Strength

Back Squat
5-5-5-5-5

Spend some time working up to a strong effort5 rep back squat.  You shouldn’t be working up to failure but to a weight that is challenging and doesn’t compromise form.  Remember to keep your torso upright and push back on the bar through the entire range of motion. With the back squat your chest will be forward a bit depending on where you put the bar but you should maintain that angle from start to finish.

WOD

3 Rounds for time
15 Burpees
60 Double Unders

Workout notes: This couplet is an interesting pairing in that the stimulus of the two movements is similar.  The burpee is performed at a slower rate but has a big variance in rep time amongst most athletes.  If you are proficient with double unders and have good conditioning your total time will largely be determined by the rep time with the burpees.  Push the pace and challenge yourself!
