We're starting our second Wendler cycle this week. We have your new 1RM numbers at the gym, but it's really simple to calculate them yourself. Add 5lbs to your press max and 10lbs to your back squat and deadlift maxes.
Check out this video from KStar on pre-squat mobility prep. Hmmm, looks like something we do for our dynamic warm-up, can you say spiderman with a twist?
Some of you are working hard to improve your OHS. We came across this blog post by Doug Naquin a masters athlete in Virginia. He followed specific mobility to address the issues in his tissues every day for four weeks and his improvement is remarkable. Check it out here.
