Front Squat

Monday, February 15, 2016

Coach Meriah

(11AM) 6 of us including Steve B, Reva, Ben, Paul, another guy and me

Warm Up

Row and hamstring activation via pulling ourselves by feet in a wheel chair

10X Wall Squat, Goblet Squat, Back Squat, Front Squat, and Overhead Squat.  Then banded pigeon stretch and wrist mobility.  Then 10X Overhead Squat, Back Squat and Front Squat.

Front Squat


Intent was to work to a heavy 1.  I felt pretty good going in and started at 95#, 115# and 135#.  When I started the 1 reps, I did 145#, but felt my left hamstring tightening up and did the next two at 135#.  I finished the 3-5-10 at 95#, 65# and 65#.

I felt pretty good about the effort.  My form was solid, but lacked speed on the way up.  It helped to move my grip and elbows out.

Cool down with wall squat and couch stretch.
