What movement were you really bad at and how did you improve?
Deadlifts & Ring Muscle-ups.
I improved my deadlifts through seminars that taught me how to build a stronger back. Then I attended seminars that taught me proper mechanics on simple hinge movement patterns that I was doing wrong, and how to brace my internal torque chain.
I trained my hammies & glutes to become stronger and have the back do less work. I improved my Ring Muscle-ups by attending seminars and workshops that taught me the proper mechanics.
I then would film myself and others and would compare what was different about my movement than theirs. Then I would practice / train to increase capacity through threshold training, emoms, and strengthening all of the muscles involved in the movement.
How would you recommend to an athlete that hasn't PR'd in a while to break through the plateau?
Self Evaluate WHY - what am I doing, and what am I not doing that has me at a plateau.
A 360 Evaluation should include an analysis of the following:
- Movement Quality
- Mobility - range of motion
- Sleep quality
- External Stress
Everyone wants to know what they should do differently to improve their lift. But sometimes you need to STOP doing something that is affecting your mechanics.
