Tuesday WOD 20080930

Back Squat 5-5-5-5-5 reps.

CFOZ version

Two minutes of cardio (your choice), samson stretch, CFWU x 3 (x 2 if in first two weeks of WODs)

Use a pvc pipe or broomstick to practice the form on these. If you have access to weights, begin with a light, empty bar. Take two to three minute breaks between each set to allow glycogen replenishment of the muscles. This is not done for time. You are going for your five rep max (5RM.) Make sure you only count reps where your hips go below parallel.

  1. Backsquat 5-5-5-5-5

    Warmup x 2

    55×5 (warm-up)
    75×5 (warm-up)
    145×5 (PR)

    I’m really happy with this. 145# was my previous 1RM, so to be able to do it for 5 reps has me stoked!
