"Two things can define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything."

Some days you will feel like the hulk and other days you might just need an extra PUMP!! This week will test how proactive and patient you are with your movements. We are maxing on power clean ( from the floor), Hang Squat Clean and Power Jerk. I will still keep your engine running to keep the momentum of work capacity we have been building for you. Ok so what do I mean about how proactive you are being? For example, we all have certain movements that are more diffficult than others. Some come more natural because of our background, body type, past injuries, sports, flexibility and strength. So we tend to like the ones we are good at, which is totally normal. Now, the good thing is that you don't have to program for yourself, so my job is to program enough variety to help you through different physical skills and prepare you for anything. Yours would be to do your homework and be proactive in terms of stretching, cooling down, working on mobility, and skills that you can do extra reps at home. 5- 10 minutes a day will create a difference when it comes to getting better in any specific movement or lift. Sometimes we don't really know what to do to get better or if we are doing too much which is becoming counterproductive so make sure to ask so I can help the best I can.
All of this builds patience and gives you that extra PUMP you need those days when your handstand push ups are truly a challenge but yet you can strict press close to your body weight?! So let this week be the one you work on your PATIENCE while being PROACTIVE , we are here for you! It takes time to develop good quality movements =)



Since we are talking about new and quality movements, THIS THURSDAY for Gymnastics day we will be working on Rope Climb Techniques and Handstand techniques so make sure not to miss it and bring long socks just in case for the rope burn!!! Rope climbing can be very fun and challenging if you become efficient at it like any other movement. You can ask Kolbie (Fivedollaz Nguyen) how exhilarating it is to get your first rope climb ever and get to the top haha!
We have another fun week coming up plus two more weeks on The Chad Attack before we start a new cycle! Look for a recap on POMP's Snatch Clinic by Coach Jenna at the end of the week :)

Stay Strong,
