Saturday’s are for sharing the love. Bring a friend in for Family Throw Down (free as always)… And then go enjoy some (insert delicious food here) together… because you earned it!
If you’re feeling frisky hop in on Sunday for a hat trick or hero, group suffering starts at 10. If not… Enjoy the weekend. See you back in the gym Monday!
Got some heavy front squats in today because I love the way it makes my wrists feel 😑
Prior PR for a strict front squat was 295 and was pumped to be able to bust that out tonight with some big chains.
1 x 285
1 x 295
I was gonna do some accessory work afterwards but the WOD, for some reason, looked like alot of fun. Big mistake... Got done at 22:18 and averaged between a 1:45 - 1:50 500m each time I was on the rower. All around great day at the gym.
Much love and respect to my #fitfam @dandaly @belitefit @forzag @cheslap @peelfit @davidscottpt who kicked ass today ... kudos to @deanstattmann and @ebenezersamuel23 for putting together a stellar event!! #MensHealth

During the pull of the clean and snatch, the goal is to stay balanced and produce as much force as possible into the ground. Let's talk about how to stay balanced today! (TURN SOUND ON TO LISTEN TO THE VIDEO COMMENTARY)👇🏼
As the barbell is initially pulled from the floor, you’ll likely feel pressure toward the balls of your feet. However, By driving your heels into the ground, you’ll ensure your body stays in balance over the entire foot. As the lifter extends, the pressure on the foot will shift forward quickly to the balls of the foot as in a jumping motion. 🏋🏽
If this is timed correctly, the lifter stays balanced and will land in the same place when catching the bar. Those who jump backwards or forwards when catching the bar often do so because they are not balanced during the initial pull. Next time you lift, focus on maintaining your balance over the entire foot and driving directly upwards with your legs. If you find yourself jumping forward or backward, you now know your balance is shifting rather than staying in the same place.👊🏻👊🏻
