We had to coax Rob into going up from 95#. On his first few attempts he had to bail. It definitely messes with your head. The positive benefits of the BB TGU are many, as are the negatives like getting hurt or dropping the bar on your leg, arm, or worse your face.


A lot of push-ups the last two days. 260 to be exact if you factor in burpees.


Niko hitting a PR at 115#.


The warm-up should look, smell, and feel like the work of the day. In this case, I planned a lot of overhead pressing so we warmed up with about 10-minutes of various overhead carries to wake everything up and hammer home proper spinal position.

 

I keep telling Katie her running is getting in the way of her strength training (jokingly of course). She’s strong and has the ability to get way stronger. To come in and throw up a 65# PR right in the middle of her running season is certainly impressive.
