Weekend in review – First and foremost, congratulations to Andrew Pankopp on his promotion to Level 4!! It was a great way to end the 2016 testing year. We look forward to seeing more of you moving up in 2017.
Second, huge HUGE shoutout to Tribe. PRs were flying around the gym all weekend.
Third, MVMNT BAOSOME disappeared to Savannah to run a race without telling anyone.
Today we start a 4 week Barbell Clean development program. We will be lifting on M/Tu/Th/Fr (except Thanksgiving Day). The goal is to get stronger in the Clean (the Power and Squat variations). To this end we will train Back and Front Squats, Romanian Deadlifts, and Clean Pulls, in addition to Cleans. As always, the focus is on quality execution of the movements, not raw weight lifted. Especially when it comes to Olympic lifts, developing good technique from the beginning will pay dividends down the line. To keep strength up, hit the squats, pulls, and deadlifts hard. When it comes to the Cleans, go a little lighter than your ego wants and make them perfect.
