Pistol This!

by Coach Cassie
Today we're doing pistol (one-legged squat) skillwork. Here are some tests to gauge what might be holding you back from executing pistols properly - having the proper balance, strength and hip & ankle mobility all factor into pistols.
**If your answer is YES to a question below, you're good to go! The questions that are answered NO determine which type of pistol progression you should practice.**
Balance: Can you jump up and down on one foot and stick the landing without falling? From a standing position, can you perform a lunge with your knee kissing the ground lightly AND stand back up without falling?
From a lunge on ground position, with your back ankle extended (shoelaces of back foot touching the ground) can you stand back up without falling?
If balance is an issue, here's your pistol progression: Lunge on the ground with ankle extended, do lunge step-ups on a box (step behind box) or Lunge Step-ups on a box (step to side of box, swinging leg out).
Strength: In your lunge position on the ground, can you lift your back foot off the ground and stand up? Can you back squat or front squat your body weight?
If strength is an issue, here's your pistol progression: Candlestick roll to pistol (uses momentum of your body to assist with the pistol) or lunge on the ground with ankle lifted off ground and stand up.
Mobility: Can you do a proper air squat? Chest up straight? Hip crease below parallel? Heels secure on the floor? AND knees pressed out over pinky toe?
If mobility is an issue, here's your pistol progression: Hold a weight plate out in front of you with straight arms while performing the pistol. This helps activate and engage the posterior chain to allow the athlete to properly sit back into the squat rather than lurch forward.

TUES 9.3.13 Farewell Cheryl

By | WOD | No Comments

Don't forget we're trying out an 8a class on Tuesdays & Fridays through the 15th.


Goodbye Cheryl & Kalen!

We've been so lucky to have 3-time Olympian Cheryl Haworth & her fiance Kalen as a part of the CFM community for the past four months. Kalen just got a promotion at SCAD (you go girl!), but the new gig is based in Savannah, so they'll be moving back south later this week.
Join Cheryl today at the 5pm class as she coaches great clean & jerk form. She'll also be back regularly for Olympic Lifting workshops. It's been a pleasure getting to know you both and learning from you, Cheryl! Thanks for sharing your knowledge & expertise. Best wishes in Savannah!
