It's a slide, not a jump

Published July 13, 2015

As we work more with lifts and become more comforable loading weight, try to remember when transitioning under the bar that your feet need to slide or glide into position. The donkey kick or jump, is an inefficient way to get under the bar. Think about it, why jump up if you are really trying to beat or meet the bar on the way down? Isn't it more efficient to stay as close to the ground as possible? Utilize those hips AND stay grounded. Hmmmmmm. Food for thought.
