At the start of BBC C. Joe stressed the importance of the accessory movements. If you want to be able to do strict pull ups, push ups, dips, etc you need to do them each week. Simply working on these when they are programmed is not nearly as effective. Every single time I see Bianca at the box she is working on push ups. She has worked her way through every progression and has stayed incredibly determined. Not long ago she was doing them with a green band around her arms. As of today she has worked her way down to a purple band. Congrats B! You'll be knocking out RX push ups very soon!
