It's #MobilityMonday from @romwod! Single Leg Seated Forward Fold: This is the A-symmetrical version of basic seated forward fold with one leg bent and dropped open to the side of the body. Allow the torso to fold forward with a rounded back to focus on the single leg hamstring and low back target groups. Elevating your butt off the ground and or resting on blankets can help modify the pose and make it easier to rest passively in position.

Check out the latest episode of the USA Weightlifting Podcast presented by @romwod (find the podcast through our bio link) . This is number 5 on the countdown of 10 tips to help improve your Olympic lifts. We’ll be talking you through some guidelines to check the grip you’re using for your clean and jerk, and recommendations to help you solidify your already intended grip (do your hands perhaps slide in and/or fingers pop out from under the bar when you receive a clean?), or any change in grip (might you need to widen your grip to help find a better contact point or for a more solid surface to support and throw from for the jerk?) . Tune in to learn more about the importance of proper bar contact, what typically happens if your hands are too narrow, common front rack position mobility limiters, and how to best transition between the clean and the jerk. #usawthepodcast #easilyappliedtips #cleangrip #jerkgrip @romwod

Happy #mobilitymonday from @romwod Seated Forward Fold: From a seated position lean the torso and body forward towards the legs. Feel free to let your spine round more to get an increase in the low back target area. Elevate your butt off the ground if you have a hard time leaning forward and use blankets to rest your torso on as you lean forward to help create a passive approach. This is a hamstring and low back posture.
