Pausing Below Parallel

Brett jumping

As we humans get older, it’s a fact that we become more fragile.

A very common injury (and fear) is slipping or falling because of what comes out of it: head injuries like concussions and traumatic brain injuries, hip fractures, back and spinal cord injuries like slipped discs, dislocated shoulders/elbows/wrists, sprains, strains, and fractures.

Whenever we have to put our hands down to plank, to crawl, to rest, we work on getting better at our connection to the ground.

Burpees are the best example of this. We program these not only as a great conditioning exercise, but because you’ll have confidence falling down, and the knowledge tin getting back up.

Deads, Dubs & Barbell Snatches

Carlos G

It’s important to value INTENSITY over VOLUME in the grand scheme of training. When you come across something fairly short in time (10:00 or less), then your goal is hard and fast. Don’t let up because you feel like it- putting ourselves in positions of discomfort are what take us to the next level!

The Start

Nathan and Guillaume doing some movement & mobility prior to their first Weightlifting meet earlier this year

Since we’re at the beginning of a Nutrition Challenge we’re going to hit a bunch of things we can “benchmark” and retest at the end of the cycle. This way we can measure your performance progress.

Expect pistols/clean & jerks, big chipper, Linchpin Test 1 (run/thruster/pullup), dumbbell snatch/box jump/burpees, RYAN, 2:00 Assault Bike test, FIGHT GONE BETTER, and double unders/snatches. Not to mention it’s Week 5 of the Olympic Weightlifting cycle- would anyone be up for an in-house Weightlifting Meet? Also the beginning of the new Powerlifting cycle.

You can still register for the Nutrition Challenge! Deadline is end of day, Friday the 13th
