WOD - Friday 2021-04-09

OVERVIEW

Today we’re going to take 20 minutes and find a 1RM front squat. The front squat work sets will start at approximately 75-80% and increase throughout the sets. The goal is to find a 1 rep max for the day and possibly setting a new PR. Then we will attempt a 1,000m row with the goal being to hold onto your 500m pace throughout the 1,000 meters. Focus on good technique and breathing during the row to allow yourself a solid effort.
