WOD

AMRAP in 15 Minutes
15 Front Squats 135/95 lb
15 Push-ups
Workout notes: Both of these movements compliment each other in that each provides a small portion of recovery for the other but remember that squats and push-ups are NOT isolated arm and leg movements! You will need to engage your midline and press the elbows up in order to keep the bar loaded on the torso during the front squat. With the push-up, hold a tight and static hollow position in your midline and keep the back static throughout the entire range of motion. If you are scaling perform a push-up that keeps your midline stable rather than compensating by worming your way off of the floor! It will be difficult but you will be rewarded in the long run.
