7 mile MTB snow ride clearing many trees off the trail from the big storm. Followed up by 3 hours of humping lumber 1/4 mile through the woods to a buddie's hunting camp in progress. Soon to be followed up by much chair lounging watching the Pats vs. Indy!
You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes
3 rounds of:
200 m row
10 reps of ring rollout
death by wall balls
(1 wall ball in first minute, 2 in second, etc. until someone reached 20. I made it to 11 rounds, then had to start over, but we were allowed to stop when there were 3 people left, which means I did 11 rounds and then 6) about 20 min I HATE WALL BALLS
Rich, is the purpose of the "chin down" cue to use the packed neck position to tighten the trunk?
I'm not familiar with the term "packed neck," but if you experiment with trying to drive up with the hips while a friend presses down on your lower back with both a chin-up and a chin-down position, you'll find the latter is much, much stronger. The idea is for the cervical spine to be neutral and to maximize force production. And I have a history of trying to look up, which kills my hip drive, which is why my partner always yells "chin down" at me.
