Still on my hang clean bender, following the same routine as during the previous 2 weeks. I’d say this is when I was starting to get a bit frustrated with this style of training, as the novelty was starting to wear off. . . plus I started to notice my bench strength was beginning to decline as a consequence of the complete lack of volume (How am I supposed to get swoll when I’m only performing 15-25 reps a week??) . Such is life.
