PERCEIVED INTENSITY - 7/10

 

INTENDED STIMULUS

Starting with some high quality overhead squat work. As always, with this challenging movement encourage technique first, then add weight if able. There should be no misses (no one should be going for a 4 rep max), but instead working on solid movement and technique (missed reps don’t make you stronger). This is followed by a conditioning/skill EMOM to finish up. Make sure to have athletes focus on an active shoulder position on the lunge. Good opportunity to work on the dip skill movement and kip coordination.
