"Train how you want to perform" with Kendrick Farris and Cara Heads Slaughter - video [ipod] [mov] [HD mov]

Excellent quote/video. It is true. When we are deeply engaged in our careers (EMS, police officer, military, etc.) or playing sport or simply in the middle of the sludge during a long met con, our movements will revert from perfect and to the lowest level of our training.
We lose efficiency and effectiveness unless that is how we trained. If we trained position and strength then that is what we fall back on. If we trained half-assed, well...
1 set every 2 min.

I love this dude. Kendrick is a talented athlete, a man of God and seems like a really nice guy.
I would love to see a video of Kendrick actually performing the movements. I watched him during the Olympics and it's a sight to behold!
Incredible form, range of motion, and strength!
I compete in wood chopping and the quote really applies to all that you do.
If you don't focus on proper technique and form, and really drill it in to yourself, then during a competition when you add intensity, everything starts to fall apart.
kg 20-30-40-50-60-63, reps of 3.
5 rounds for time
400 meter run
75# squat clean
75# push jerk
3 mu progressions red band
15 rope pull ups
26:06 first round used 150#/80#
ROM still an issue- keeping the shoulders active while getting under the bar. Keep pecking away at it.
Followed with bamboo pole OHS drills
75 - 95 - 105 - 115 - 125
@ Joe N. Nice job.
120 (pr) not the prettiest
Then worked on DU--I'm up to about 8-10 consistantly so frustrating, but getting better.
Musings chilling in the filter...
95 x 3
115 x 3
135 x 2
135 x 1
135 x 2
135 x 0
I think it is safe to use Beast Mode to describe Kendrick.
None of which where the Prettiest.

@Glorrybelle Thank you to and agree about the snatches!
Thanks Cara and Kendrick!
Started with bergener warmup. 95lb. Working technique. Performed as 3 singles because I could not maintain hook grip. May have been a little heavy.
95-105-115-123-95. Trying a wider grip.
M / 23 / 185 lbs / 6'
Hang power snatch 3-3-3-3-3 reps:

Soldier for Life

just for form, spent the weekend driving
got one up at 135, but it was ugly
Hands were hurting pretty bad from calises, thus grip was shoddy.
1 min 30 seconds between sets
Reposting per Lynne!
"I'm in the twilight of my beauty. In a decade I'm going to need a lot of proof." --Sarah Nicole Prickett
"I'm taking notes, Dr. White. Honest. I'm not just texting." --Random Sales Rep
The question arises with some frequency: where do I find the topics on which I muse? In truth, most of the time "musings" arises from something that is either on my mind or in front of me just before I sit down to type. Oh sure, I occasionally have the foresight to jot down an idea or thought during the week, but as often as not I misplace a note as reliably as I misplace the memory of a really good idea.
If memory only did serve.
Last night was spent mostly in the company of a friend, The Dude, with whom I also do business. Sitting across from one another in a quite lovely restaurant we did just enough business to count, but mostly we just talked about our lives. I remember saying a couple of things that made me go:"Oh, that'll make a great topic for 'Musings'"; my friend made a point of identifying a couple for me. There's this sense, this feeling, a kind of dim light in the mist of my morning mind that alerts me to the apparently fleeting existence of ideas I'm sure would have been brilliant once I'd committed them to electrons here, were they to have survived the night.
Alas, they did not.
I'm told that this need not be the case. Even as I hurtle through middle age, careening between the crevasses that keep cropping up in what was once solid (memory, muscle, et al), I'm told that I can remember everything if I want! Ms. Prickett would counsel judicious (one would hope) use of the "selfie", the ubiquitous cellphone portrait or landscape that forever marks a visual memory. From there it would find it's way to any number of memories. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, wherever. Evidence freely shared that, alas, the twilight of my beauty has long since passed. If, that is, the sun ever shined there at all.
Random Sales Rep would show me his Evernote app, or some other portal to a virtual urn that I could fill with ideas that heretofore required either a more effective neural network or a more easily located notepad to ensure their survival. Once there I need only curate my little corner of the cloud. Just think of what Sunday musings could be if I could always remember everything.
Hmmm. About that.
You see, what I DO remember of last night is how I felt. How often and how easily both The Dude and I smiled. The mist that is so effectively hiding the more granular memories is actually emitting a rather warm glow. It's much like the memories evoked as Mrs. bingo and I have unearthed the Kodachromes of our personal antiquity. They've faded, both the photos on paper and the finer details of that time the photo has frozen, but they, too, seem to evoke a glow within that is warmer for their lack of detail.
I think this is better. At least for me. What I might gain from the "selfie" or the endless shelf space of the cloud I fear I might lose in the feeling. You see, for all of the cracks that have appeared over time in my memory, it seems that I have retained a rather amazing capacity to remember feelings. Indeed, it almost seems as if my ability to recall emotion is enhanced by relying solely on what memory may lie only between my ears. What I remember of last night, without the aid of Evernote or Instagram, is that The Dude and I were really quite happy.
Give it a try.
I'll see you next week (if I remember)...
95, 115, 125, 130, 95 - high hang position
Form got bad so dropped wt. down to work on form
55 x 5
Did Hang Squat Snatch instead
140, 145, 145, 150, 150
130615 - 125, 130, 135, 140, 145

47.5kg x 2
3 Mile run
3 X 5
95# Hang Snatch
20 K's to E's
Think the oly seminar I took last month is paying off. Feet were a little wide on 160, but no press-outs. Struggled with 165 - maybe mental, maybe tired. Came back down to try to dial in form at a reasonably-heavy weight.
155 PR by 20#
155 xF/F/F (pressed all 3)
155 x2+F (pressed on last 1)
30-40-45-50-55 failed on 2 - failed on 2
false grip was very hard to hold on 55 kg
2k sand run
Hang power snatch
*form not great on last set and shoulders feeling smoked from yesterday so I called it a day at 135
CFWU-2. Superman. Burgener. DU.
Last rep pretty ugly. Lots of pressing & a big stumble forward involved in getting last rep. Tried to focus on getting hips back at beg of each rep.
Not too bad at end. Possibly room for more. Good job keeping back & butt tight. Bar hitting thighs instead of hips though.
Did Triangle metcon afterward.
Not bad overall. First time doing this WOD. 135 somewhat challenging.
previous pr 105#.
3x75,95,105,115,120(a little sloppy)
off 12" blocks, on min every min for 10 min. started at 135 ended at 185. Not max effort. worked on technique

A lot of pressing up to finish at 133…
