This past weekend I represented Werk San at the Hammer Strength coaching clinic in Miami. Werk San is a sponsor of these clinics. This one was held at Florida International University;a beautiful campus, a beautiful training facility. I really enjoyed all the presenters, especially the presentations by FIU coach Roderick Moore, Big House Power owner and coach Joe Kenn and the strnegth coach for the McCallie School in Chattanooga, Tennessee Bryan Van Vleet.
I'm adopting an idea I learned from Joe Kenn's talk. Resetting an athlete's training age. From now on when someone comes to work with me for the first time, their training age becomes zero. I don't care what you know or how much experience you have or how many years you have trained, you haven't worked with me yet so you don't work the way I will have you work. We start over. Roll the odometer back to zero.
Training: missed all weekend due to travel. Last night barbell snatches up to 60kg x 3, power cleans up to 70kg x 3, box squats up to 140kg x 5 (an experiment) then 10 minutes of 24kg clean and press, 5 RPMs switching on the minute. 50 reps total.
Tonight's session; pulls from above knee to 190kg x 1. Then swings for 10 minutes, 50/40/30/20/10 each arm, 16kg.
