To be honest, in the big picture, taking a few days off once every 3-4 months would be in my best interests. It just gets tough ramping things back up after a week of living a basically sedentary lifestyle. I seem to move a bit slower, have a little less endurance, and lack a little bit of mobility. Breaks are good to take every once in a while right?

Lessons learned from last week:
- Must work on wrist flexibility to get into the front rack position. This made the push jerks damn near impossible. I lose all upward momentum while jerking it. Yeah I went there.
- Its time to buy my own jump rope. The ones at the Box are fine when learning how to do double unders, but now that I know how to do them it is more important to use the same rope every time for every rep. Plus the Rogue SR1 with the ball bearings spin so nicely.
- Keep working on my shoulder mobility. I was making good progress on my overhead squat. The improved mobility was lost over the two missed weeks. Time to get back on KStar's website to improve my shoulder mobility.
