  1. Just watched all this.

    In for future updates...good stuff.


  2. Some great places to train back at my old home in connecticut. The above videos were from Lightning Fitness. Thursday we went down to Just Performance Fitness to do some more strong man training. Below is the atlas stones. This was my first run through, and I get my time down to 17 seconds by the final attempt. Rocks went 215, 185, 135, 95.

  5. Didn't have anyone to record todays horizontal upper body exercises. I did record a quick (and awesome) activation for the scapula retractors and depressors.

  7. Worked up to a number of triples today on the parallel box pause-explode squat. Did 5 x 3 @ 335 lbs. Then some good mornings, and finished off with dumbbell RFE split squats (3x10 @ 70 lb dumbbells) and supine psoas marches with a light ankle band. Here was one of today's mobility exercsies that I was able to record:

  9. I'm getting over bronchitis and did some heavy presses before hand. Last year at this time I hit 252 for 3, but it was only parallel depth, not full depth. My goal is get to 275 for a single by this summer.

    Jason,

    How do I fight the barbell from traveling forward in the overhead squat? This problem kills my snatch, as I can get most weight over my head, but I can't keep it back far enough to stand up with it. Obviously, the first problem is shoulder flexibility. In the catch position, I try to flex my upper lats as hard as possible to pull the barbell back, but I still lose the bar in front of me.

  11. That's a good question, as you can see it got away from me on the second rep.

    I've always been coached to forcefully shrug my shoulders up when holding the weight over head. Your lower traps and serratus are already engaged to rotate the scapula, so pushing up against the weight should in theory complete the stabilization of it. I think the second part is keeping it centered over your center of gravity, or over the ankles.

  12. The overhead squat and snatch are te two lifts I'm going to focus on becoming proficient at this year. I suck at them and consequently tend to avoid them. It's keeping the bar from coming forward which is my hang up as well.

    Okay, I've been coached to shrug my shoulders up as well. I have my first Oly meet at the end of January (only been lifting for a month and a half since my surgery), so I'm trying using this meet as a learning experience. I think my problem my be keeping it centered over my center of gravity like you said. I think I have a bad habit of scooting back during the pull phase.

    I have a similar issue whereby I hit the final pull too early and the bar hits low thigh instead of mid/high thigh. The result is I always catch it slightly in front of me.

    Good luck.

    That is my exact problem. I always have the red brush marks a little above my knee, so I can tell I hit real low. I'll see if I can PM you a video.

  16. Check out this drill


  17. You can also hip snatches

    I watch a lot of Jon North's and Glen Pendlay's videos. They have some good stuff to share.

    Not quite. I can't seem to find the video where North is teaching it at catalyst athletics. Basically you are doing the snatch from a hang, but with the bar held at the hip and staright into the pull - no rdl.

    That movement is a toughie. If anyone is struggling with their pull, start working in hip snatches and watch your pull explode.

    I was doing hip cleans a few months ago. My thoracic hasn't allowed me to snatch yet. Working towards better movement.

    Look for pendlay vids.

    Yeah, glen pendlay knows his stuff. I always watch videos from California strength, where he frequents.

    Hope you get better soon. Nothing beats the oly lifts (in my opinion)

    I play cricket and if I decide to play soccer this year, I play premier league. May play.

    Cricket relies on power and the phosphate systems. Just gotta keep doing my rehab and prehab.

    I never played cricket. It seems like a lot of fun.

    Definitely keep up with it. It is always tough, but the hard work will pay off. (Cliche but true)

    Playing a good level of reps. I'm too entrenched with work and study to take it further but my younger bro is 17 and playing for an u19s Aussie spot

    I've been learning to play cricket out here in Afghanistan. I work with a lot of Aussies here. Guys from 7 RAR, 1&2 Commando Reg. Been a blast with these guys. We play with a tennis ball inside the gym. The basket ball court area has a big net draped over it. It's tough unlearning how to throw like it's a baseball..lol
