E for Effort
Effort: A vigorous or determined attempt; the result of an attempt.
During a recent session with my personal trainer, I was challenged to increase the number of reps for the power clean lift with squat. Two weeks prior, I had worked up to one rep at 90 pounds. The goal was to double the rep count. For those who don't do any strength training, it is important to note that warm-up and form are critical. We didn't start at 90 pounds; we started at 65 and increased the weight each cycle. We alternated this move with work on the triceps. That allowed the muscles needed for the power lift to recover. With each addition of weight, the form became more critical. Proper alignment of feet, hips, back, chest and hands is necessary to perform the lift correctly and without injury. When the proper components are in place.....warm up, alignment, form, effort......the goal was not only achieved but passed! The "vigourous or determined attempt" resulted in three reps at 90 pounds! What effort can you activate today and make a determined attempt that will produce results? Go for it! (The picture captures my activated effort after lifting the bar, doing a squat and on the way to standing up!)
