    Coach Gregg hasn’t put up his daily advice, so I’ll fill in! Glute Ham Raises and Harop Curls are terrific accessory movements to compliment major lifts (i.e., squats, deadlifts, etc). The hamstring and the quad work together to extend the hip joint. So not only will stronger hamstrings and quads up your major lifts, but you will develop more explosive power. Cleans, snatches, jerks, box jumps, wall balls, basically any movement that opens the hip (hint hint we do lots of these) will become improved!

    And then a test of grip strength, followed by mental fortitude, followed by more grip strength. Keep the chest up and numb out the grip pain during the walk. During the squats, the KBs will really by trying to pull you down–fire those upper back muscles and keep that chest up!

    Thanks Joey! At a midweek seminar near Savannah, GA and been caught up with travel. Perhaps you could fill in again tomorrow?
