160515 Sunday – California Regionals Day 3

Day 2 continued in the right direction with Team Anejo winning both event 4 and 5 and placing 2nd in event 6. This placed them at the top of the leaderboard going into the final day and with 3 events left for Sunday they have a great chance of going to the games and a good chance to stand atop the podium.

Alessandra Pichelli fought her way to 4th place overall with a 1st place event win and a 3rd place finish. If she does what we know she can do you will see her in Carson for the 5th year in a row.

Best of luck to all the teams and individuals tomorrow!

Coaching Tips: Push the pace on the barbell since the lateral shuffles can only go so fast. Real ‘go-getters’ can try to transition from the last thruster right into the SDHP (but don’t be stupid and hurt yourself if you can’t do it efficiently). Be sure to keep good back and shoulder discipline on the sumo deadlift high pull! If you are rounding the back or internally rotating the shoulder, slow down or drop weight.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 10 goblet squats, 20 Russian Kb swings, 3 rounds
