Wide Stance High Box Squat
Work up to a 3RM
- 15-18" Box
- If not comfortable for speed: perform sets of x 5
*This is a Max Effort day, so we're looking to get a heavy weight on the bar for 3 reps of a "Wide Stance High Box Squat". This movement is very similar to the regular wide stance box squat, but when we raise you a few inches higher (typical wide stance box squat = 13" - 15"), you should be sitting slightly above parallel now. Meaning you are in a more advantageous and stronger position. So you should be able to lift more weight than usual since you do not have to get out of the hole as much.
We are still looking to sit back on your box to separate the eccentric and concentric parts of the lift, as well as continuing to work on the RFP (rate of force production), speed, and power of the movement. Please make sure we are using spotters if needed!
UB Hang Pwr Cleans (115, 75)
UB Wallballs (20, 14)
*For every set that is NOT UB Complete 5 Burpees immediately. You do not have to reset and start that set over, finish it up and move on. But that does not mean you should not try to go UB every set!
