STRENGTH: Back Squat – Complete 6 sets of 5 reps – aim to work up in sets as you go along at a Coach’s discretion. This is just a little bit of maintenance work – don’t push the load too much.
CONDITIONING: Complete for time:
15-12-9 reps of: Deadlift @ 225/165 (ideally, UNBROKEN, but not necessarily if you are still getting comfortable with repping deads), after each set, 30 Air Squats
