The Position

We often talk about spinal positioning.  We aim to get all of our athletes to understand how to maintain a rigid torso while performing functional movements.  This neutral spine position is often confusing for beginning athletes. To keep it simple Kelly Starrett and Carl Paoli have coined the phrase "The Position".  The idea is that no matter the movement, your spine should remain stable.  Snatching is no different that a muscle up, and running is no different that rowing.
