Post Front Squat Loads and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the Front Squat, take 20-25 minutes to warm up and set a 1RM for the day.  You should work up to the heaviest weight that you know you can get, which is probably more like 98% of your true 1RM.  It is not necessary to work to failure.  It’s ok to leave something in the tank for next time. Don’t forget to put your PRs up on the PR BOARD!

For the conditioning workout, sub parallette or cone jumps for Double Unders.  If you’re still struggling with these, take some time to watch the video below!  Power Snatches start on the ground and are received above parallel.  

ENDURANCE WORKOUT tonight at 6pm!  Bring a stopwatch!

Double Unders!

    245# Front Squat - 5# improvement/PR 3 rd + 35 DU's on the METCON. DU's were sloppy.

      Paul, we're starting to mirror each other. I PRd by FS at 245 and got the same on the metcon. My DUs were awful today. On a related note to everyone, please DON'T put knots in our jump rope cables! Once you do, they are basically ruined.

    Dave -- I'm in good company then. ;-) My double unders definitely abandoned me today. Kept telling myself, "45 reps, 15 sets of 3!"

      If I had actually gotten to class on time and wasn't rushing I'm pretty sure I could've squatted more.
