For the Coaches:

The one | Teaching Focus 
  • Straight bar 

  • Since we’re highlighting focus on our strict press we want to continue to dial in the mechanics of a straight bar path. Cue the chin back before the athlete’s press. Cue for the athlete to pull back on the bar as they press. You can provide a tactile or visual cue using a PVC pipe to teach this. Place the barbell upright aligned with the athletes midfoot and as they pull the bar into the PVC as they press. 

  • In part 1, manage your room so that there are no more than 3 athletes per station. Call athletes on the minute so that you have an opportunity to get eyes on each athlete as they lift. Every athlete should receive an intentional cue, correction, or encouragement through the lift. 

  • In part 2, if you need to manage limited DBs you can have athletes lunge using a KB or similar weighted object so that the DBs can be shared by partners for the Jerks. You’ll want to start athletes at different stations in order for this to work
