STRENGTH: back squat
Today, we bring back an oldie, but a goodie; the 20 Rep Back Squat Challenge. The good news is that we will follow the more individualized approach that we used throughout the summer of 2017. The bad news is that your 1 RM number is most likely a bit heavier…
You will start off the cycle at 50% of your 1 RM. Every week, for 8 weeks, you will add 5 lbs to your total and squat it 20 times (in an unbroken set). This means you need to take notes so you know where you are. In the famous words of Mike Savat, ‘What gets written down gets measured. What gets measured gets managed. What gets managed gets improved.’ We’ll talk more before we start!
WOD: 10 RFT
5 Deadlifts (315/205)*
*The RX deadlift weight has to be pre-approved! Scaled weights will be on the whiteboard.
