Background for Expertise

Pushing weight is fun! Grinding past that nearly stopped point of a heavy deadlift. Stopping cold a big kettlebell at the top of a snatch. Feeling the bar “snap” as you catch it at the bottom of a classic rock bottom clean. Locking tight for all you’ve got at the top of a barbell jerk […]
