Written by World War I veteran Erich Maria Remarque in 1928, “All Quiet on the Western Front” is hailed by some as the best war novel ever written, and is one of Coach Billy’s top 3 favorite books of all time.
Also, we’re front squatting today ;)
Front Squats (225/155 lb.)
60-ft. Handstand Walk
Front Squats (185/125 lb.)
50-ft. Handstand Walk
10 Floor Around-the-Worlds
Much like yesterday, today’s workout is also a potent couplet, but the stimulus today tests moderately loaded barbell capacity with some skill work to break up the tension.
The Front Squats will tax your breathing, front rack, midline, legs, and mental grit. The Handstand Walking will be a bit of an unloaded reprieve, but will challenge your gymnastics strength, coordination, balance, and overall proprioceptive abilities under duress.
For the sake of the workout, we are performing the Front Squats off of the ground, so you will have to Clean the bar. The Front Squat should be pretty darn challenging—something that will make you break up your sets of 21 and 15 into 2 sets, and the last set of 9 should be CHALLENGING to do unbroken. You’ll get a good amount of rest for your legs during the Handstand Walking, so go aggro with the weight on your front squats.
And read that book.
