Felt like my descent is improving.  I am beginning to develop the elusive 4th callous.  Hands are less tender.  I am becoming more consistent with my descents.  Getting into the OK grip on over 2/3 of the reps.  Still have work to do, but I feel like I am making progress.

Did some 32kg OAJ today for the first time.  They felt good and really forced me to use my legs.  The rack felt good and solid.  The extra weight really helps push those elbows to the iliac crest.  I noticed the biggest difference, however, when I went down to the 24kg for my second set.  The bell was flying up.  I was crisp with my second dip.   The handle was actually coming out of my hand from my leg drive.  Also made the 24 feel very light.  I will definitely have to work the 32kg OAJ into my workouts on a regular basis.
