Another #CoachBuzz #GreenRibbon sighting by @erickadehitta in Angono, Rizal Philippines.
Check this story though... coach @jerker_pep reached out to @coach.toph and @njvezina about an urgent request for replacement weightlifting shoes for Ericka! Her old shoes finally gave out on her and in fact they were big on her. We happened to have the perfect size sitting in our gym that was rarely used so Coach Toph intercepted @njvezina at LAX during her layover for a drop off of the much needed shoes! This is what the worldwide community is all about!! Find ways... and perfect timing is always a bonus! Now Ericka is getting acclimated to the new shoes prepping for her national meet in the next few weeks.
Long Beach Weightlifting has been donating shoes and other weightlifting gear for over 3 years now... if anyone has old shoes or gear they would like to donate, please come by and we'll add it to our next shipment!
113 off the blocks... about 3 weeks away... #Repost @action_jackson_5 (@get_repost)

🔊 Sound on! Especially for those interested in remote coaching vs just following an online program template. Here's Sharon @sharon0a.t 4 weeks out from AO finals looking to fix her no feet power clean and jerk. Swipe for the original video. Can you see what needs Improvement?
To achieve a better start position (yellowangle) while keeping her shoulders over the bar, she can lower her hips while maintaining forward shoulder position through ankle flexion. She should also remove the slack from her shoulders from the first pull, which will allow her to push more force from the ground. She's opening her back angle before the bar passes your knees. Looks like she'll need to do more clean deadlifts and similar drills .
Addressed outside of this video, Sharon is also working on internally rotating her arms, but we see that her shoulders are facing downwards. This suggests that her scaps need more activation, which will help her finish her final pull.
Sharon has been a remote athlete for most of her weightlifting career. We work together to make a program that will fit her busy schedule while training for higher-level competitions. If you're interested in remote coaching, feel free to message this account or @coach.toph for more info. .
