Back Squat – 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3

Coach’s Notes:  See what you can do in the back squat for 3 reps.  Rest as appropriate between sets.  The more experienced the lifter and the later the set the longer the rest, somewhere between 2 and 7 minutes.  Post load for all sets to comments.

Ooh. Arty…


Today: 167/177/187/197/207/217
(Last time (Feb 4th) 140/150/170/190/200/200)

BTW, the Feb 4th WOD of 5 x 3 reps of backsquat was a crossfit.com site workout, so if you were following this site, it won’t be the same….

Not sure about where to start and stop weight-wise on this one…


Monopolized the one and only rack at Cardel Place for about 30 minutes.


These were actually all PR’s. I can honestly say this was the first time I did squats properly…that is breaking parallel…I was pleased with my effort and realize I still have to sit in front of my TV sitting in the bottom of my squat and improving my technique…
