Here is a note from Coach Anthony
“Hey new Cove friends,
I am excited to get things kicked off tomorrow with everyone who’s planning on coming to weightlifting class. I just wanted to lay out my thoughts behind how I plan on approaching this class with everyone.In the interest of instilling some consistency and familiarity, we will be focusing on each lift independently for 6 week blocks for now. This first block will specifically focus on developing the clean and jerk, culminating in a test day in week 6 where we will have an opportunity to establish a number for a heavy single or PR. We’re going to be breaking down components of these lifts and progressively piecing them together throughout the 6 wk block. Some of our work will be done against a running clock in EMOM format with appropriate loads and rest intervals between lifts. I really feel that a huge aspect of getting people to trust their bodies and not overthink lifts, is to try and eliminate too much downtime between lifts that is often spent over-analyzing 99 things that should have gone differently in your last attempt. Good movement usually feels good, some reps will feel like trash, some will click and feel great. Our overall objective is to trend in the right direction with good/ healthy movement that “clicks” and then reinforce that with consistency in these positions. I am certainly not the barbell whisperer, but I have had my peaks and valleys, injuries and PR’s, and more than anything, for me, this sport is my mental bedrock. I hope you all enjoy this class and get out of it all of the strength, confidence, motivation, and psychological benefits it has to offer. And I hope you take the bad days when everything feels slow and crappy, and realize that those days are necessary in order to heal and build yourself back stronger. Progress is not a linear path, but I’m excited to share with you all everything that has helped me and that I have seen help others. In addition to our Sunday’s, I’ll be posting some accessory work to be done during the week for those of you that feel like you want to gear your overall training a bit more towards an Oly focused platform. I would suggest doing the accessory work on either Tues/ Thurs or Weds/ Fri. I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
Rest up tonight! 🏋️♀️🏋️💪✌️”
