Hey athletes!  More Olympic lifting work tomorrow (told you we had a lot this week).  We will be doing some percentage work of the full lifts (NOT the power variation).  These shouldn’t be heavy.  We want to practice our bar body contact, becoming “connected” to the barbell quickly (getting it to our front rack position), and driving out of the squat hole.  6 sets may not seem like a lot, but if you get warmed up properly, spend enough time on positioning, and give your full attention and energy to each set it will feel like a lot.  Finally, we finish with an EMOM that is a combination of metabolic conditioning, core work, and explosive hip opening drills (banded KB swings).  You should remember the Banded Swings from last week, if not see video on FB page for demo.
