Hey CFB!

Hope you’re having an awesome week of training!  Here’s my second video blog on the Level II Pistol Programming.  If you have any questions please post to comments or catch me in the gym. 

Be sure to scale appropriately for your ability and master whatever level of the program you are on.  If you don’t know you’re ability or what it means to master each movement, come find me and I’ll help you out.

Have a great end of the week!

Hey CFB!

How’s the skill work going?  Hope you’re pumped for some more work on Pistols!  Keep an eye out on Friday for a video blog showing the movements for level one from last week.  Here’s Level II.  Be sure you can complete everything in Level I with good form before stepping up to Level II.  Check the skill board for level I progressions and how to execute the program.  Let me know if you have any questions!

vijaybackHowdy CFB!  How’s your training going?  When’s the last time you mastered a skill?  Have you done a strict Handstand Push Up or Double Under yet?  Have you dreamed of doing Pistols?  Well this September it’s time to make those dreams a reality!  You’re coaches will be rolling out extra skill programming to be done before and/or after classes.  In order to improve and continually progress we must challenge ourselves, and that means working on our goats on a consistent basis.

I’ll be helping everyone master Pistols!

Before we get going I’d like you all to read an article on why your squat may be different then someone else’s.  This way we’re on the same page and can begin working on why you don’t have a pistol yet.  We need to figure out your optimal stance for the squat and then consider how this might affect your setup for the pistol and what you need to improve.  As you read this article you’ll discover why some people can squat narrow and some people have to squat wide.  Should everyone strive to squat with their butt to their heels?  You shall find out.

After checking out this article and video, comment here with your ideal squat stance and why you think that is.
