  7. 240x0 Previous set was difficult. So I decided to skip this attempt.

The clean was definitely the hardest part of this lift. Had to re-grip using over/under after my double overhand couldn’t cut it. I haven’t needed to use over/under in any of the axle training so far in this program. So my hand transition was pretty clumsy.

I also had some pain through my right wrist on the palm side of my arm. Tight wrist wraps, thankfully, took care of the issue.
