2×5 @ 45
8×2 @ 255, less than a minute between sets. Felt fast and light.
8×1 @ 275, 30 seconds between sets

So, on a whim, I decided to see if I can hit my planned openers for the meet in May. On Friday, I pulled 405 sumo with no gear, coming back after taking a couple of weeks off due to a lower back issue. Today, I did this:
Reverse hypers, 2×10, incline situps, 2×10, shoulder complex, band stretching.
2×20 @ 45
2×3 @ 95
All of the singles were competition grip, competition pause, no liftoff, no spotters. The 300 was not 100% effort, but I made a deal with myself that if I hit 300 I could go home and have a sandwich.
Pulldowns (because I lied to myself)
Face Pull Superset with Pressdown
Shooting for a 1200 total might be aiming low. Assuming my squat hasn’t gone backwards, my openers will be 1110.
Had a little setback due to an inflamed SI joint (we think) due to running (we think). That should teach me to not run unless being chased by something I can’t shoot.
Everything up to the 405 was pretty fast and felt good. The 405 was a little bit of a grind, but I oddly felt pretty strong. Decided to shut it down there. I was thinking 405 would probably be an opener in May, so I’m OK with my first real heavy single pulling sumo with no gear being what I want my opener to be. A little left in the tank, but I didn’t want to push it.

No pain. That’s good. I’m a little tight now (about 90 minutes after training), but no more discomfort than when I got up this morning. I’ll do lots of stretching for the rest of the day.
