Skill

Back Squat
10-10-10

Today we’re performing 3 sets of 10 Squats working up to a heavy set. This rep range is probably unfamiliar territory so spend some time thinking about how you would perform a large set of heavy squats. The best strategy is to take a moment to take a few slow and deep breaths at the top of every rep to allow some recovery before you start your next rep.  This will help you to avoid hitting failure. A weight that is in the 70% range would be appropriate for more experience lifters.  Start light with an an empty bar and make sure you are performing all of your reps to your full range of motion.  We do this not only to warm each joint through it’s entire range but to reinforce proper mechanics.  Maintain an upright and rigid torso through each rep.   You should NOT be hitting failure on this but just in case be sure to review how to ditch a back squat and use spotters when needed. Please respect other lifters during their sets by waiting rather than walking in front or behind them.

Workout notes

Today’s workout is a task priority couplet which should end up as a shorter duration workout.  For most athletes the workout will feel very much like a sprint. Choose a kettlebell load that allows you to perform each round in 1-2 sets. If you are attempting a heavier load than you normally swing consider performing the swings to eye level rather than going all the way overhead.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
