INTENDED STIMULUS

Front squat strength work to get prepped for our next Benchmark workout. Gator is our next Benchmark Series workout, and it is a challenging one! Short rep range, heavy squats with high rep range push-ups encourage athletes to really push the pace. However, the cumulative effect that these two movements will have on the shoulders, breathing, and midline across 8 rounds will be surprising, so be ready for it. Front Squats should be performed at a pretty challenging weight, but try to hold on for all 5—this may mean to even take a slightly longer rest after Push-up sets than you think you need; it’ll be worth it to prevent additional cleans. Be smart about pacing on the high rep push-ups, and never let yourself go to failure.
