[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]Well, either it is tendonitis or I hyper extended my left elbow. Now Iím leaning towards the hyper extension. The pain is mostly on the inside of the elbow joint, though there are occasional twinges or sharper pains along the outside. Usually right after I wake up in the morning. And as the day goes by, my elbow feels better.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]My pressing is suffering right now, so I have a plan. I will switch to doing single bell training, one arm at a time, for now. I will see if that can get me through the density training protocol in a bit better fashion. I will use the full 16 minutes for each arm in the beginning, resulting in a 32 minute pressing session at first. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]If that doesnít work, I will switch back to the ROP protocol for the presses and work my way up to better pressing strength than where I am now. I wonít be doing cleans with each rep Ė just pressing using the ladder technique. Light, medium and heavy days. Once I get back to where Iím doing 5x1,2,3,4,5, then Iíll switch back to density training for the remaining work to get to 16 total reps.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]Once Iím able to hit the 16 reps per arm, Iíll work on 16 reps with both bells.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]As for the snatch training, I really need to extend the ballistic session to at least 10 minutes per session, maybe 15 to 20. This stuff of doing 3x12 and calling it good isnít. So after I complete the snatch training, Iíll extend the ballistic portion through swings, cleans, high pulls and such. Nothing too extreme Ė just extending the conditioning portion of the training to where I think I could get more benefit from it. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3][COLOR=#0000ff]This evening was 1 arm presses on the minute with the 32 8x2. The left side wasnít real strong, but the right was just fine. 2x10 CoC Trainer, 2x5 CoC #1, 2x3 CoC #2, 5x5 jandas with 25 lbs. The #1 and #2 reps were, for the most part, partials. I can get the #1 closed with the right hand, but not yet with the left. The jandas are getting better. I feel like Iím almost ready to break contact with the ground and sit-up.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
