Here are a few tips to help w T2B in today’s WOD. with ・・・ TOES TO BAR: Is your weight distribution correct? ••• When training the toes to bar, newer athletes tend to struggle more with maintaining a consistent rhythm, versus getting their toes in contact with the bar. ••• When you find yourself struggling to connect reps, make sure you step back, and analyze your bodyweight distribution in relation to the bar. ••• In order to maintain that rhythm, you need to be pulling your legs with the core/hip flexors, and engaging the lats, as if to pull down on the bar. ••• This will pull the majority of your bodyweight to the back side of the bar (where we want it), allowing you enough time to make contact, and begin driving your heels back down, in order to swing back into your loaded arch position. ••• If you are not strong enough to pull your body to the backside of the bar, gravity will not allow you enough time to do everything you need to (i.e. tap your toes on the bar, and drive the heels back down). ••• Resulting in, a “glide-swing-toes-to-bar”. ••• ️Perfect your rhythm and movement pattern first, THEN, worry about hitting your toes to the bar. ••• 🖖🏾 ••• . . . . . .
