IMG_1336-0.JPG

Happy Birthday to Mike T. Kick some ass today Dr. Mike

Ok. Check out Braden showing how to throw down some triples. Notice how he keeps his body straight
Head level
Shoulders back
Hands stay low at his side
Jump is just a bit higher
Wrist turnover is faster.

If you don’t have triples. Practice fresh.

Make sure and get that mobi.

Instant mobi

IMG_1267.JPG

Get some instant mobi between sets! No set up needed, no bands, no whips, and no chains.

Motion is lotion so hitting your end range of motion for those joints is ideal for MOST of you. Remember there are always exceptions based on history, injury etc. YOU, the athlete are the CEO of your body and ultimately in charge of its care and upkeep. You should know your body’s sticky points and where you need to put some extra work in.

“tightness inhibits strength”

Now get some swimwod.net going and some mobi!

IMG_1155.JPG

So many amazing things happening with madathletes! Oly meets, CrossFit competitions, Prs, and so much more. We are having a blast working with you all!

Personally I am so blessed to be a part of the Barbells for Boobs event hosted by CrossFit Centex. What an amazing event. My son participated for the 3rd year in a row. I’m super proud of him as well as all the madathletes who are leveling up each and everyday. Mad coaches and great friends Chad and Jodi Vaughn host the Central Texas Oly Open the Sunday after. Can’t say enough about this whole group of people. Set yor
calendars next year gang.

Tempo for strength

Tempo

 

Research has shown (and we have seen it here live), that eccentric loading increases your strength.  It is definitely a top 3 in the secrets to getting stronger.   So, when we are on a strength bias we implement a good deal of tempo movements in our lifts.  Here is a quick little video of Nikki doing a 103×1 (which is my current favorite tempo) followed by a lighter afap set.  We like to incorporate the pause because as two time Olympian Chad Vaughn teaches you have to be comfortable in that “rock bottom” squat position.

 

Mike Cerbus has taken his tempo lifts to some new levels and it is paying great dividends! Check this tempo he’s working with…

 

Tempo lifts should definitely be a part of your strength program.
