Box Brief –
Strength Day! Front Squat to be specific. This will set everyone up nicely for the Fitness Testing Workout ‘Pain Optional’ at the end of the month. It will give you a good idea where you are at with your submaximal loads and you should be able to have a better idea of what you are capable of for a workout with heavy Front Squats.
The intention is to lift heavy across all 5 sets of 3. What we want to avoid today, is people “working” up to a heavy 3 rep max. Today is about volume, and lifting just below your max loads for multiple reps is going to give you more volume at a heavy load than working up to 1 heavy set. That is still a good method and one we use often, but not today. Go heavy!
