After a great technique day on the Air Squat on Monday, today we focused on the Back Squat, going heavy and then light and fast.  The Back Squat is indirectly transferrable to so many squatting movements like Wall Balls, Box Jumps, and Burpees.  Developing strength in the Back Squat will directly relate to big lifts in the Front Squat and Overhead Squat — you get more comfortable squatting with heavy loads and you don’t have to worry about your legs in those more technical lifts.  And we all know what happens with bigger Front and Overhead Squats — new PRs in the Clean and Snatch!!  It all comes down to this – if you squat more and squat heavy, you will develop in all of your other lifts and become a more powerful athlete.
Today’s WOD Killers:  Alyssa (6 rds + 23 squats), Craig (5 rds + 9 squats), Cory (4 rds + 25 squats + 200M run), Michelle (4 rds + 25 squats + 200M Run @ 45 lbs)
