Today's workout felt a bit easier than I expected. Based mostly on one of Paul's sessions from a couple of weeks ago I scaled the weights to roughly 75%, which is what I usually do. However, I think I could have gone a little heavier on the front and back squats, even if it was only by 5 or 10 pounds more.
I used a bit of spare time at the end to practice doing hang squat cleans properly; i.e. not clean and then squat. I think this went okay. I did a few reps with an empty 45lb bar, then added 15lb to each side (75lb total), ending with a few reps at the RXed 95lb.
While I was waiting for Cher I tried a few overhead squats with an empty 25lb bar, trying to get the overhead grip right while keeping my balance and squatting low. A grip of just past shoulder width seems to work best for me. I started to do overheads months ago and for some reason never went back to them. I'll try them again next week with some weight.
