The goal is to prep the muscle tissue as well as get blood flowing to the shoulders.

1. Lacrosse Ball in the posterior shoulder.

-Take a lacrosse ball and place it on the muscle that is covering your shoulder blade then lean against a wall. Now, move to ball in small circles, while moving you arm in and out as well as up and down for about a minutes on each side.

2. Lacrosse Ball on rear delt.

-Place the ball on the rear delt and massage in small circles for about 30 seconds on each side.

3. Lacrosse Ball on medial head of delt.

-Place the ball on the rear delt and massage in small circles for about 30 seconds on each side.

4. Lacross Ball on anterior head of your delt.

-Place the ball on the rear delt and massage in small circles for about 30 seconds on each side.

5. Banded stretches:

-Face Pull

-Frontal Pull Aparts

-Lateral Raises

Also:

-Foam roll the same thoracic spine area as last week. with like a crunching motion at each vertebrae.

-Cup your ears and touch you elbows together, for 20 or so reps. (this will help with external rotation)

-while keeping to wrists flexed up. start with you arms down. do small circles while moving your arms over head and back down for about 10-15 reps.

-Serratous Anterior Push Ups. start on hands and knees wkeeping your natural lumbar curve, now drop your chest by loosening your shoulder, last, push through, rounding your upper back and really tightening your core.

-Sitting against a wall with you butt,lumbar spine, shoulder and all touching the wall. Start with your humorous horizontal and your forearm vertical at a 90 degree angle. Try to keep you whole arm against the wall while you drive your hands overhead. Exhale on the way up and inhale on the way down.

Shoulder to Overhead work (Step by Step Shoulder Press) (No Measure)

Work on Shoulder to Overhead lifts:

-Shoulder Press

-Push Press

-Push Jerk

-Split Jerk

1. Shoulder-width grip

The wider your grip is on the bar, the weaker you will be and the less weight you will be able to lift. Aim for a grip as close to shoulder-width apart as comfortable and keep your elbows in front of your wrists to keep you in the strongest mechanical position possible for the lift. With a shoulder press we can not rely on our legs to help get the bar overhead so we don’t need to worry about the bar sitting on our shoulders yet.

2. Mobile wrists are key

For the strongest press possible you need to have mobile wrists so that they can extend back towards your body. The better the starting position of your wrists, the more able you are to initiate the move with a strong push. Better mobility will also allow your elbows to flare out slightly towards the sides as you press upwards.

3. Squeeze your shoulder blades

At the start of each rep focus on squeezing your shoulder blades together, then focus on using your shoulders to initiate the lift and get the bar moving.

4. Adjust your head position

The bar starts across your upper chest below your chin, so your head must move backwards (Ugly Selfie) slightly as you push the bar up in the straightest line possible to avoid hitting your chin and nose.

5. Keep your chest up vertical

You need to keep your chest vertical during each rep to maintain a strong and stable upper back, which in turn allows better and smoother movement patterns of all the muscles and joints involved in the lift – especially the shoulders, which are some of the most easily damaged joints, ligaments, and muscle in the body.

6. The rep is completed when the your knees, hips, and elbows are locked out, with the barbell being inline with your ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders (Your ears in a neutral head position)

Shoulder to Overhead work (Step by Step Push Press) (No Measure)

1. You are able to use your legs to get a more forceful vertical drive into the barbell.

3. Dip:

4b. Adjust your head position:

The bar starts across your upper chest and shoulder, below your chin, so your head must move backwards (Ugly Selfie) slightly as you push the bar up in the straightest line possible to avoid hitting your chin and nose.

5. Keep your chest up vertical:

4a. Dip & Push:

Focus on using the “Drive” to initiate the lift and get the bar moving, then QUICKLY dip back under the bar into a split stance while extending your shoulders upward and locking your elbows out.

Split stance:

The split stance is where you open your feet up to more of a lunge position.

1.We do not want our front knee going past the toe.

2. We want our back leg to stay pretty straight (soft knee), while landing on your toes and the front of the ball of you foot.

4b. Adjust your head position:

The bar starts across your upper chest and shoulder, below your chin, so your head must move backwards (Ugly Selfie) slightly as you push the bar up in the straightest line possible to avoid hitting your chin and nose.

6. Lastly you will bring your front foot back (a few inches), then your back foot forward to get back into your “Driving stance.

7. The rep is completed when the your knees, hips, and elbows are locked out, with the barbell being inline with your ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders (Your ears in a neutral head position)

JORDAN HOWARD

COACH/ADMINISTRATOR

I was born and raised here in Lafayette, where started CrossFit a little over three years ago. I participated in athletics throughout high school, and have continued to compete while in college pursuing a career as a Nurse Practitioner. CrossFit has changed my life. It has given me a competitive edge, provided me with another platform to test my fitness, increased my quality of life, and connected me with my second family here at P6 CrossFit. With the help and encouragement of our members and coaching staff, I have had the pleasure of becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Through coaching, my goal is to impact and improve the quality of life of the athletes I meet, whether they are beginners, or elite.

T.J. WILLIAMS

COACH

My name is T.J. Williams and am a husband and father. I am currently the Senior Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Farm Golf Club
where I have been working for the past 7 years. started CrossFit because I was getting bored with the same bland routine of a traditional gym. I
had a friend that had just started coaching and he talked me into trying it. I was hooked from the word go. I always enjoyed competing growing up as I played almost every ball sport you could. CrossFit brought back that competitive drive I was missing. After several years of doing CrossFit, I began wanting to help people on their CrossFit journey so I obtained my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. I enjoy helping people achieve things they never thought they would be able to accomplish. Seeing people conquer fears and experiencing that “light bulb coming on moment” is rewarding to me. One piece of advice I would give to anyone whether they are new to CrossFit or have been doing it for years would be to enjoy the CHASE of mastering the movements.

ROBERT PLANK

CEO/HEAD COACH

This is the short version: One September morning, the 9-11 tragedies happened. My best friend and decided that it was our duty to do our part to protect the freedoms that we barely knew anything about. The last time was blown up while deployed to Iraq, I was hit in the head with a piece of shrapnel.

I lost all memory from before that point, and I still have no visual memory to this day. I was discharged from the military and had to figure out how to move forward. I have now been out of the military since 2007 and have found ways to work around these things, to where most people meet, don’t even notice anything is different. Because of the traumatic brain injury suffered, have had an MAI on my brain, yearly since the incident. In June of 201S I received a call from a VA neuro surgeon telling me that my scar tissue had grown and that he believed it was a brain tumor. He requested that I come in immediately to have it removed. I honestly believed it was still just scar tissue and they were overreacting. Man was I wrong. After multiple types of MAI’s proving that it was a tumor, I went in to have it surgically removed. Turns out, it is an incurable type of brain cancer that is supposed to come back (but more on that later). So went through months of Chemo and daily radiation treatments. During that time I felt pretty terrible, so I ate A LOT. Not only did I eat a lot, but I ate a lot of pure junk food which lead to me weighting over 2SOlbs, knew it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself, and that I needed to get up, get back in shape. feel like everything learned about diet, fitness, and lifestyle will not only delay the return of the cancer, but I honestly don’t think it’s coming back at all (I’m an optimist though). had always (even before the military) wanted to get into buying houses, fixing them up, and selling/renting them. I figured there no time life the present, and pulled the trigger on that dream. The process of taking something that needs work, and making it the best it can be, is a passion of mine that now translates directly into being the Owner of PS CrossFit. know it sounds cheesy, but once you get told that you have cancer, everything in life suddenly has more purpose and you realize that tomorrow isn’t promised. You realize that you have a limited amount of time to fulfill your potential and do what makes you happy. Helping others live better lives is what makes me happy. P6 CrossFit has been my opportunity to help more people in a shorter amount of time than anything I have ever done. I am able to help others reach and exceed their goals on a daily basis. get to see people come into the gym intimidated, with low self-esteem, and watch them transform into extremely confident and proud individuals.
