15 Air Squats
3 sets x 5 reps Back Squat
Objective: find a weight that is moderately challenging to build off of every week for the next 8 weeks. Rest 3 minutes between sets. (Compare to 7/11. This is Week 3 of 8)
Back Squats: keep your midsection tight and send your butt slightly back and down. Avoid letting your back round, maintain thoracic extension and only squat as low as proper form allows. Weight should be in the middle of your foot as you reach the bottom – and as you come up from the bottom of the squat.
