A lively discussion erupted online the other day surrounding the use of chalk with. This is another one of those interesting situations where there's no one right answer, there's the right answer for you--which also may or may not be situation dependent! So in an effort to hopefully help you or your clients, here's some of my personal observations which may or may not help you. Please also realize that most of my personal workouts take place in ever-so-humid Florida. And for whatever reason I get moist hands pretty easily (to the point at which I could WATCH it materialize on my fingertips the other day when I was practicing some of
Here's a fun one from thesmall group yesterday. We reinforced the " wagon" to make it more heavy duty - while it's rated for 700lbs, the manufacturers seem to have thought we'd only use it for bags of mulch, not heavy iron ... a precision cut piece of plywood did the trick, so look for more heavy swing/deadlift workouts in the near future.
We started with a Primal Move warmup then everyone chose 2- 1 moderate or moderate to heavy, and a which could be pressed at least 6-8 times well (we wouldn't be going that high with the reps, but are using that number as a reference.. right now I'm pressing the for 8 reps pretty consistantly, so I'd choose that for my presses, the moderate to heavy for me would be the or --- other combos were bell and for moderate to heavy, bell, moderate to heavy, etc. The focus here of course is on form and quality, so don't go heavier in the attempt to "prove" something. That never ends up well.)
Having just returned from the San Diego, I had plenty of scribbled notes, new cues, and fun combos for my small group class... and don't worry, Wednesday people, your time is coming! :)
One of the TOUGHESTexercises to learn and to teach can be the . But, it's incredibly worthwhile to persist with it, even though it can be frustrating. I like to sandwich it into a workout to make sure the practice stays true without excessive frustration.
We started today's workout with a Primal Move inspired warm up,a few deadlifts and swings. Moderate to lightwere chosen so we could focus on our form.
Did you know that besides a pull up bar, the occasional "evil wheel", battling ropes, and some fun things from my friends at , my training arsenal also includes something surprising—a video camera.,
This is a tip I picked up on waaay back in the days of VHS and Hi-8. Videotape yourself performing whatever movement or exercise you're trying to troubleshoot. This is especially useful for people training remotely or independently. If something just doesn't "feel right" I
We came back from lunch and promptly started back in on the. I really love the - at first, waaaay back when (a couple years ago or more) I was first learning it, I thought it was actually very overwhelming. It seemed awkward and unnecessarily confusing, and somehow (now I have no idea how I was doing this) I'd always end up facing the opposite direction. Fortunately, with the coaching skills of Tim Shuman, I was able to quickly get a clue in the department. It's really not something you can teach yourself from videos - videos and DVDs are great when you're just using them to reinforce live coaching, or to build on your skills etc.
