Squat Clinic

All our athletes begin squatting with the “air squat,” that is, without any weight other than body weight. As a matter of terminology, when we refer to the “squat,” we are talking about an unladen, bodyweight-only squat. When we wish to refer to a weighted squat, we use the specific terms “front squat,” “back squat,” or “overhead squat.” Training any of these weighted squats before mastering the weightless variant compromises both the safety and efficacy of the training process and the athlete’s potential.

I dig the “throwback" workouts from the last couple of days! Here are some thoughts on this one:


Pull-ups: I believe the goal is have athletes complete relatively large sets. I will have my athletes do a pull-up variation that allows them to complete at least 10-15 reps on the first round, but I will also attempt to keep the overall volume within reason for higher level athletes. For athletes that can complete 30-40+ kipping pull-ups, I will have them perform strict pull-ups today, unless they really want to see where their max effort kipping pull-ups are at. The main reason for having them complete strict pull-ups would be to control the overall volume and potentially reduce soreness from accumulating a high number of kipping pull-ups in 3 sets. For athletes that can perform kipping pull-ups for 10-25 rep sets, I will have them perform kipping pull-ups today. For athletes that can perform kipping pull-ups, but cannot achieve 10 reps in a set, I will have them perform the first set without assistance and the last 2 sets with band assistance to achieve 10+ reps. For athletes that cannot do pull-ups, I will have them use a band with a tension that allows them to achieve 10+ reps. If needed I will have athletes perform a ring row.


Bench Press: I consider the prescribed load to be light. I will have athletes use a load that allows them to complete at least 10-15 reps on the first set. I will also ensure that spotters are used for every set!


Squats: There should not really be a need for scaling this movement today. I will have athletes perform air squats at a speed and range of motion that allows them to maintain sound mechanics.

For what it's worth, I'm not a fan of this WOD, though admittedly that's largely my fault. I gave myself lots of rest to aim for max reps, but that made the whole workout seem long and boring. It also made the squats seem like mild cardio, as I couldn't go faster and maintain form. My pull ups were pathetic, a weird mix of kipping and failed butterfly. As for the bench press, I just felt awkward doing long sets with warmup weight.

Anyway:

15. 12. 14. 23

It was during the 1st set that I realized I’m not sure the difference between a Kip and a Kip swing. So the first 2 round I did the midline stabilization with a couple pull up swing things in there messing up the midline. 3rd round I opted for just the mid line swing. I also changed my music that apparently helped amp it up! Ready for rest day for sure!

INTENDED STIMULUS

.

Okay, let's reach! Let's make this one hurt. This one is straight forward. We want to max out on each and every set. For this to be most productive, we have to guarantee that the skill you are practicing is within the zone in which you can really reach. This is about stamina, not strength. Consider the bench press, for example. This is not meant to be a heavy day. If you are only getting 3-4 reps on the bench press, you are turning it into one and missing the point. We want a weight at which you can get a fair amount of reps. The last reps of each set should target your muscle endurance more than absolute force capacity. The pull-ups are similar to the bench. Modify the movement to something that allows you to get to that muscle fatigue scenario. Don't underestimate the power of a max set of kip swings. For the air squats, the situation is a little different. You can squat the whole minute no matter what, but we want more than that. YOU want more than that. Choose a time window in which you can go for those squats with anger and tenacity - no stopping, not slowing down. Decrease the time if needed. If you let it, today is a fucking beast! BURN!


Note: "any pace" means rest as much as needed between sets.


OPTIONS FOR SCALES


Pull-ups: kip swings + chest-to-bar rack pull-ups*, or if you can do gymnastics kipping pull-ups with a band then that is an option.

Bench Press: choose a lot that you allows you to do fifteen or more reps.

Squats: if you cannot keep up the intensity and the speed for the whole minute consider ding just 45 seconds.



*Do a max set of kip swings and follow immediately with a max set of chest-to-bar rack pull-ups. You can use the bar you have for your bench press.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT:

Max reps always comes with the caveat of 1) having the coordination to go fast and 2) having a combination of strength and stamina to carry out the reps for long enough to make you feel like death after. If your max set of pull-ups is 7, for example, then use that as a testing mark but not as a set for the workout, itself. Set a time cap.


I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: I’m in the 20s-30s at least for the pull-ups/bench press and 50s for squats.


GROUP VERSION: 3 rounds, 2:00 stations of each exercise. No rest in between. Squats can be 1:00 for fast people and give them a 1-minute rest before going back to pull-ups. Also floor press instead of bench press.


INJURY VERSION:

Themes are: stamina/strength mix, rest, pulling, pushing, squatting. Should be able to find three exercises you can do to test max reps on.


WARMUP:

Kip — pull-up prep

Squat — obvs

Jump rope — always

Push-up (wide grip) — bench press prep

[insert thing you suck at]


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 7. Done at a true max reps effort this will be very, very unpleasant

Globo scale: as rxed. Dumbbell sub 50/35lb dumbbell bench press and if no pullup bar dumbbells upright rows, same weight. Bodyweight sub is hand release push ups.

Thanks for the notes!

I definitely hit the muscle endurance target with this

R1- 17 17 48

R2- 15 16 47

Re-up 20 16 45

With kipping p/u and 75lbs. Next time I'd probably try 65lbs

The combo really dummied my shoulders 😁
