WOD - Friday 2021-02-19

OVERVIEW

Today’s WOD is a strength training session with the focus to test lower body strength. We will build across the 5 sets to a heavy set of 5. The focus is on a strong supportive upper body position, good bar path (chest and hips rise together), equal load through the foot and keeping the elbows high and up. We will start around 75% and increase the load throughout the sets ending with a heavy set of 5. Refrain from putting the weight belt on too early and focus on a strong and braced core to support the load. Take a deep breath at the top of each rep and hold it throughout the rep. Each rep should start with its own deep breath.
