Since we are fully into the “holiday” season, I like to downshift a little bit and keep my training a little looser. Keeping too rigid of a structure this time of year tends to detract from the fun I have in real life. This means I will play things by feeling much more and do things that sound fun, while keeping within the framework of my goals. For example, I am really liking muscle snatches right now and want to focus on them a little. It will be cool to see if I can get that up to 200 pounds. Will it help my actual snatch? I have no idea. It won’t hurt it, and likely, it should help in the long run. 

It’s the same thing for heavy rack pulls. They are from just at the top of my knee and I know that they won’t do anything for my o-lifts (and frankly, little for my actual deadlift), but they are fun as hell to do and make me feel good after you do them. Last week I threw them in on my day 6 since one of the other lifters at my gym was doing them. I worked up to 765 for 2, then did 585 for 4x8. It wiped me out in the best way.
