Max Out Your Back Squat


Sometimes I wonder whether the cost efficiency of making something on my own is worth it haha! 60% of the time, it’s worth it every time!  Above is a cool new sandbag that should be a nice addition.  It’s exactly 60#’s so it’ll work well for those that struggle with the 100#.  I had to order more canvas since I needed to first test this out to make sure we could actually make them, so some more loading options in the future.   The ones below are jumprope handles……. I’m skeptical about these.  I wanted to try and make a Heavy Rope for weighted DU’s, buuuuut the struggle is real.  I’ll put my design to the test tomorrow.  Pro Tip:  Always measure!  Before anything.  Don’t eyeball things and tell yourself “that should work.”  Ok… that was me.  I hate measuring and only do so when I need to.   60% of the time… It works everytime!  I bought wire and cut it after I drilled the holes to feed it through the wooden handles.  It’s sized to Jax or Londyn…. and probably no one else.  3 hours of work… and the project continues!! Yaaaay!

Back Squat
Tomorrow we are Establishing our 1 Rep Max! This will be used for future percentages for loading and specific stimulus. It’s been a while since we hit this, so going forward it is best, and ideal, to have a CURRENT 1RM to go off of. As seasons change, so do we. The previous numbers we’ve used from past “seasons,” and the further we are from them, the less validity they provide for our needs and use in the season we are in now. We change and grow, and sometimes as life throws us curve balls, we have to adapt and adjust… intentionally and unintentionally. Regardless of our up and down ascend, or descend, climb on our ladders in life, validity and reliability can be significant and essential allies in our productivity and truths that make the process more effective and enjoyable. Come in ready to throw some weight around! Be tough like a bear, strong like a bull, and fight like a mountain lion!

For Time:
2 Rounds
100 Double Unders
25 Deadlifts @225/155
25 Handstand Push-Ups
