Just a quick update on the progress for this week. I have two more videos to edit and get added. One is a thruster workout and the other is a hip thrust workout.
I had no idea when I set out to start these videos exactly what they’d teach me. As a coach, I watch and correct other athletes. It’s easy to see things that need to be corrected. As an athlete, it’s impossible to see yourself and correct things when you workout alone. I can’t stare at myself in a mirror mid snatch, thruster, or hip thrust and see where I’m doing something wrong.
In example, I did snatch pulls from the hang yesterday. I was rudely awakened by my horrible form on my snatch pull. That explains my not so great snatch form. A lot of bells and whistles go off when I watch these videos. It’s a great tool. Even if you don’t ever show a video publicly, seeing with your own eyes where your weaknesses are can be a real game changer.
I want to give a shout out to 43fitness for her long distance support and encouragement. She is a wonderful conspirator in this whole fitness journey, I learn from her more often than she knows.
