Easy Enough

Strength: Front Squat – establish new 1RM

Note: This is the conclusion of our front squat strength cycle.  Use today to establish a new 1RM.  Be sure to perform the appropriate amount of warm-up sets.  Performing too few sets prior to a new 1RM attempt can be just as bad as performing too many.  Check with your coach on the appropriate warm-up scheme. 

Rest, then:

Easy Enough (optional)

AMRAP 3 Minutes:

  • Double Unders (attempts count)

Rest 2 minutes:

AMRAP 8 Minutes:

  • 10 KB Swings (52/35)
  • 10 Push Ups
  • 10 Burpees

Note: The WOD is optional.  Your focus should be the front squats.  Your score is how many reps you got in the second WOD + the number of DUs (including attempts)
