Probably not safe for work. Just turn the captions down.

Quick note on high bar vs low bar:
Not one movement is the right movement for everyone and not always in every situation. The high bar squat is definitely what we recommend as far as transferring to other movements like clean and snatch. Low bar isn’t per se bad or wrong, we are just trying to mimic as close as possible a torso position as you would see during a front squat. Not everyone’s body mechanics or flexibility will allow this however, so you may see us position some folks on the low bar position. This is usually done out of necessity for safety and we will continue working towards being able to get the squat to where we can load it in the high bar position. Squat on.

Back Squat
5 reps @ 65-70%
3 reps @ 75-80%
1 rep @ 85-90%
Rest 2-3 minutes between sets


Every two minutes, for 12 minutes (6 sets):
Back Squat x 6 reps @ 75% of 1-RM

    UGH, I think that was the first workout I’ve had to walk away from. Worst cramps of my life after round 4.
