Skill

Front Squat
3-3-3-3-3

Today we’re working up to a strong effort 3 rep front squat.  With the front squat we want to focus on keeping the elbows up and chest as upright as possible.  As with any kind of squatting you’ll want to practice keeping your knees out and tracking over your feet. Remember to release the grip on the bar a bit in the front squat and load the bar onto your torso which should help you keep your elbows and chest up. If you have a mobility problem holding you back from keeping your elbows up you can always try crossing your arms across the bar or modifying that in some way.

WOD

AMRAP in 8 Minutes
20 Air Squats
40 Double Unders

Workout Notes: Today’s workout is a simple couplet.  Make sure to hit full depth on all of your squats as well as standing tall to complete each rep.  Don’t sacrifice good clean reps for speed on this movement. The double under can be a difficult movement for people, especially under fatigue and with tired legs.  If 40 is a big number for you, choose to cut the number down to a more manageable set rather than reverting to singles.  Even 5 double unders per round will be more beneficial than 80 singles.  If you have never done a double under before you can perform 80 singles with a double under attempt every 10 reps. Move fast and focus on quick transitions!
