Giant Squats!

Workout Notes:

  1. We are continuing with our typical/atypical programming this week. I’m loving it, are you? I think the Hatfield method is just what are bodies needed this week.

  2. The warm up and the finisher on this workout are important today. When you put a heavy bar on your back and squat it, your spine takes a lot of that load and becomes compressed. The ab work and the stretching, more so the piri stretching will help decompress the spine.

  3. Again with the giant sets! And again with the stacking! More front squats. Sshhh…it’s ok.

  4. And also, in case you missed yesterday’s notes…Want to know where "Hatfields" come from? Hatfield: What, How & Why 

  5. Make sure to watch the demo vids for the back and front squats. Bar placement is key!

  6. Remember, you can back squat much heavier weight than you can front squat. Don’t even think about using the same bar for that. Which leads me to say, sharing bars will be a must in a busy class, especially on the rack.
