If you didn’t see this coming that’s ok! We’ve had quite a few heavy days that have involved squatting over the last few months, 5x5s, 3RMs, EMOM style, tempo sets, heavy front squats, etc. So, even if you didn’t see a 1RM back squat day coming, fear not, if you’ve been fairly consistent the last few months, you’re ready! For those who haven’t done much lifting recently, for whatever reason, then consider not shooting for a new 1RM, but instead make today a training day RATHER than a testing day. We’ve talked lot’s about the distinction between the two recently. If you are an athlete newer to the Hut or have never done any heavy lifting, do more repetitions per set and slowly work up in load as you feel comfortable. Your coaches are here to guide you, so use us! Those of you ready to fire away and hit a new PR… pick your number, plan backwards, rest at least 3 minutes between sets (especially the last few), and go for it!
post new 1RM!
