training update

So far my training strategy is:

1) improve shoulder mobility
2) improve core strength
3) continue to try to improve squat performance

I'm incorporating wide grip behind the neck presses with an olympic bar to improve shoulder motion. Also going to include direct core work to see if it improves squat and deadlift maxes.

Working on raw squat, made a slight modification to my stance. Turned feet more towards the front instead of allowing them to flare out 30*. So far it feels like there is more glute activation. Really trying to improve posterior chain strength. Will let front squats hit knee extension strength.

Going to continue to hit barbell rows hard to see if they improve my bench press. Weight is holding at approx 235 but I need to get it down at least 10 lbs before the 100% Raw meet in September.

June has been a bit of a 'deload' month after the competition but will be looking to increase workout frequency in July to the following schedule:

Monday: Back Squat/Bench Press
Tuesday: Front Squat/Barbell Row
Wednesday: Deadlift
Thursday: Back Squat/Bench Press
Friday: Front Squat/Barbell Row
Saturday: Team workout, Back Squat/competition bench press
