Front squat mobility

Front squats – one lift every 2:00
2×3, 2×2, and then 4×1; all building towards a heavy single
Really enjoying this rep scheme lately. It has proved to allow for plenty of volume for those who just want to continue to get stronger but also give those who want to work up towards a really heavy single a chance to warm up as they build.

The last couple of weeks I have used this rep scheme for both. When we used it to power clean, I worked up to a new 1RM. Using the 3’s and 2’s as a chance to really get warm and dial in my form. Starting relatively light and making much bigger jumps than I would in a regular lifting session. But last week, when we used this rep scheme in the back squat, I knew that there was no way I was PRing, so I started at a much heavier weight and made much smaller jumps in an attempt to achieve some lifting volume.

Use this session as you see fit based on how you feel and what you want to achieve.

“Leg day for DT”
3 min AMRAP
1 round of squatting “DT”
ME over the bar burpees with time remaining
Rest 1:00, x3
So 1 round of squatting “DT” is
12 hang power cleans (155/105#)(135/95#)
9 front squats
6 S2OH
If you haven’t read the blog post on scaling, you might want to look it over before you come into class today because the weight on the bar today is going to be the most important piece to approaching this WOD. If it’s too heavy, you will have to break up “DT” too much and won’t get many burpees in, especially as fatigue starts to set in during the later rounds. If you go too light, “DT” will simply be an annoying buy-in and it will just feel like you did 9 minutes of burpees.
