WOD for Tuesday

We have started a front squat and back squat program if you have not noticed on Tuesdays, keep that in mind many were sore from last week but hopefully with consistence you won’t be terribly sore in the future. Please keep in mind that with a program like this it is important to stretch and do soft tissue work on yourself to keep you happy and healthy!

Front squat: 10 sets x 3 reps 72% of 1 rm

Then

Teams of 3: Max Cals Ski or Row in 10 minutes switch every 15/10 cals
