Why Are We Maxing on Fridays?

the_snatch_5Last Friday, the program was to max/PR (personal record) back squat.

Today, the programming is to max Snatch and/or Clean and Jerk.

I don’t know about you all, but by Friday I’m wiped.  Completely and totally.  Today I’m really sore in my lats and arms.  Last week it was my legs.  I hiked an insane hike on Sunday and I don’t think I’m recovered from that one either.

So who decides to max on Fridays?  I didn’t even try last week with the back squat and it probably won’t happen this week.  It’s just a bad idea.  Maxing should be on Mondays.  When my body and my mind is fresh since a lot of the times maxing is in the brain.  Thoughts?
