You may have noticed that we have some sort of variation of squatting in our program almost every week and for good reason. One of the adaptations we are looking for out of you folks is building strength.

I can’t say it any better than Mark Rippetoe so here’s a quote from the man himself:

“There is simply no other exercise, and certainly no machine, that provides the level of central nervous activity, improved balance and coordination, skeletal loading and bone density enhancement, muscular stimulation and growth, connective tissue stress and strength, psychological demand and toughness, and overall systemic conditioning than the correctly performed full squat.”

I agree.gym-tofino-fitness-Rowing3

Strength: Back Squat

You are going to build to a medium heavy 5 for the day. These are not sets across.

Conditioning: In teams of two, 16 Min AMRAP of:

15 Pullups or Ring rows

10 Burpee box jumps

Only one partner will be working at anyone time.
