Across the board our members demonstrate above average form, but lately it just isn’t good enough. We need to get better. We need to start heading off these injuries before they get worse. We need to rewind, re-learn, and erase from our neural network the bad habits we keep hardwiring. We need to set the bar higher and demand more from ourselves.
The first step is desire. You have to want to learn the best way and follow through by putting the time in. And in some way you have to be willing to stop what you’re doing, admit you’re wrong, and hand yourself over to the process of learning again.
I yell all day. I bark out orders across the gym constantly. It’s often the same orders to the same people. Fuck! Sometimes I get frustrated as all hell. But that’s my job. I love training large groups. They are my favorite. But undeniably much is lost in the way of coaching as the groups gets large.
When we have smaller groups I sometimes get excited because there is more opportunity to teach and coach the intricacies of the movements prescribed that day. But there is an answer. This summer I’m going to put together a series of clinics to teach people how to do everything from Double-Unders to Kipping Pull-ups to Rope Climbs.
The point is we need to get better and this is my way of encouraging you to take time out of your already busy schedule to spend an hour or two perfecting the basics and setting the foundation for more advanced skills and movements.
Here is a working list of what I’m thinking. The clinics will be free for members.
Summer Clinic Series Suggestions
If you want to learn how to master the intricacies of the barbell you’ll have to take my OLY Lifting Camps. There you’ll learn how to properly OHS, Front Squat, and Deadlift with precision.
I love you guys. A lot. All I want is for you to be the best you can be. Undeniably. Unconditionally. Unequalled in your pursuit for perfection. That is what this gym stands for. That is what I stand for.
Onward. And stay tuned for clinic dates.Photos
