1RM Back Squat



Today’s primary focus is the back squat. If you are a person that takes a while to warm-up, please come to the gym early and do what you need to do to prep yourself for this lift.

Take a look at the skills before class today and have a plan for what type of pulling movement you’d like to practice. Pick a drill/progression and have the setup ready to go.
