Back Squat (Build Steadily to a 7-Rep Back Squat)


Warming Sets:

Set #1 – 7 Reps @ 35% of 1RM

Set #2 – 5 Reps @ 45% of 1RM

Set #3 – 3 Reps @ 55% of 1RM

Set #4 – 2 Reps @ 65% of 1RM

Set #5 – 2 Reps @ 70% of 1RM

Set #6 – 1 Rep @ 75% of 1RM

Continue to climb with singles until we reach our target attempt for the day. Percentage goals will naturally vary significantly between athletes, with a good place to aim being between 84-90%. Post heaviest completed set of 7 to wodify.

Front rack reverse lunge (2 Sets of 20 Reps @ 40% of 1RM Front Squat)


All repetitions taken from the rack. Each step counts as a repetitions, resulting in each leg lunging for a total of 10 repetitions.
Reverting back to our opening weight on this movement in Week 5, where we completed this load for a set of 12 repetitions. Today, we go for 2 sets, of 20.

**Rest 3:00 between sets.

Conditioning

If we do not have access to a bike today, let’s complete 20/14 calories on the rower.
