Si se puede
I was thinking about all sorts of cheesy cliches to start this off, but the one above is the most appropriate. What I mean is a couple of things. First of all, we give you the tools, but you have to use them. I think back to the cycle where we did a heavy rotation of strict pull ups. Many of you got your first, then second and then many strict pull ups (some with heavy weight.) The question is how many of you have kept up with it? After all it is a strength and a skill, and it takes practice. There are many of the things that we do that take practice and patience to overcome. It is okay to come a little early, or stay a few minutes after to do a few pull ups, dips, handstand or roll out to get the flexibility to do other things. Granted there might not be the room to work on your clean, but there is always some thing you can work on. Get better.
15 front squats (95/75)
20 box jump overs (24/20)
15 lateral hurdles (over the front squat bar)
