Not a whole lot to say that isn’t said by the blog post title today – of course, it involved front squats, but it’s the 4 subsequent exercises summed up by the “Fun” that made Thursday’s class that much more…well, fun.
Weights for the squats were assigned based on people’s max front squats:
if your max was under 75, use 45lbs for the workout;
if your max was between 75 and 105, use 65lbs;
if your max was between 105 and 135, use 95lbs;
if your max was between 135 and 185, use 135lbs;
if your max was between 1185 and 225, use 155lbs; and,
if your max was over 225, use 185lbs.
Everyone got a few minutes to warm-up to their front squat weight before the fun got started. Once the gun sounded, each athlete cleaned the bar off the ground and performed one set of as many reps of front squats as they could, before heading out the door on the first of two block runs (800m).
Back in the door, it was 50 burpees for time, followed by the second block run, and then a final 25 slam balls before calling time.
It’s been a while since we had a met-con only class, so thought we’d serve up something a little something different before the weekend. Good luck to everyone competing in Saturday’s Total Recall. We’ll see you all Sunday.
