I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying it being football season again!
We are starting this week off with a bang. A nice “open style” workout for you all on this Monday. The open is less than a month away, and they love to program stuff like this with a heavier barbell as the workout goes on.
Today the whole point is to get to that heavy barbell, even if you scale the load, we want it to be heavy! It should slow you down, heck, you might even fail a rep or 2 and that’s okay. We want to treat today like the open. Meaning if the weight was really hard for you, in the open you’d have no choice but to keep trying that weight, the same thing for today!
The video below is just some basic cues, but who knows, maybe it’ll help you with cleaning as well. Keep in mind the cue should be short and simple. You shouldn’t be thinking a million things before trying to lift a heavy barbell!
