Beast Mode: College Freaks

The Freaks are in college now, let that sink in for a minute.

Ricky Carey and crew just finished their first collegiate year and are now back at the Champions Club for the Summer. The 9 am session from last Tuesday featured Slick, Elizabeth Banet, David Saporito, Katie Shakes, and Mrs. Fitz. They put in a great performance on the wallball/box jump ladder. Check it out.

To the Window, to the Wall

Thanks to the Kavanuaghs birthday workout, we hit wallballs for the first time in what seemed like forever. A lot of athletes, newbies especially (sorry guys) displayed the wallball over the head technique.

Mrs. Anderson held the wallball that way throughout the entire squat on the bottom. While this isn't neccearily a bad technique because the head stays neutral, it might not be the best for our purpose. Wallballs are essentially thrusters in disguise and give us a good platform to work on front squats and presses at the same time. If the ball is held above the head, you're missing out on the position that our ever lovely hot doctor is demonstrating below.

If the ball is held above the head, it also robs some range of motion of a full press. Keeping the wallball at the chest during the bottom of the movement will cause a little more stress on the ankles (if you're like me and have zero ankle range) and be a little harder to keep a neutral head, but will ultimately help you out.

Beast Mode: Banet Invasion

Yesterday, Jacqueline, Elizabeth, and Erika Banet were the only inhabitants at the 5 pm session. Still, they proved to compete very well amongst themselves - as the workout played pretty evenly to their strengths. The ending proved to be very close as expected. Here's how it turned out.
