Move with a Purpose

Been a while since I’ve posted a good word vomit…Now that its raining and my evening outdoor dreams are crushed I’ll bore you with some thoughts.

We have been squatting A LOT the past 4 weeks.  It becomes second nature…load the bar, do the work, on to the next.  Are we really focusing on giving every set our maximum effort?  Are we doing our best to make sure our feet our in the best position to make us successful?  There is no set blueprint for your squat setup.  There’s a general guideline which you all have been given and use but each person is different.  Use those warm up sets to play around with your foot positioning.  perhaps squaring up your feet a little, or trying a wider stance, or really driving of your knee on your descent…all of these could open a new door to a better squat.  It took me 2+ years to find a go to grip and hand position on my cleans…most of you haven’t been in the game that long so whats to say some experimenting with lighter loads would hurt?  Give it a try next time you’re warming up…you never know what you might learn.
