foam rolling

thoracic extension and rotation x 10 each side

Third world squat x 60 seconds

shoulder mobility

plantar fascia stretch

MMA misery 85lbs x 6reps x 5sets with 60 seconds rest

circuit consisting of : (one minute rest between each set)

power cleans 115lbs x 8 x 8

assisted pullups 160 assist x 8 x 8

overhead press 115lbs x 8 x 8

Had to put straps on after the second set, forearms were just fried. Needed the straps for both the power cleans and pullups. Crazy insane "pump" in my forearms from this circuit, even with the straps on. Is it the explosive part of power cleans? the insane time under tension for the pullups? WTH?? The exercises became basically impossible without straps, and too easy (except for the last few reps, again failing at the forearms) with the straps. Kind of a first for me.

Then, after a few minutes rest, deadlift
