Keep elbows high – Mon 4.10.17
Strength: Front Squat 3 x 5
Work up (multiple warm up sets) to a moderate set of 5 on the first set. Stay there for the next 2 sets. I don’t want these to be crushers, we should leave room to go up the next time we perform this. The goal is to improve you position each rep in each set. Keep elbows high, go deeper, sit back in the heels more, use the full foot, better breathing, activate glutes/hamstrings, all the stuff you should be thinking about in a squat. Weight belts are encouraged.
Conditioning: 30-20-10 reps for time of:
– 1-arm KB/DB Thrusters (Performance: 53/35#, Fitness: 44-45/25-26#, Health: as heavy as possible)
– Toes to Bar (Health: as high as possible)
*For the Thrusters, switch hands as needed
