Time to Squat

Everyone has been crushing our squats lately! Remember to be aggressive but smart with your numbers. Only move up in weight if you are still keeping good form and maintaining a strong stable position throughput the entire range of motion of each Squat.

Everyone Can Get Better on Pull-Ups

We sometimes jump ahead of ourselves and put off improving upon the basics. The truth is we all could get better at a very simple yet essential movement, the Pull-Up. 

Even if you already have Muscle Ups and Chest to Bar Pull-Ups improving upon your fundamental base should still be a priority. A lot of times we want to learn the hardest, fanciest movements but first you should ask yourself: Can I even do 15 strict pull-ups? Can I even do 10?

Without the strength and stability in both your musculature and supporting ligaments and tendons that comes from strict controlled movements, you’re only increasing your chances of injury during high rep kipping movements. Please! I know the strict movements are not as exciting but don’t ignore them. Don’t assume you’ve mastered the Pull-up and ignore them every time they come up in a workout, choosing instead to do banded Muscle Ups. Become a pro at the basics and everything else will improve along with it. Be honest with yourself and put the time in to improve and shore up any weaknesses.

Squat School

This video is lengthy but I found it very useful in bringing to light how obviously not everyone is built the same and not everyone should set up for their squat the same. Either depending on mobility or body type your squat might be totally different from the person squatting right next to you. The goal is to find your safest, most stable, strongest position that allows you to move as efficiently as possible. There is no one size fits all to this thing.

Heavy is Relative

Make the heavy movements “heavy” for you. Scale up or Scale down, it’s all about what you want to get out of it.
