Back Squat (10RM)
Warmup Sets 10-8-5 Starting light and adding to the bar each set before reaching your working weightWe are using the previous week's progressions to work up to a new 10 rep max back squat. You should choose a weight that is a given for the first 5 reps, challenging for reps 6-8, and then dig deep for the final 2. Rest as needed at the top of each rep and focus on speed out of the bottom of each rep. BACK SQUAT Focus on keeping a good bracing position and your entire shoe flat on the floor. We want to keep four points of contact between the floor and our feet. Inside and outside ball of our foot. Heel down Big toe pressed into the floor. Keep our eyes slightly above the horizon to keep a mature squat position.
