Daily Mindset
"No one was ever wise by chance" –Seneca

Let’s pretend we have two individuals out hiking in the woods.

The first trips over a root, and after scrambling back to his feet, kicks the root in frustration and storms off. The second individual trips over the very same root as well, but has a different response. After gathering himself, he looks around, refreshing himself of the importance to scan the path ahead. He then moves on, now paying closer attention to the ground in front of him.

One took the effort to learn from it, one did not. Wisdom isn’t by chance. It is by choice.

Teach / Specific Prep
[10:00 – 20:00]

There are six different barbell movements, but we’ll keep our focus simple today. Although the weight is light, the volume of reps will be challenging. Instead of muscling the weight up, let’s focus on jumping hard. However, there is a difference between jumping hard and jumping high. Rather than jumping high off the ground, especially in the Olympic lifts, we want to jump hard to transfer the force from the push into the ground directly into getting the barbell moving up.. This can be demonstrated with a high and floating bodyweight jump vs. a hard and fast bodyweight jump. Take a look at the Daily Video for a visual of this teaching point.
