Back Squats (115/75 lb.)
Lateral Barbell Jumps (double reps)
Okay, you guys went heavy today, so we’ll go a little lighter and do some fun gymnastic-y things today.
The HSPU will tax the press, the Back Squats your core and lower body, and the Lateral Barbell Jumps immediately after taxing those fast-twitch muscle fibers. This mixed-modality workout will work gymnastic technique, barbell muscle stamina, and ballistic speed! Nothing should be very heavy or high in volume, so we’re looking for a fast effort today.
For the Back Squats, the bar is taken off of the floor—more incentive to perform the reps unbroken! For the Lateral Barbell Jumps, it is double the number of reps—42-30-18.
Shoot to hit your Back Squats unbroken. It should be something that you can rep out pretty easily in the beginning, but perhaps about halfway through each set you should feel a bit of a burn. Shoot for finishing in AROUND 10 minutes or so. Ish.
