Back Squat 5rm test!

Hey team!

It's time to start bringing in some strength testing to the programming. We've been building volume and intensity since June and people are starting to see some solid progress.

We're going to start with a 5rm test for the back squat. Over the next weeks, you'll get to test other movements as well, and can use that information to help with scaling and future strength work.

When going for a heavy squat, be sure that you are comfortable with bailing out if you need to. If you have never learned how, check in with your coach and watch the video below. You definitely don't want to learn the hard way on this one!

Good luck with the squats... and the wod!
