These past couple of weeks there have been a number of really cool ideas out there in theand advanced fitness world. These combined with the need of the small group to work on technique inspired me to create this intermediate-level full body workout with a middle portion that focuses on fine tuning technique for swings and snatches. There's some extra stuff added in to make this a full body workout including an "extra credit" mini circuit at the end.
So, you think you have a pretty decent "handle" on the <-----MORE----->swing, or if not, don't go heavy yet. However, when we THINK we have a good grasp of the swing with our usual , grabbing a heavier one can make it feel like a whole new challenge. OR... more likely it just decides to show you everything you might be doing wrong. While I don't mind swinging with light or moderate on occasion, it's always with the same mental intention as a heavy one. Light swings almost become a kind of isometric and timing exercise in an abstract sense. I ran into this idea just the other day while demonstrating a part of the swing at an intro session - the was so light that I had to really concentrate to make it "look right" and "feel right" as a demo. It was an extreme example of swinging something light like it is heavy.
