Got back on the bike today. Rode about 25 miles which is not enough since my century is right around the bend and I'm not ready. I think with learning all the new stuff from Underground strength Coach and CF I lost a bit of time in the saddle. So I ride again in the morning. This afternoon Di and I did a short but heavy sandbag and ring workout.
Sandbag Thrusters 5
Sandbag lunges 5
X 5
Jumping chins 5
15lb ball slams 5
X 5
PVC pipe overhead work. Shoulders and form. Trying to teach how to activate the lats and pull down the shoulder blades. It's a hard thing to teach.
Sandbag approach work. Start your lift as you walk up to the bag. Approach the bag and prepare your body for proper lifting. It's a state of mind. You walk up envisioning your self being ergonomic correct. Turn on the mind be aware of the body. Where you are in space.

Nice workout Jen. Louie looks like a cool dog. You will see my "coach" Emi in some of the pics on my blog.
How have you been teaching Lat pulling?
Have a great weekend.
