Reminder: classes tomorrow are at 6a, 7a, 8a, 9a, 12p, and 6p and will meet at the new space.  We are working setting our schedule soon.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email or via text!

Work up to a light and fast peak set of 5 on the press.

METCON: Death by thrusters, (95/65lbs.), starting at 5 reps the 1st minute, 6 reps the 2nd minute, etc.

Take a look see at this, folks…

We want a nice open shoulder before we approach the press.  It means that our bodies don’t have to do any MORE work than necessary to get where we’re going – that is, there’s no drag on the muscle groups you use to press when you go to put stuff over your head.

How do you get from the frame on the left to the frame in the middle?  Just 5 minutes of stretching… imagine what would happen with 10!  How do you get from the frame on the left ALL the way to the right?  Dan John said it best, “If it’s important, do it every day.”

Learn how to take care of yourselves, thruster monsters.  It’s important.

Get some more ideas in the video below… specifically, check out the first 2 minutes of the video below.  Post thoughts to comments!
