WHITEBOARD – 28 June 2011


Max Box Jump 

Notes: Both feet must land on the top of the surface and you have to be able to control the landing to a full stand (Hips and knees open).

Remember, tonight is the first Olympic Lifting Club session.  It is ten dollars to help support the club (hopefully we will be getting those platforms soon!), and we should be able to get a good amount of work.  I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone as having a coach’s eye on your lifts is very important.  Also, we don’t get a lot of chances to lift amongst one another, so take advantage of the group setting as a great motivator.

Take a look at the link on the main board for a good article illustrator why we incorporate olympic lifts for general fitness.  No other movement can stimulate such great results!

Skip to 7:20 for evidence of some serious athleticism due to Olympic Lifting:

  • John Donne – Meditation 17

    No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee...
