Maelin and Heather partner deadlift for Anniversary Throwdown Workout #1. Today you're on your own. Good luck!
Today's Technique Tuesday video is with our favorite non-nonsense strength Coach, Mark Rippetoe. Today's heavy deadlifts will feel so much easier if you keep a vertical bar path. Your goal is to lift the bar from the floor in a straight path, any deviation from a straight line increases the vector forces on your body. You don't want to increase these, trust me.
It's very common, if you're not engaging your lats to keep the bar close, for the barbell to drift away from the body with each rep. Take the time to place the barbell back over your mid-foot before you pull for each and every rep. This reduces the chance of injury, and ensures a straight bar path.
Straight bar path, that's your goal, kind of like it was your goal to walk a straight path to the bar on Saturday night:-) â
Are you Ready for the Bozeman Locavore Challenge?
For the month of August, strive to eat food (at least the main ingredients, not necessarily oils, spices, etc) that was grown/raised from within 100 miles of home. If your coffee was roasted here, or your beer made here, that counts!
Take a photo of your Locavore meal, upload it to this public group and tag all of the folks who grew, raised, or otherwise produced your food.
The more photos you take and upload the higher your chance is of winning something. We will be awarding some prizes to folks who upload more than 60 photos and some prizes to folks who upload 30-60 photos.
