Moving with reckless abandon is one thing- moving with deliberate, technical aggression is something else entirely; One is to be improved on, and the other is to be feared.
If lifting position breaks, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the remaining sets safely and uninterrupted.
Goal is fluid, seamless transition from movement to movement, and hand-to-hand switches from side-to-side.
Accumulate lots of quality reps, and add weight to fact-check position as needed.
Select challenging weights based on the ability to complete each set uninterrupted and with quality.
Transition seamlessly from movement to movement, adjusting either position or variation if mechanics erode.
Work to “True” failure (loss of physical positioning) not “Relative” failure (loss of mental endurance).
If duration is short, pace must be vicious.
If sets require interruption at chosen weight, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted.
Breathe, focus, and move fast- take missing the clock off the table as an option.
Never make the mental mistake of thinking you’re too advanced for skill work in any realm.
If position breaks, range of motion shortens, or pressing sets require interruption, adjust accordingly and continue safely.
Safety considered, there is value to making yourself move in simple conditioning drills.
Power and position govern weight- If we lose our strong hinge, back rounds, or legs fail to snap straight in the “drive” portion of the movement, adjust accordingly and continue safely.
If sets require interruption at chosen weight, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted.
