Starting July 10th, we will be pursuing dominance over our Midline. Ensuring that we have trunk strength and stability as well as breath control under duress will create a more successful athlete and human. For the next eight weeks our leg strength will be a modified 7/13 Front Squat/Back Squat Cycle. After establishing a 1 Rep Max Front Squat, athletes will then take 90% (working max) and use it for percentage training over the next 8 weeks. Athletes will perform (4 x 7/13). 4 sets of 7 Front Squats then after racking the bar immediately go into 13 Back Squats (20 total reps each set) with 2:00 rest between sets. We will be squatting twice a week for alternating a Mon/Thur or Tues/Fri training week. This cycle will also support muscular endurance and hypertrophy (bigger stronger legs and butt).

Friday: Establish a New 1 Rep Max
We will also tie in Finishers and movements in Wods that develop midline stability, scapular stability (shoulder blades), overhead loading and other movements in dynamic and static variations.
Athlete Notes: This starts fairly easy in weeks 1&2 but trust us, you’ll be really starting to work as the program builds each week! If you miss a day, you should attempt to stay on track. You can fall into the cycle where needed if you miss a day. However if the percentages are too great for you to accomplish the 4 sets, back down the weight and complete.
