FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/SmGdw5ObIDI
  • Resource Links: CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • In today’s workout we’re looking for a moderately heavy clean that you can complete steady singles with during the workout. Athletes will feel this one in the lower body push and in the low back with the hip hinge involved in each movement. 
  • Row | 2:00 or less
  • Box Jumps | :90 or less 
  • Power Cleans | Moderate.  :90 or less

The One | Teaching Focus 
  • Open the hips 
  • In all 3 of these movements we want to teach our athletes how to maximize their efficiency and power output by opening the hips. On the rower, open the hips before pulling the handle. On the box, jump by opening the hips, don’t just tuck the legs to get onto the box. In the power clean, complete triple extension by fully opening the hips before pulling the barbell into your front rack. 

Modifications

Row

  • Reduce volume 
  • Sub machine 

Box jump

  • Reduce height 
  • Reduce volume 
  • Vertical tuck jumps 
  • Step ups 

Power Clean 

  • Reduce load 
  • Reduce volume 
  • Hang Variation 
  • Sub DBs

Logistics
  • If you’re short on rowers and need to manage a large class you can divide your athlete into two groups and have each group start on a different station. If athletes happen to get to a box at the same time, teach them how to share one box for alternating box jumps.

Mindset 

“If failure is not an option, neither is success.”

 

We fear the one who is willing to lose it all. The one who is willing to play full out with no reserves. The one who swings for the fences.

 

That’s a dangerous person. Dangerous enough… to accomplish something great.

 

We all have a comfort zone. A status quo. It’s warm, cozy, and familiar. But it’s a box, with a ceiling and walls that we can see and touch. It’s a world that cannot grow further than what it’s already grown to.

 

If we want to grow, we have to climb out of that world into the unknown. To face that chance that we may fall flat on our face, because we’re walking in new ground. Yet, as much as a “swing and a miss” may sting a bit, there’s something far worse. Worse than any of that is the pain of knowing that we didn’t try.

 

Life is so short.

There’s no time to bunt.

Let’s swing for the fences.
