Coach’s Comments
We’ll be working diligently in the next few weeks to get the exercise library complete. I decided to keep it very simple. Each page will have a short video clip of the movement with a full description underneath of the technical aspects of each movement, common faults, and how we commonly use that movement to improve a specific fitness domain. Doing it this way will allow us to do a lot in a relatively short amount of time. 
 
This section is less for active members of the gym and more for online members who want to follow the workouts at home or at their local gym.

Rob has been working hard to improve his squat mechanics and hip mobility. Judging by the look of this single it seems to be paying off. A fine looking front squat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The goal during today’s leg assault was to do each set unbroken. That means going all the way through the set without stopping. Adding a 17# Bulgarian Bag makes the task more difficult. The key is actually to jump higher. Short jumps don’t allow for much rest. High jumps, while they require more deceleration at the bottom, provide a brief enough moment of relief in the air and helps maintain explosiveness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strongman training coming later this summer. The logs will be stripped and weighed. Nothing improves strength like picking heavy shit up, hoisting it over your head, or carrying for distance.
