Daily Mindset

“One of the sincerest forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.” – Brian McGill

Everyone hears things. Not everyone listens.

Just hearing the words of another is to scratch the surface. It’s often here where one can turn into their own mind, formulating a response. The listening has stopped at this point. The focus is elsewhere now.

What if we changed those efforts around.

Where instead of thinking of what to say next, we seek to see further than the words. In full commitment to appreciating their perspective.

Listen not with the intention to respond, but with the intention to understand.

1 Round

5 Hang Power Cleans

Focus on what happens above the knees:


Try lowering the bar to just above the knees, then immediately changing direction. This quick change of direction will allow for a more powerful hang power clean.


Once the bar is above the knees is when athletes can aggressively push the hips forward to lock the weight out. Controlled below the knees, then fast hips forward once the bar is above the knees.


Squeeze the quads, glutes, and abs so the knees rise as you push the floor away. Focus on breathing to find the rhythm. Push the air out as you push away from the floor.
