Nasty Girls – Thu 4.14.16
Focus on the Air Squats this time around on Nasty Girls. Perform some “Squat Therapy” during the skill sessions. This is a functional movement and should constantly be improved on. Greg Glassman’s article he writes:
“The squat is no more an invention of a coach or trainer than is the hiccup or sneeze. It is a vital,
natural, functional, component of your being.The squat, in the bottom position, is nature’s intended sitting posture (chairs are not part of your biological make-up), and the rise from the bottom to the stand is the bio-mechanically sound method by which we stand up. There is nothing contrived or artificial about this movement.”
Skill: Movement practice and warm up
Conditioning: “Nasty Girls”
– 50 Air Squats
– 7 Muscle Ups
– 10 Hang Power Cleans (135/ 95#)
* If you don’t have a Muscle Up, perform them on your knees on the rings, or perform a Burpee – to – Toes to Bar. Perform a Burpee, then jump up and grab the bar and perform as close to a toes to bar as possible! For the cleans, use 50-60% of your power clean weight from Wednesday. Make every Air Squat as good as you can.
