We've got a fun new movement for stamina day!! For this one, I need you all to make sure you are focusing on keeping your core tight and maintaining a neutral spine. Remember...A NEUTRAL SPINE IS NOT A STRAIGHT LINE! We all have a natural curve in the lower back, in which the spine arches forward (lordosis). Straightening the spine from this natural curve is NOT neutral, nor is it particularly helpful for much of anything...especially weightlifting! This arch of the lower back creates the most rigid lever arm possible to transmit the force generated by the legs and hips to the barbell. Rounding of the back can reduce the force to the bar by as much as 15%!!! So....DON'T DO IT! Your coaches will be watching...
