Back Squat Strength Progression

Find a new 5 Rep Max Back Squat

*Eighth week of our Back Squat Strength Cycle. It’s finally here. Find a new max 5 rep back squat. Rest as needed between sets. Be smart on how you warm up and build up to your new weights. When the weight is light, perform only 2-3 reps but with slower tempo to warm up properly. When it starts to get heavy and towards your old 5 rep max, then start hitting the 5 reps. Also, don’t make too big of jumps in weight. Be smart about your weight jumps. Record weights and any pertinent notes.

A Dragonflag will be completed when both the hips and the feet are off the ground on the way up and down. Work on the quality of each repetition of each movement.
