More baby squats!!! Pick one cue that helps you improve one aspect of your squat. (Pick a different aspect of your squat from last 2 times.) Today, for all your reps, only think that one cue - but think it AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! Ask someone to watch and see if that aspect of your squat improves.
1. Mobilize them hip flexors! I know some of you are getting tighter and tighter through this Challenge. Grab up our new Kelly Starrett book and become a supple leopard!
2. 3 Supersets of 5 DB weighted box jumps (go up in weight if you can) and 8 (per leg) barbell weighted step-ups to a box. No shifting weight forward over the quads or using a push-off. Pull yourself up from the floor and step up with complete control.
3. Find 1RM Squat
4. Back off to 80-85% of that and perform 3 sets of 3 unbroken, good-form reps, increasing weight if able.
5. If you're feeling feisty, back off 20-30% of that for 2 sets of 5 reps, coming up fast out of the hole.
