The Maddox Method program has some deadlifting today!
When performing high repetition Olympic lifting workouts, incorporating touch-and-go (TNG) repetitions/barbell cycling can be helpful in getting more work done in a shorter amount of time. TNG reps can be performed by simply “gripping and ripping” the barbell but this will usually lead to inefficiency, and fatigue will usually set in fairly quickly. There is an art to barbell cycling aka TNG and, as with most skills, it takes practice and repetition to become efficient at it. Below are some tips to keep in mind when performing TNG reps.
Different barbell movements require different grips. There are Powerlifts, Olympic lifts, and traditional Globo gym lifts. Each of these lifts has their purpose and can be utilized to have a well-balanced fitness program. It is important that we utilize the proper grip for the lift that we are performing. This will help build strength and improve efficiency in our lifts. Below are a few examples of different grips and which lifts and exercises they can be utilized for.
Pistol Squat Progressions Demonstration:
These drills consist of twists and bends to target the internal and external obliques. The obliques are part of the core and they work to stabilize your body any time that you are bending or twisting. These muscles run down the side of your torso and can be considered pillars that stabilize your torso. Along with training your obliques, you are also working your transverse abdominal muscles, when you perform this exercise.
