Bent-Over Rows and Variations for Upper Posterior Chain Development
Video by Melissa Hurley

Pulling movements are important to incorporate into your fitness routine for enhanced posture, strength gains and to balance out your posterior and anterior chains.

Try these different variations of bent-over rows for your specific needs whether they be loading the hamstrings while engaging the lats; focusing on the mid-back and scaps; or to balance out your left and right sides. No matter which you choose, focus on using your lats and scaps instead of your upper traps which tend to take over if we let them.

Snatch Balance Points of Performance
Written by Gaje McDaniel

The main purpose of this drill is to practice our overhead position after transitioning from the turnover to the full squat. Many times athletes struggle with a strong lockout while transitioning to a full overhead squat, which in turn causes lack of weight being supported. If you’ve seen an athlete of Olympic power, performing any snatch work, their turnover and bar support overhead is fast and very strong.

Practicing the snatch balance can help you in many ways. By performing well with heavier weights can benefit our overall overhead strength (but may not always allow for speed).
