Spend 2 minutes in Z1
Then, 3 rounds
15 sumo squats
10 KB deadlifts
5e spiderman stretches w/rotation
Squat mobility based on strength
Box squats- 5×5@70% of your 1RM back squat
Warm-up and keep to a strict minute rest between working sets.
Just so you are aware of the progression of your box squat cycle, next week we will spend our last week in our 5×5. We will then move to 8×3’s at a slightly lower box height with increasing percentages. After those 3 weeks we will retest not only our box squat but our deadlift as well. If you stick to your percentages and focus on your form during these lifts, you will be very happy with your results.
Remember with the box squat
1. Vertical shins at the bottom
2. No rocking off of the box to stand up.
:30 ME burpees
:30 ME cals AB
This is interval work at it’s finest. Stay in the moment and really focus on each :30 at a time. Understand that each interval is part of the bigger picture and pace it a little bit faster than you would a 5 minute workout. Normal pace in such a workout is going to be full throttle, now add in rest between each movement and you should have the pedal to the metal from the very beginning.
Score will be total reps.
