Pink to make the girls wink 😉

This is why I love Coach’s Eye. If you are a serious coach or athlete and are looking for a tool to help your lifting and movement, I cannot express how valuable this $2 app is.

Last week I was having trouble getting Jason to hit the hang position (in the snatch) with good thoracic extension and scapular retraction. I told him what to do, but that didn’t quite work. Next I showed him what I was looking for by letting him watch me with PVC. But that still didn’t quite hit home. So on his next attempt, I took a quick video of what he looked like in the hang position (top photo, 185#). Then I put him in the position I wanted him in with PVC (bottom photo).

When I showed him the side-by-side, something clicked, and on his next attempt he executed his snatch with great back extension, a tight upper back and hit the lift quite easily.

Some people are auditory learners, some are more visual, while others are more tactile. It is your job as a coach to know how to teach and cue in each of these ways and get your athletes to move the way they are supposed to. If you don’t have Coach’s Eye, you need to get it. Like now.

It’s one more tool to put in your belt that can help both you and your athletes raise the bar to the next level. And if your athletes travel or do any kind of training on their own, it’s a downright necessity.

I know I did not give much of a recap of the Sweat Rx Outlaw Pro Invitational… What can I say? Toronto is a beautiful city with really nice Canucks – they treated us extremely well and competition was the coolest thing at the CanFitPro (Canadian Fitness Professionals) Convention. The field of professional exercisers was littered with Games and Regionals athletes – and Ginger came home with Silver around her neck and $1500 in her pocket. I honestly cannot tell you how proud I am of her for pulling back from 6th place to 2nd over the span of one and one half days and 4 workouts. Simply amazing to witness. Proud of you.

Week 7 Training: 13.08.20


A. 15 minutes to establish a 2-RM Hang Snatch, from just above the knee


B1. 3×3: Snatch 1st Pull – Heavy with perfect positioning and a 3-count hold just above the knee

B2. 3×3: Snatch Grip Push Press – Heavy with a 3-count lockout overhead

B3. 3×1: Triple Broad Jump – AFarAP

Notes: Start a new movement every 90 seconds. On the TBJ: Make all of your jumps “consecutive” – in other words, do not pause and reload for each broad jump. Hit the ground and explode directly into the next jump.


C. With a 3-minute clock:
-Row 500m AFAP
-AMRAP Burpee to Plate in remaining time

Rest 6 Minutes

With a 3-minute clock:
-Row 500m AFAP
-AMRAP Burpee to Plate in remaining time

Notes: Both efforts should be performed at 100%. Record both 500m row splits and number of burpees for each round.
