74 Jerks With 28kg

Had a rough week at work and too little sleep.  Decided to take yesterday off and caught up on my sleep last night.  Today I was feeling strong and attempted my CMS numbers.

Warm Up: Rib Pull/Arm Sweep
OAJ(16kg) 10/10
OAJ(20kg) 10/10
Jerk(20kg) 10
OAJ(24kg) 10/10
Jerk(24kg) 10
Jerk(28kg) - 10 minutes @ 8,8,8,8,8,6,8,6,8,6 - 74 reps
Swing(40kg) 25/25 - 1 hand switch

This pacing scheme works very well for me.  Slowing my rate over the last 5 minutes helps me stay out of the "red zone" as I am able to control my breathing and truly rest in the rack during the 6 rpm sets.  If I am feeling strong I can always pick up a few extra reps during the last minute.
