Monday, May 5, 2014: Let the Squatting Begin!

During the next six weeks we’re going to change up our strength training and focus heavily on back squats.  Devoting more time to squatting will not only improve the quality of our squats, but it will also help us to increase speed and power, while enhancing stability and decreasing the likelihood of injury. Furthermore, it’s going to make your legs and butt look really good!

 

The program that we are using is customized for each athlete.  Please take a moment to follow the link below and enter your current 1 rep max back squat (Note: this is the maximum weight you have lifted in the past month, not a lifetime 1 rep max). Then save or print the results and bring it with you to the gym.
