Everyone back from Regionals weekend inspired and tan?! Let’s get back to work!
Hope you all got at least a little something out of May’s bodyweight warmups. I know I heard anecdotal evidence of improvement in obvious movements, such as pull-ups, push-ups, and toes-to-bar, as well as some that may have been less apparent, like double-unders. It just goes to show that a rising tide (of fitness!) lifts all ships. There’ll be more direct, quantitative ways to check your progress over the past month in the very near future.
It’s June, so we’re switching from bodyweight back to the barbell for another round of Olympic Weightlifting warmups. There’s a large neurological piece to Olympic Weightlifting, so doing rep after rep with little to no weight, and great technique develops movement patterns and muscle memory. This will allow you to think less and just lift your next PR. Plus it’s a great way to get loose. Like dancing through the agility ladder with 20kg held overhead.
