He doesn’t say a whole lot when he is here but his consistency does not go unnoticed. Adam Grodin is one of Point Loma’s most consistent members. Like clockwork, every morning at about 6:58, Adam walks through the front door of Point Loma ready for anything the 7am class can throw at him. It didn’t always used to be this way. All of last year, we could count on Adam to show up at 7:05 for for that 7 am class but he made it a 2018 goal to come to class on time and so far, he’s been crushing that goal! Adam is an extremely hard worker and he is doing everything he can to get better both in and outside of class. You can often find him sticking around after his workout to practice his double-unders or add in some core work. He’s been a great addition to the Point Loma community from the day he walked into his first class. Congrats on being April’s Member of the Month, Adam!

Close Grip Overhead Squats – A Great Way to Loosen the Shoulders & T-Spine!

Close Grip overhead Squats at light to moderate weight are fantastic for improving shoulder and T-Spine mobility. The bar should be loaded to a weight that the athlete can completely control and is just enough weight to help keep the hands back far enough behind the head to allow them to stretch as they squat.

A great time to do these is before any barbell overhead movement like a snatch, overhead squat or a jerk.
