The Challenge will include workouts focusing on proper movement patterns alongside nutrition and meal planning. 

If you know of anyone who is interested let me know by the end of this week so that we can get them set up!

Developing a Better Rack

A lot of missed Jerk attempts come from a weak front rack position. Either due to lack of flexibility, strength, familiarity or all of the above. Many people miss or “rush” their Jerk after a successful Clean simply because they do not like the feeling of having a PR heavy bar resting on their shoulders and close to their neck. 

If you want to build to having a heavier Jerk, first start at your front rack position. Are the elbows high leaving the bar resting on your shoulders? Are the lats engaged and pushing through the triceps? Is the torso and chest big and full creating a stable platform for a solid Dip and Drive? Are you comfortable holding heavy lifts in the rack while still keeping your breath and not getting light headed?

A good first step towards building this strength can come from time under tension. Holding the position while loaded and going over the cues mentioned above over and over until it’s second nature. 

4 Sets
2 Front Squats + 10 second Front Rack Hold + 1 Jerk x 3

5 Sets
12 Front Rack Walking Lunges (185/125)
12 Ring Dips
24 GHD Sit-Ups

Killing it on a Monday

I had the pleasure of watching many of you in today’s workout and one thing held constant through all the classes, you guys killed it! Everyone approached the thirty minute timeframe with a steady intense pace and everyone chose a weight that was challenging for them. It was great seeing how far people have progressed in their pull-ups and in their Weightlifting. Fast transitions and a focused determination throughout the lifts got people multiple high volume rounds! Great job guys, keep it up!

3 Sets
5 Snatch Grip Push Presses
1 Jerk Complex
(split jerk + 10 second front rack hold + split jerk + 10 second hold + split jerk)

4 Sets
8 Bench Press
30 Second L-Sit
