Sunday’s Rant

“I want to get better at ___________.”

That’s a great first step towards improvement. But it can take a back step very quickly if you go right to heavy weights.

Let’s say you want to improve your snatch by getting under the bar. There’s no magical percentage that will get you there. You need to find the weight that you can do it perfectly, and do it again and again. After you feel like you could never miss, add 5#. If that’s not perfect, drop it back down again.

Missing the same lift over and over is teaching your body how to do it wrong. Removing weight is not failure. It’s strategic in learning the correct movement patterns.

Stay tuned for upcoming clinics to help you with your form.
