Work on better positioning today! Notice how Sam’s hands are wider and the bar is racked across his shoulders. Keep an upright position in your squat! If you collapse forward and drop your elbows, the weight of the bar will be directly on your wrists.
This article on how you should be training was too good to not share.
Here are a few words from Craig about our upcoming competition team programming.
“Steve, Sam & I have been talking about competition programming. Both for people that may want to do individual competitions and those that want to compete as part of a team. We’re trying to gauge interest at this point with more to follow-up later.
I’ve talked to some people at night but don’t get a chance to see most of the morning and mid-day people (why don’t we see more of you on the weekend???). Please shoot me an e-mail (email@example.com) and let me know if you’re interested.
THIS IS NOT JUST FOR “FIRE BREATHERS.” Anyone that may just want to give it a shot or work on skills/conditioning/etc. are welcome. The program is likely to be supplemental work on top of the standard program.
This is also not your last opportunity to comment. There will likely be a weekend afternoon where we get together to gauge strengths & weaknesses. You are welcome to just show up there too.
Please let any of us know if you have any questions as we’re at the beginning stages.”
