It’s a new month, we need new goals on the goal board!
I’m sure you’ve heard coaches talk about the set up position, whether it be the deadlift, clean, snatch, you name it. There’s a reason for it. #1 is it’s important. You can actually pull, press, squat, clean, etc more weight if you have a proper set up position that allows you to get into a great position for heavy weights.
Obviously this has to do with how you position not only your body, but your feet, hands, how you breathe and all that.
Another reason it’s important is not only can you lift more weight, you can also do it safely. So many people have little tweaks here and there, sometimes they forget to take the extra couple of seconds to get setup before they do the movement.
This seems simple enough when you’re just doing a heavy deadlift or squat, but when you mix in breathing hard, which is what we tend to do in crossfit, then it makes it even more difficult to get into proper positions.
The video’s below are great explanations and great information on what we want to see. Granted the sole purpose of the setup is for the deadlift since we’re doing that today, but you can apply this to every lift, and learning how to breathe and brace properly will make it safer and probably help with those heavier weights as well.
