Heather push pressing about one week before her due date.
Remember to keep the elbows high on the push press (as Heather is doing wonderfully). It saves the wrists! The pressure should be all on the shoulder, and not on the hands.
Mobility: Shoulder mobility
Skill Practice Warm Up: Ring outs. 10 reps adjusting feet to find the hardest position can still do one and come back up.
Workout: Push Press
3 – 3 – 3 – 3 – 3
Metabolic Conditioning Workout: None!
Spend the time working on goats, skills, and accessory lifts like barbell rows, ring rows, handstand work, etc! You can also make up a box squat day if you missed the last one. The next squat day will be Saturday.
(don’t worry, tomorrow’s scheduled workout is going to be a doozy).
The Routines, If-Then Self Talk, Where and When To-do List, all really jive with what I have been learning about willpower lately. A lot of this stuff can be applied to reaching your goals and helping sustain good habits for diet and the gym. The other tips are great too! -jj
Wondering what a competition is like, but too afraid to sign up as an athlete – yet? Start by volunteering! Volunteers don’t have to be “judges”, they can help move around equipment, operate stop watches, etc. It is a great way to get a little competition exposure without having to compete. You also get free swag and don’t have to pay admission!
And you are in luck, the Sactown Throwdown needs volunteers! Even if you can only do one (or part) of a day, register here.
