High Performance Update:

Come join us for our 1st HP session of 2012 at 7:30pm!  Bring in any fun wods that you have found to add to the bucket.


Today`s Workout:

Buy In – Widow Makers – 20 Rep Back Squat.  Do a few warmup up sets to get close to your starting weight.

What is a Widow Maker? It is a 20 rep back squat with a very challenging weight.  After a few repetitions, you think that you will not be able to complete 20 reps.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Stay tight – your poor form will surely degrade with such high reps.
  • Take two or three breaths between reps. You’ll need the oxygen, this isn’t a sprint. If you can rip these reps off, then the weight you choose is too light. These sets can take as long as three minutes to finish.
  • I’ll say it again – stay tight. The upper body will be working crazy hard to keep the midline stable while trying to support the weight and fill the lungs with air.
  • These will be a lesson in mental stamina. First of all you are doing a set of twenty with a weight you should only be able to do for ten (which is hard to wrap your head around).
  • Plus, two and half to three minutes is a long time to have that weight on your back, it gives that voice in your head plenty of time to talk you out of your next rep.
  • Keep focus through out the entire set. Convince yourself you will not quit.
  • Keep spotters close.
