Back Squat 3×5 (sets across)
4 rounds for time:
20 Slam Balls (30#/20#)
20 Box Jumps (24″/20″)
Last week I did two days of 3x5 back squat with 185 and they did not feel light. I had not done a whole lot of strength training during sectionals and I was feeling weak. Today I started with 185 on the first set and went up to 195 for the last two sets. They didn't feel light but were still manageable.
The metcon was a burner. I managed to string together more box jumps than I have in the past, so I was glad to see some improvement in that area. The movement itself though is still a gasser. I finished in 7:54.
