, 15kg, 15kg, 15kg I used a 20kg+10kg Plate stacked on top of each other. Def could have gone a little heavier on these although legs were a little fatigued.
C. Weighted lean away chin ups 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2; rest 90 seconds. These were interesting good lever practice. I used a 10kg vest. Towards the last few set/reps the last second was a drop.
D. Amrap 1-5 unbroken CTB chin ups ladders in 5 min
= 40 Reps didn’t get my 5’s complete on my 3rd set. Hands are the limiter on these. Almost did a -2 because felt I would tear. I feel that my height of my pull to the bar has improved heaps.

1st Training Phase Complete

Row 500m for time
+
20 min z1 jog
1:28.9 + 3km run @65% in 20 min
Was feeling pretty good. Probably went too hard too early. Was able to hit 1:17’s for for the first 250m then blew out to to low to mid 1:30’s would be interesting to perhaps sit at 1:25’s and try to hold it.
Legs were jelly when I got off the rower and didn’t get them back until after the first 1000m. Not sure why but I had heaps of saliva in my mouth that I had to keep spitting out during this first 1km. (almost every 20m) I was able to feel what 65% was and it was a pace I would be able to maintain for prob about another 5-10km

B. Rear foot elevated BB split squat @41×1, 6-8×4; rest 1 min bw legs

Not making excuses but was bloody hot probably 100 degrees at 3:30pm. Conditions weren’t perfect with a big head wind. Was hard to gauge 85-90% but looking back was definitely more on the 90% side rather than the 85%. No way would be able to squeeze another 15% effort.
