It's the final stretch of this challenge. You should have the hang of it by now.
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.
The last week of our challenges kicks off with the basic movements at some volume.
If sets require interruption at chosen weight, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted.
Somewhere in the middle, breaking things up is a Romanian deadlift.
Choices today are: Kettlebell snatch (from floor), dumbbell power snatch, kettlebell clean + press/ push press.
We do some intense mace work today and we're loving every minute.
Snatch on toes makes an appearance today. Excellent way to train for speed under the bar.
Stand strong and organized- tension helps build strength, provided we stay engaged in the process.
A good set of wide grip behind the neck push presses to work on today.
A nice round of pause jerks to end the day today.
Position and range of motion dictate weight- If chosen weight breaks either, adjust immediately and continue safely.
Jump like a frog but only after you give your legs a serious workout.
If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted.
Today will tax your nervous system as much as test your skills.
Rest as needed between sets and movements, and adjust weight/ tension immediately if position breaks.
Mind your posture, don’t soften up, and work hard- it doesn’t have to be fast, but it shouldn’t be lazy.
