REMINDER: All Classes this Saturday (May 19th) will be cancelled, so, come out and watch this awesome event! 

Today at WildFire CrossFit… 

It’s always great to start the week with some Back Squats! 

If building Strength is a goal, doing the Back Squat regularly is a must for all the benefits on the body and the effect is can have on the rest of your training. 

It’s important to have a plan when you are doing Strength exercises like the Back Squat. That’s why keeping track of your workouts in Beyond the Whiteboard is SO important, so that you know exactly what you did in the past. 

This will help you choose your starting weights as well as help you set a goal of how heavy you want to get. 

Today, we are doing 3 sets of 5 reps and 3 sets of 3 reps. While this isn’t necessarily a 3 reps max, we do want you to get heavy today. A good goal to shoot for would be 85-90% of your 1 Rep Max. 

By setting a goal for your end weight, this will help you add weight accordingly as you begin with higher reps.

Then, for the Workout… 

We have a little Endurance/Gymnastics combo for you today. Short and sweet to give you plenty of time for those Back Squats. 

Start your week off right with the 3 Pillars of CrossFit: Weightlifting, Endurance & Gymnastics…and Have FUN!!
