It’s Back Squat day! This week is doing a number on the lower body. We almost always give it a break from either hinging (think Deadlift) or Squatting, but this week didn’t turn out like that, so make sure everyone is being smart with their recovery. We are, however, switching gears from hip hinging yesterday to squatting today.
We want the only focus to be the Back Squat today, so the whole session will be designed with that in mind. We used the rep scheme (4’s) simply because it is uncommon, which helps with adaptation, and we programmed 6 sets because we want to overload the neuromuscular system and get the body working optimally under fatigue.
