•Know what workout you want to do or lift you want to work.
•The coach is there to help but this is not a personal training session.
•Work your “goats”.

Sunday Reading

 Snatch and Clean Extension: Be Patient

Bring the barbell back into your body as it leaves the floor, and continue using the lats to push it back into the hips – not near the hips, but actually into the hips. (Understand that the hips DO move forward toward the bar as well – however, the effort to move the bar back to the hips helps prevent the lifter from shifting forward as is the natural tendency, and from over-reaching the hips through the bar).

But most importantly, I know the difference between training, testing and competing.
