Monday 10-02-23 Workout Of The Day
For the next three months, we will be performing a squat cycle where we will be squatting twice a week. To kick this week off we will be performing front squats for sets of five on Monday and back squats for set a five on Thursday. Next week we will be front squatting on Tuesday and back squatting on Friday. This squat cycle will consist of a three week build, followed by a one week deload. If you would really like to see progress in your squats Track the weight you’re using during every session. After the first deload week try to increase your weights by 5 pounds if possible. We will be working in a second strength movement in the fur minute window along with the squats to build upper body, pulling and pressing strength as well.
Week one will be sets of five front squats Monday back squats Thursday
Week two will be sets of three, front squats on Tuesday back spots on Friday
Week three will be a 5-3-1 rep scheme
Week four will be a deload week Where we will be, knocking the weight down and performing different variations of the squat.
This program is based on the Wendler 5-3-1 program and is a proven and effective way of building your squat.
As with any exercise, prioritize movement and mechanics over the weight on the bar. Depending on stress levels, sleep, nutrition, recovery from sickness don’t worry about the load you’re lifting and make sure you’re moving as well as possible.
