When Jumping Suddenly Became Hard


When Jumping Suddenly Became Hard

We continue our strength cycle with our final piece of the puzzle – the back squat. Working at 70% should be heavy enough to do 5 but not heavy enough to struggle. Keep your chest up as you drive up out of your squat. Push through your heels and activate your glutes.

The metcon compliments our strength with front squats and push presses – better known as thrusters. Keep your form near perfect driving your elbows high and accelerating the bar overhead. Then, grab your rope and start jumping.
