Video courtesy of T-Nation. Last go at the Back-rack Front Foot Elevated Split Squat before we retest the 5X5. Today, we look to push the muscular endurance a little more with higher rep sets of 10 per leg, 9 per leg, 8 per leg, 7 per leg, and 6 per leg. The set of 10 should be heavy enough where the last rep it takes all you have to keep good form. From there, make increases depending on how the body feels. There may be a set or two where you stay at the same weight. If your body is at that point, play it smart.

Today’s WOD is all about movement efficiency. Look to finish each minute’s work in roughly 30 seconds. What I want you to make your big focus in body position on the air squat. Far too often do I find athletes looking at the ground, thus making their body lean forward during an air squat. Not only does this prevent a full lock out of the hip (finish position = hips and knees fully extended), but it puts stress on the low back. Who needs that?
