Boy those cleans are a real pain with singles, lol.

My MP has always been a bit stubborn, and by that I mean I am a poor presser. SO I came up with this 'scheme' but got injured before I could implement it, go figure. The way it is performed is pretty straightforward. Work up to a maximal single and then perform a higher density set with something around 90% (or just the first single). I'm going to loosely follow a 4,3,5,2 (8,6,10,2 singles volume cut in half) for the volume of the singles and then probably hit 3-6 reps for the higher density set.

The rationale is that the singles build strength, duh, and with all the acclimation and potentiation it makes the higher density set 'easier'. With the higher density I'm hoping to consolidate gains on a continual basis and give a little push with mass building. You could say it is similar to a backoff set, just with a lower volume and density than my usual backoff sets.

175x6, 175x5, 155x8, 155x6

Didn't deload the barbell today.


Felt like doing some arm work (maybe 'arm blasting' is contagious??) so I did a couple sets for triceps and biceps.
