800m Run (Time)

Max Effort 800m Run
2 Sets: 800 Meter Run

Rest 3:00 between efforts.

Goal here is to hold as even splits as you possible can. This will be a repeatable portion to build mid-range capacity, so starting with a conservative pace and aiming to match that to the second on each round is the goal to start. For tracking below, only enter your slowest round. This will be the number we will focus on.

Front Squat (9 x 1 )

9 Sets of 1 Tempo Front Squats

There are (3) pauses in each repetition.

3 second pause at parallel, 3 second pause in the bottom, 3 second pause back at parallel.

Note – the range of motion from parallel to the bottom of our squat will not be dramatic. The actual distance may not be dramatic, but the tension under those specific positions are what makes this challenging and productive.

Week 4 of 4 on our Tempo Front Squats. The most challenging pauses will be at parallel, as opposed to the bottom of the squat. Expect to be challenged here. It is a constant battle to improve our front rack position – not to just maintain it, but trying to improve it throughout.

Sets 1-3 – 1 Rep @ 53% 1RM Front Squat

Sets 4-6 – 1 Rep @ 58% 1RM Front Squat

Sets 7-9 – 1 Rep @ 63% 1RM Front Squa
