WOD - Thursday 2021-02-11

OVERVIEW

Today’s WOD is a heavy weightlifting day that challenges overhead strength and flexibility. The goal is to build to a heavy set of 3 overhead squats. We will build to 75-80% of our 1RM during warm-up sets and look to maintain that load throughout our 5 sets or we can continue building to heavier sets through the 5 working sets. Rest will be very important after each set so look to take approximately 3 to 4 minutes of rest between sets.

  • 30 second handstand hold

  • 5 heel elevated plate squats
