    “Do not rest the weight on the racks between exercises.”
    Does this mean you want us to clean the bar up from the floor before each set?

    Mark, I think it means moving from Stick Press –> Push Press –> Push Jerk you are not allowed to rack the weight.

    Oh. That’s what I did the last couple times. I read that line and saw “between rounds”. That would be MEAN!

    Ok, this morning I had a pretty good demonstration, from and athlete, we won’t say who, about letting your brain dictate you lift, where on the previous attempt she failed at her second rep, but after watching the others nailing all 3 with a heavier weight she proceded to do 3 reps at that weight. What goes through your mind before you start a heavy lift? Are you setting yourself up for failure even before you started? Remember, I like this quote from Kelly Starret from SFCF “…Not unlike an olympic high diver, your body WILL follow your head…”, so get mad before you lift, let all of your frustrations out, and go for it, the worst that can happen is you fail, big deal, try again next time, but you control the outcome of anything you do, just set your mind up for it, See you on Tuesday
