WOD – Monday 12/3

December is the month of the goal. We would like each of you to think about something that gets you excited about achieving. How can we help you get there? Whether it is 10 unbroken DU’s, your first pull-up, Rx a WOD with HS walks in it, or even increasing your strict press by 5#. A little focused attention will go a long way. Talk to a coach and develop a plan for the month of December.

Posterior chain prep for strength

Sumo deadlift –
Why sumo?
It is important to use both set ups for balance. However the sumo is much more beneficial because it will significantly increase your conventional deadlift AND your sumo deadlift, but, because of the differences in set-up, there are far less risks with the sumo deadlift. A more upright torso put less strain on the lower back while it allows for an easier engagement of the posterior chain. Making the big muscles do all the moving, and letting the little muscles act as stabilizers, something they much prefer.

Why do we use the conventional deadlift at all then? Well because of its obvious overlap to the olympic lifts. A conventional deadlift and a clean are very similar in setup and execution.
