Strength Tip

Front Squat: focus on high elbows and entire hands on the barbell. Build the capacity to maintain thoracic extension under load. The front squat doesn’t allow the athlete to lean forward, so ensure you are driving through your midfoot and allow your knees to travel forward, loading force on the quads.

Barbell Walking Lunge: start with an upright posture. Lower under control to a point where your back knee is just above the ground. Drive through the center of your foot to the starting position, engaging your glutes.

2 Rope Climbs
50 Double-Unders

Workout Tip

Be as efficient as possible on the rope climbs because the DU will burn out your grip. The second part should be 100% all out.
