Check out the toe socks.

Skill Practice Warm Up:  Goat practice.

Workout:  Front Box Squat

7 x 1 (7 sets of 1 rep “across,” using the same weight each set)

This is the first day of our new strength cycle. Be aware these will be (and should be) much less weight than a regular front squat. The 7 reps should be fairly “easy.” Start around 50 – 60% of your 1 rep max Front Squat (We did this last Monday, check your BTWB HERE.) The goal should be to add 5 – 10 lbs per week.

Super Set With: 5 ‘Perfect’ Push Ups in between each set of Front Box Squats (Replace Knee Push Ups with a Ring Push Up at an angle).
