New stuff in today’s workout

In the October coaches meeting, someone asked me if there was a typo on the October 16th programming. Nosiree, that there is a 10-rep max back squat.
This will challenge you to:
1. Be mentally tough
2. Take in oxygen under load
3. Handle a heavy load over time (do it right & you’ll have a barbell on your back for 60-90 seconds)
Well, you’ve got 15 minutes to get there.
But here’s my challenge to you – the last time we did sets of 5 back squats, what was your heaviest set?
Take that number, and do it 10 TIMES!
You’ll have to go at a slower pace…
And work on breathing between reps…
And concentrate… and stay tight…
And tell the demons in your head to shut the hell up.
But do it. Let me know how it goes…

And oh yeah, part B has something new for you too.
Carry something heavy – is it two kettlebells?
Is it a med ball?
Is it a weight vest?
Is it a sandbag?
Your choice… what’s heavy & challenging for you?

A. Rope Climb: 10 minutes skill practice
B. 10-1 Ladder Not for time:
*Begin your first set of deadlifts at 30-35% of your 1-rep max.
Add weight each set.
Set your weights in your sets to get to 85% your 1-rep max for your last lift.
Then we’re jumping rope or AirDyning so save your legs some for that. The point of this work is to lift a heavy load (WITH PERFECT FORM) as the reps get lower but not actually max out today. Save that for next week’s CrossFit Total.)
Rest 3:00
