What is the most important thing you would like to improve about your body?
For me, before I truly understood all aspects of health, it would be something on the outside, something that helped me to look better in my clothes and helps me to feel better about myself.
Now, it would be strength and flexibility, because I know if I stop eating IHOP and chocolate, the body will look great anyway.
But what if there was an exercise that took care of 4 major components of fitness. These major components:
1) Strength and power
3) Bone Strength
4) Core Strength
If there was an exercise that took care of all of these variables would you like to learn it?
I know I would!
How Do You Become A Great Olympic Lifter?
Olympic weightlifters amazingly have as much flexibility as gymnasts and yoga fanatics, especially in their hips! The are a phenomenal breed of athlete and they do not neglect the flexibility aspect of their training.
Today, I’m going to show you a video by Jerzy Gregorek as he demonstrates how you can improve your Olympic Weightlifting skills and the 4 components listed above.
Pretty amazing how one exercise can do that!
Before you watch the video, it may be worthwhile to note that this exercise is a variation of the Olympic Squat and require an upright torso.
As you will see in the video, when Jerzy demonstrates this very challenging exercise, every joint in his body is stack one on top of the other, while the only knees have moved away from that vertical stack.
When you try it, check with a buddy who can watch you or if you can film yourself, this way you can see how low you can go before form is lost.
Once you find that depth, stay just above it for a couple of weeks or so and then slowly increase your depths until you can get to the depth you’d like to go to.
Let’s get to training then, shall we!
Here is the video. Enjoy and train smart!
