We prefer to see the shoulder blades move together towards the spine at the top of the pullup for better muscular recruitment and efficiency. The smaller muscles of the arms fatigue quickly so if your sets are small ask yourself “AM I PINCHING MY SCAPS TOGETHER?!”

Tonight we are waxing snowboards and skis at 7:30pm. You don’t have to wax, ski, or snowboard if you just want to hang out. Bring your own beverages and we’ll tune our snow gear just in time for the snow dump this weekend!

In today’s workout we want a hard 8:00 cardio/stamina interval for max distance or reps. If you don’t reach the proper intensity it won’t feel like you accomplished anything and since we’re challenging your breath it’s okay to almost redline. You’ll just stop, catch your breath, then go again. We just want to challenge that ceiling and see how well we can buffer that discomfort.

WATCH: Knee valgus = caving in.

In most sports and activities coaches should have developed short and concise cues with their athletes as specific reminders to execute when needed.


One that gets some eye roll for some reason in the Olympic Weightlifting community is “REACH!” as it’s not as specific with direction or what the athlete should be activating.

We’d prefer a cue like “push back” if lacking upper back activation, “head through” if missing alignment, or “keep pushing” if arms or shoulders looked weak.

What do you think of when locking out overhead?
