There’s Always Something You Can Fix

No matter how long you’ve been at this, there are always things to work on and improve. Even those of you who have been with us since the beginning, the coaches will still make adjustments and offer advice. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but we’re always seeking that imrovement. You might wonder why we’ll adjust the foot position on your deadlift when you’ve been deadlifting in our gym for 5 years. Why now? What did the coach miss over the last 5 years? Well, maybe nothing. Maybe we simply saw something different today that caused us to make an adjustment.

Below is an example to illustrate this point. Below is a post from Jason Khallipa. Maybe you’ve heard of him. You might say that not only has he been doing this CrossFit thing for a while, he’s also pretty good. Below he talks about an adjustment he made to his back squat. It doesn’t mean he’s been doing it wrong this whole time, it’s simply and adjutment to try, and from the sounds of it, it caused an improvement. We always have room to grow. Be open to it.

Worked with @jesseburdick on my back squat yesterday. I used to drive my elbows back and up. It was causing my upper back to round pretty bad. Instead Jesse recommended to keep my elbows down (pictured) which helped to keep my upper back vertical. Always something to try and learn! Let’s see how this elbow position helps in the next few weeks. If you don’t have a coach watching your movement….find one. It will definitely pay off.
