Track Girl Tuesday...
So...about this running form. Some (many) would say that that is incorrect form. That it’s not “textbook”. Nope. It’s not textbook. But running that way got me to the Olympic Final and to a (then) personal best of 10.85! Before this I had what we track folk call “backside mechanics” way too much going on behind me and I’m not just talking about my butt. I mean you could see my entire spike plate, and then I’d basically kick my own tail before striking the ground again. That takes SO LONG. And it’s an absolutely inefficient way to use my strength and speed. So what did we do? We corrected it. Coach had me doing B-runs like my life depended on it. It was an extreme hack. But it worked. So here’s what I’m trying to tell you...whatever your problem is, there is an answer. Find it. And don’t be surprised if the solution to YOUR puzzle doesn’t work for someone else. Or if someone else’s solution doesn’t work for you. Take ownership of your issues and find your solution. #whyyourenotatrackstar#ebook#linkinbio#getitwhileitsfree#trackandfield#tracknation
Close grip snatches and speedy deadlifts were the main movements for today’s lift 🏋️💪🐰

“The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.”
I remind myself of this every time the running gets tough 👌🏼
355 lb Relaxing Box Squats x 10RM. The key with this box squat variation is to just sit on the box, RELAX, then stand back up. This does so many things, but to simplify, it tightens up your squat fundamentally to build your leg strength and overall body strength ridiculously. Relax, REVISE, and Re-Grind on REPEAT! Training is all that simple only for those who have embraced THE DEMAND of its WORK! DeMel Tarver
That's going to leave a mark 😬
@shannonrowbury got spiked in the 5k, but was able to advance onto the next round 🙌🏼
