GMSP Cycle 1 Day 4

FRONT SQUAT WEDNESDAY!

I think of it this way if I can squat it, I can clean it! I tend to try my best to front squat my 1RM clean as many times as possible to ensure that if I were to catch it in the clean, I can be 100% confident I will can stand it up. Sort of a “mind over matter” kind of thing. With the front squats we will be playing with pause squats, tempo squats, and speed squatting. Every other week will be a heavy double or heavy single front squat to build a better core to handle the back squat weight.

*FORM CHECK
-High elbows ensures better balance throughout the movement
-Heels Heels Heels
-Remember to inhale and squeeeeez your belly! (mid-line stabilization)
