A.) 20 rep Breathing Back Squats
You guys should know the deal. Work up to a heavy double or single, then try and add 5-10lbs onto whatever you did last week. If you failed, try the same weight or lighter. You only get 1 shot at this. You should look like you’re about to vibrate off the floor about 14 reps in. Dig Deep and remember those 3 big breaths!!
B.) 15min. AMRAP:
21 Wall Balls 20/14
15 Cal Row or Bike or 200m Run
9 Deadlifts 225/155
*Because it’s 20 rep day (and you might be dead right now) I will give you the option of doing this in a Team format. Just double the numbers to 42-30-18, one person works at a time and have fun!
*Another fun option would be doing DB deadlift. 70/50s or more
2 min easy cardio then stretches 1 & 2 for at least 30 sec each.
