There is still 4 long weeks to go, but very happy to be sitting 23rd (only 8 spots from Regionals position) in SoCal after Week 1. Plus 6th in the strength portion :) Not bad for a gym that's only been open 2 1/2 years! #teamfortius #crossfit #crossfitopen #crossfitgames #crossfitfortius #socal #socalregionals #sandiego #sandiegocrossfit #barbell #barbellclub #gym #sandiegogym #strength #oly #olympiclifting #weightlifting #fortiuscompetitionteam #fortiusweightlifting #wod
3 weeks before Lester (@lesterhokw) and I begin the FuBarbell + The Training Geek USA Tour! I'm so excited to be bringing this learning opportunity to the community. Knowledge bombs are going to be dropped for sure! Seats are still available, head to: . www.FuBarbell.com/Events . Negotiating the Knees. The mistake commonly made for beginners is trying too hard to negotiate the knees. Common cues like "pushing the knees back" or "getting the shins vertical" often confuse beginners on how to move the bar past the knees to get into a good power position. Done incorrectly and this portion where the bar goes from below the knee to the knee and lastly above the knee can easily engage the arms and disengage the back and legs. This is usually due to the mistiming of the first pull where the lifter begins moving but fails to break the bar off the ground. This mistiming coupled along with the active pushing of the knees back results in the combined centre of mass being shifted forward. Possible outcomes in this instance include early straightening of the legs. Or being too far over the bar which subsequently results in the shoulders going behind the bar too early in the second pull. Instead, one should be thinking of maintaining engagement of the lats to keep the centre of mass of the bar close to that of the lifter and subsequently over the feet and actively use the legs to initiate the breaking off the ground. The result of that is a balanced pull off the ground, a rigid torso during the pull and correct positioning of the lifter for the power position to appropriately use the legs. This will then increase the quality and efficiency of the pull for a good lift. #FuBarbell #TheTrainingGeek #biomechanics #becauseSCIENCE #USAweightlifting #crossfit #education #crossfitgirls #crossfitmen #weightlifting #instagramfitness #liftingALLtheweights
