Clocked up about 15 minutes of Acevedo's SLIPS practice done before FS. Needed a little push up on the pistols. Need all the warm up I can get at 44. The FS warm ups really helped my form.

FS@ 75. 80. 85. 87.5. 90. 92.5. 92.5. 92.5. 95kg (1RM is 110 from 2013)

Prev. only managed 5s and 3s @ 65. 70. 75. 77.5. 80kg before tweaking my back.

205-205-225-225-225-245-255-265-275 (pr)

compare to was 185x5s,205x3s,and 225x1s

I usually instruct my students to treat workouts like this as work days not PR days but damn did I feel good today! I set today up as a work day thinking I would do singles at 245 but that felt pretty easy! (I also tell them that PRs don’t always present themselves when you expect them)

Belt used for the final lift only. Lifting shoes and knee sleeves today.

Did stiff/stiff presses to handstand for ten minutes and freestanding practice for ten minutes afterward.

Started off very light with no intention of going too heavy for the singles but ended up finishing ten pounds heavier than last time on last single.

Heavy day! This is a fun day. Two main ways to attack this. You can go for total volume or for total load. In the first one we want to find the heaviest single we can. That means all the previous sets are sub-maximal and you are just building to that super heavy single. If you were scoring this, that big lift would be your score. If you are going for volume we are going to lift heavy on every set, 5's and 3's included. If you were scoring, your score would be the sum of all lifts. They are not maximal lifts, but they are close. Both avenues are productive, both will get that heavy stimulus that we want. If you aren't feeling super fresh go for that heavy single. If you are ready to work today get that volume on! Whatever you do keep this in mind: how you move on your warm up sets is how you move on your heavy sets. Don't wait for the bar to get heavy to work on your bracing and your mechanics. Focus on this from the first rep to the last. Also, focus only on the rep at hand: channel your zen, full attention.  For athletes struggling with form remember this: loading a movement challenges and reinforces whatever motor pattern you are capable of, so loading crummy mechanics will challenge and reinforce them. If you need to develop your technique that should be your focus today. The options below might help you!

▶ OPTION for Front Squats

5 sets of

5 Frankenstein Squats + 5/5 Frankenstein Forward Lunges (technique bar)


4 sets of

2 Superslow* Frankenstein squat 

60 seconds preacher stretch

*20 seconds descent and 20 seconds ascent


3 sets of 

3 3-pause front squats

Pauses are at: parallel, bottom and parallel. This will give the coach a chance to adjust mechanics. 


Spend 10 minutes building to a set of 5 squats with the best mechanics your athlete can produce today. 


Today we are going to start building on a full flow. This should be super fun:


3 sets per leg. 

Front Scale Leg Lifts

5 Front Scale to Back Scale Transitions

Do without breaks and without putting the foot on the floor. 


5 sets per leg

5 Back Scale to Handstand (use wall as needed)


5 sets per leg

5 Forward rolls to pistol squat

Considering the intended stimulus, how long do you suggest resting between sets on the front squat ? These heavy workouts have a tendency to get away from me time-wise, and with 20 minutes of SLIPS to boot.

Skipped the slips, due to time. Followed the front squat option workout, though. Ended up at 125 lbs for a solid 5 squats. Could have gone to 135 but, again, ran out of time.

Globo Scale-if you are at a standard commercial gym, your garage, or Globo you should be able to do this as rxed. Have spotters, spotting arms, or bumpers and a place to bail if going for a max. This is best done with bumpers and a place to bail, however.

If without a barbell today use the heaviest dumbbells available (or able to clean from the ground) and do 6 AMRAP sets of front squats with the heaviest dumbbells possible, rest as needed between sets. Unlike back squats, we want to load the quadriceps more here, thus the db front squat sets.
