January 9 WOD: Front squats and a quickie couplet

One week back and I still feel sluggish. Blech.


EMOM 8 minutes
2 front squats at 75-80%

B. Metcon

In working intervals of 60 seconds on, 60 seconds off:

5 power cleans (155/105#)
10 box jumps (24/18")

Ever since I became more conscious about pushing my knees out when I'm squatting, I've felt better about my front squats. There are just so many things to keep in mind when squatting. For example today, these were the things I was mentally reviewing during the SWOD: deep breath, tight core, knees out, weight on the heels, elbows up, exhale, repeat.

My score: 95# (front squats); 6:42 (85#, 18")
