Pause Squat

Work up to a heavy 3 on the pause squat.

Your partner will give you the "Lift" command on every rep. The point of a paused squat is to develop some strength in the bottom position by spending a bit longer ther. Work on your organization and trouble shoot any issues you might be having.

Work up to a heavy but perfect set on the following barbell complex:
4 Hang Power Cleans
3 Front Squats
2 Push Presses or Push Jerks

Re-posting b/c I missed this by a second...

Thanks for the positive feedback on the clean video. Very happy about it. I needed that breakthrough.

Love the programming. Another opportunity to say that our coaches are the best.

Had such a great time at the movie night, awesome initiative!
Happy to put some faces to the names I see on here a lot, haha hey Christel!
Oh and the movie was stupidly hilarious!
I'm gonna throw Paul Rudd's cafeteria tantrum next time coaches tell us to strip down our barbells...kidding!

Rings seminar people: 50/50 chance I won't be able to make it today. ConEdison is a bunch of idiots. Either way, I'm planning on doing some rings + handstand practice tomorrow at open gym.

Recovery squat: 225x3, 250x3, 275x3
First work since back tweak Friday. Felt decent, back felt fine.

Private w/ David to work on my cleans...
Did drill work for foot work and getting in proper position to catch. Basicslly hang cleans to Fromt squat to hang cleans up to 145# and then to 155 for singles of hang power cleans to squat.
Fun and nice to work with David. Definitely a big help.

@Emma-Lisa, hi :)

Anyone interested in doing more gymnastics stuff: rings strength with Ken is awesomely fun, challenging, and rewarding.

Today for some reason my pull up was gone....my dip finally appeared though. I love when new things click that are essential parts of bigger goals.
Rings goal summer 2013- muscle up. It's in my near future.

My Cousin Vinny would be great for a movie night. A few more suggestions: Shawn of the Dead, Princess Bride, Spirited Away, Kill Bil Vol. 1, Mean Girls, Mystery Men.

To add to the recent comments about SoulCycle, here is Fabrizio Goldstein, who apparently prefers the moniker "Fat Jew":

Great class today with Josh and McD

Pause Squat with Ellie and Cassie...
45x5, 95x5, 125x3, 135x3, 140x3
These were great. Really like practicing the control and finding that spot at the bottom. I generally go really really really low on my squat and am aiming to be able to find a good squat with less depth so I don't have so far to travel down and up as I add more weight on the bar!

4 HC, 3 FSqt, 2 S2OH:
Drills @ 33#
Compex @ 63#, 83#, 93#

During 93#, b/t my third and fourth HC, I turned the bar over to put it in my hip crease to find my hook grip again... and I guess I got a little overzealous with the weight. It came down into my hips and back and knocked me right over onto my ass and almost into Julian lifting behind me. wow. Was happy to hear that McDowell has also done this. Picked it back up to finish the cycle at 93. Loved it!

@Whitney I'm friends with Fat Jew and he is exactly like you see in the video, in real life. Seriously. That is no act. Sorry to have missed all the shenanigans this weekend but camping has been awesome.

Texting from the woods!

June 23, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJB

@JB - can we go to one of his citibike soulcycles soon??

June 23, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterWhitney B

@Whitney - I just texted my friend Nick to see if we can do some shenanigans with him. Seriously.
