There are some new and cool things coming up in our programming cycle.
One of the main focuses for our current cycle is upper body pulling strength. We have been using ring rows, pull ups and barbell rows so far. All classic training tools. Recently we purchased a few new items for the gym.
As of today we now have four 60' ropes. We will be adding in seated sled pulls to the programming to allow for increased variance and also increased time under tension when it comes to pulling stamina.
When doing seated sled pulls with the rope ensure you are in a straddle position, you have a slight lean forward and you are pulling your hands into your chest each. Long and steady pulls over short and choppy ones. Try to keep tension on the rope the entire time and avoid leaning back unless told to by a coach.
