Special Announcement: The afternoon class will be at 4:00pm due to the party. See you all there.
- Snatch – max for day
- Clean & jerk – max for day
- Back squat – max for day
Here are some basic precautions that need to be followed for safety:
1) Don’t be stupid. Don’t max if you’re injured to the extent that a max will aggravate the problem. This will cost you in at least training time, and possibly time off of work if you’re ultra-stupid.
2) Don’t be greedy. Learn to recognize the difference between greed and ambition, and be merely ambitious.
3) Don’t be pig-headed. If your first attempt tells you that you need to lower your second, do so, without a misplaced sense of diminished self-worth. It’s a test, and it’s designed to measure what’s there, not create something that’s not. That’s what training is for.
