With enhanced use of musculature that most of our athlete haven't used in the past or have underused we want to spend some time focusing on priming, strengthening, engaging and recovering our shoulders. We utilize the small muscles in our shoulders or power and strength in our overhead movements, especially our olympic lifts like the snatch, the jerk, the overhead squat. Since we have begun utilizing more overhead stability, I want to encourage you to integrate Crossover Symmetry into your everyday routine.
This next 8 weeks, we will be focusing on our Snatch, Clean and Jerk and Split Jerk.
Most of us get to the gym 5-10 minutes before class. Instead of just waiting for class to start, get to the bands and warm up and activate the shoulders. If you have some time at the end of class, go through the recovery.
You can find all how to's in the training zone below. You can also follow the cards that are hanging above the bands for images and simple instructions on how to utilize CS or you can scan the QR code on the bottom of the cards to follow video instructions.
When in doubt.... ask a coach
