Tuesday we’re building strength and stamina. You’ll be moving a load you can maybe perform a few front squats (or a squat clean…) with, but because of the bar position (really the only difference, as torso and leg positions are ideally identical), you’ll be able to knock down a great big set. We’ve done sets of 10 back squats a handful of times in recent months, and we even did a 20 rep max a couple weeks ago. Keep the numbers you put up in these instances in mind as you go for your best set of 10 tomorrow.
