WEEK 9 - SQUAT

Max squat
OR
Squat 10x10 @ 50% 1RM

***If you have been with us less than 6 months you cannot go for a 1RM today UNLESS you aren't new to the lifting world. The reason for this is that it takes time to build the necessary strength in our tendons, ligaments, and muscles to be able to handle heavy weight. Having strong, thick tendons, ligaments, and muscles protect your joints. Not only that, many new lifers don't know how to engage their trunk properly and end up making the squat look like a good morning. Not only is this dangerous for you but it is also dangerous for your spotters. We do teach every lifter how to engage the trunk but it takes rep after rep after rep in order to become efficient at it. Listen to your coaches and don't take it personally if you don't get to max today (or this week).***
