On February 5th I joined TGStrength, Team Training Geek coached by @lesterhokw . First step: get me to use my legs *appropriately*. This means I need to focus on learning how to move the bar depending on the amount of weight loaded. This is some of the timing, coordination needed to weightlift. This is in contrast to loading the bar with as much weight as possible and jumping (or something?). Honestly, I didn’t know what I was doing. And I felt that. I felt confused and unsure how to use my body. Now I am coached on what to do, how to move, what my angles should be, what it should feel like, what I should use, how I should use it/them, and to get more comfortable moving well before moving heavy. I’m less confused and I’m moving better, both are really important to me.
Lester seems to know what he is doing! 💜. First video is last week, 4.5 months of training together, first one is 6 weeks training together. 🏋️♀️ It’s tough being bad at something but it is fun to see your improvement, knowing you and your coach worked really hard to get there. Posted @withrepost • @lesterhokw When you spend time honing your craft, your confidence easily builds up.
Trying to understand how to appropriate sufficient leg drive was the first agenda for @maxesandprs and subsequently, we were also able to then work into her transition under the bar well.
A common problem that many struggle with to really understand meeting the bar at the bottom. So just need to understand that what to focus and you will find the fix.
