Quad Squeeze

It is so easy to let the knee soften (or just straight up re-bend) when a push press gets heavy. It's our bodies way of saying "If I just sneak under the weight a little bit, it will be so much easier." (Otherwise known as a jerk) So as the weight gets heavier we have to really concentrate on squeezing the quads and glutes as we drive out of the dip. Becca's purple pants were great for seeing if she was squeezing those legs!

The benefit of team workouts is that we will often push ourselves a bit harder than we normally would. Today Steph and Priscilla coaxed Cathy into doing her push ups on her toes versus her knees and she was rocking some SOLID full plank push ups!!
