A big, explosive movement like a power clean takes a lot of knowledge, which is why Ricky is here, to teach and share his wisdom! This is one of our most detailed exercise instructional videos ever, and that is thanks to Ricky’s unique pedigree and accomplishments, and his experience as a coach. Instead of struggling (and failing) to activate the muscles in your back and arms, find out how to lift with the legs and your core, more efficiently using your motion to create power. Something you will hear Ricky come back to a lot is the idea of symmetry: by lifting as one, you are growing stronger as one, without any major imbalances that can cause problems later on.
We are constantly in combat, breaking down our bodies, but most of us don’t take the time to build our bodies back up! Soon, injuries can start, and your overall level is moving in the wrong direction. In fact, it happened to Ricky Lundell himself! After years of grappling, he was faced with the same back pains that so many grapplers have, but instead of accepting it, he found the ways he could fix his body through better corrective movement in the gym. Instead of falling down that familiar path of injury, see some of the exercises and stretches that Ricky uses to warm up his body (and see why a steel bar may just be your best friend).
It’s really rare to get a strength and conditioning coach who is as capable on the mats as Ricky is, so take advantage today. When he talks about changing your body to move around the right way (instead of just how to do a move the right way), it can open up whole new worlds of BJJ for you to study and explore. With the ebook you receive with your instructional series, you can start getting into the movement around daily improvement that is growing throughout modern grappling.
