WOD Tips:

-Today’s strength format is a great way to build volume with the back squats at a heavy weight, while also working the top end near our 1 rep max. This will help us

to develop our maximal strength while also building the muscular endurance of our legs. Sets 1, 3, and 5 serve as the baseline in this workout, and this weight will

stay the same for all the sets of 5. For sets 2, 4, and 6 you will be increasing the weight each set with your final repetition falling close to 90% of your 1 rep max.

-“Spring Swing” combines a challenging combo of thrusters and kettlebell swings in the classic 21-15- 9 format. The thrusters should be on the lighter side, where

each round can be performed in 1-2 sets. The kettlebell swings will be heavier by comparison, but should still be a weight that you can do in 1-2 sets each round. The

runs will take up nearly 50% of the time of this workout, so aim to keep a solid pace on these. As you get to the round of 9, go unbroken on the thrusters and swings

and try to empty the tank on the final run.
