1000 Squats Later

I completed the most useful certification yet, Olympic Lifting with the Mike’s Gym crew. The training had no sit-down-and-listen portion to it so we were doing snatches and cleans non-stop for the whole weekend. Some guessed over 1,000 squats, a couple of hundred snatches and cleans and some of us had to complete the Crossfit Open 12.5 WOD for extra spicy fun. All in all, the most useful athletic training I ever had. We practiced the footwork and the key positions of each lift until it literally got burned into long term muscle memory…

Once I can move my arms again, I’ll be looking forward to my max lifts go through the roof.
