“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”

Great job with the Olympic lifts yesterday! Dead Lifts, Front Squats, and Hang Cleans are tough, but rewarding lifts. Everyone in the weightroom gave a great effort and accomplished what we wanted from our first day of doing these lifts.

Do some body weight squats this weekend and work on your form.
Toes forward
Feet Shoulder Width
Weight on your heels and instep (stay off the toes)

If you have trouble getting deeper then 90 degrees and keeping the above form, grab onto a chair and give yourself some support. The more comfortable you can get in the correct deep squat position will lead you to being a better athlete.

Good luck and have a nice weekend.
