3/1 Whole Life Wednesday
Did you know that Jason is a professional filmmaker? He takes pictures of beauty regularly. His specialty is natural history.
It's Whole Life Wednesday and this week's practice is to stop and see the beauty in the world. The instructions are simple:
"Like so many of the other things we might rush past, beauty is one of those things that doesn’t typically wind up at the top of our priorities. There’s a reason people say, “Stop and smell the roses.” We don’t often do it!
Gymnastics Pressing Progressions
Every 2 mins for 20 mins, alternate between:
3 Deadlifts, pick load
3 Push Press, pick load
These should be heavy, aim for about 85% of your 1rep max for each lift. You get two barbells. The push presses come from the floor. We are building strength, stamina, endurance and power. Good luck!
Share your pictures of beauty with us in the comments or on our Facebook page.
2/28 Technique Tuesday
Today we're front squatting for load and reps. The front squat develops core strength in addition to leg strength. It is also essential for Olympic Weightlifting. Many people struggle with the front squat mostly because of the active shoulders required to hold the bar in the front rack. Shrug your shoulders to create a stable shelf for the bar to rest upon. Good luck!
Gymnastics Pulling Progression
Front Squat 1-10-1-20-1-30
Use the heaviest weight you can for each set.
Rest as needed between sets.
