W.O.D. 8.21.11

Warm up:
1 Mile Run

20 Rep Back Squat Max
For this workout of the day, you need to rep 20 back squats with your maximum weight. However, take note that you HAVE to complete the 20 reps in a single attempt. If you rack the bar the set doesn’t count – make sure you are executing proper back squats for each and every rep you’re getting below parallel.

Take your time warming up you legs prior to your attempt, but don’t overdue it as you want to make sure you have enough gas in your tank. You may want to try 65% of your 1-rep max your first go around at this WOD.

Back at Transaxle we were a team for human wheelbarrows and blew the competition away. It was from that day that I knew how funny, thoughtful, and sharply dressed you were. Ok, maybe not from that day, but the rest is true. Happy birthday buddy!
