Last week we saw this same format with shoulder-to-overhead movements, and this time around we'll focus on the three main barbell squat variations.  After a big dose of aerobic conditioning work on Monday this will be a nice compliment to help start our week of training.

Happy squatting!

WOD FOR 08-21-18:

Overhead Squat:



Front Squat:



Back Squat:



If performing this workout as Rx (Black Level) the goal is to increase the weight every set, for a total of twelve consecutive climbing work sets (i.e. the bar only goes up in weight). If that is unreasonable (be honest with yourself!) decrease the weight when starting the next movement, then climb back up again to a heavy single in four sets.

An example of performing this workout as Rx is as follows: 

Overhead Squat 4x95, 3x115, 2x135, 1x155 directly into...
Front Squat 4x165, 3x185, 2x205, 1x225 directly into...
Back Squat 4x235, 3x255, 2x275, 1x295
