2 Rounds

10 Front Rack Lunges w/ Dumbbells

B: Box Squat (Find 1RM)

Box Height: When seated you are at or slightly above parallel

Foot Width: Slightly wider than normal

Purpose of box squat: the box squat allows us to train in a slightly different squat position which helps strengthen the posterior chain (hips, low back, and glutes). By squatting down and stopping on the box we remove the bounce out of the whole so we’re working harder to stand up, which reduces our reliance on the back and might help some people avoid their hips coming up while their chest drops down. Removing the requirement of squatting below parallel might allow some people to box squat more than their regular back squat 1RM. Please note you won’t be able to dump the bar off the back so using a spotter on either side is required!
