Finishing The Second Pull

Posted by Melody

If you were in my OLY classes yesterday, this was the common focus of the hour; pulling the shoulders back behind the bar in the triple extension instead of cutting the pull short and letting the bar travel forward. Like Coach Burgener states in this video, you can get away with this fault at light weight, but it simply won't fly with the heavy. Check out this video and don't forget to pull back with those shoulders as you open the hips!
Moving forward, Wednesdays at Paradigm is OLY day. Classes will be barbell focused as we work on cleans and snatches, and will also include a met-con in the programming. All levels are welcome.

Just Squat!

Posted by Melody

Squat Challenge starts today! If you're gonna commit to 30 days, sign up at the gym...unless you aren't quite ready to take your squat to the next level...

*5 minutes per day in a deep squat position! Get back in your heels, using your elbows to drive your knees wide while simultaneously lifting your chest and arching your back. If you feel like it is easier for you to get into this position using a pole or a door jam for support, go for it! If you have good squat mobility, start bringing your stance a bit narrower, toes not quite as wide, and work on pushing knees past your toes.
*September 8th through October 8th = 31 days, so you have 1 built in miss day. If you miss more, you have to do 10 minutes the next day to stay in the game.
*The daily 5 minutes does not have to be done in one stretch. In fact if you are pretty tight making this position tough, you will benefit more from 5 separate 1 minute chunks throughout the day.

Workout for Mon, September 08, 2014

1) Skater Squats
2) C&J: 3 cleans followed by 3 split jerks, E2x7
3) Met-Con: 8m EMOM
- sidewalk run
- 15 DU's
