Workout of the Day

Front Squat
Rest 3 min between sets.  Start light and work up to a 5 rep max

Front Squat/Toes to Bar Ladder
Do 1 FS & 1 TTB the 1st minute, 2 each the 2nd minute, 3 each the 3rd minute, and so on until you can't complete the full round within the minute.  Pick a weight about 80-90% of your 5 rep max.

Scaling: If your shoulder mobility does not permit racking the bar properly for front squats, come early, spend 15-20 minutes working on shoulder stretches & thoracic mobility, use lighter weights, and make sure you don't blow off the Rest/Recovery/Skill days in the future.  If you can't do Toes to Bar, do Knees to Elbow, if you can't do those, just give your best effort at them.

Reminder: Starting Monday, afternoon class times are 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 & 7:30 pm
