Kim- sub with box squat reverse band 5x5x65-70% (do you have a reverse band box squat max? Find a weight that makes you work but able to keep form. It should feel perfect. Your goal is to brace big and set box at just above parallel. Video- if your back has movement (you wont have a butt wink on the box but watch for "movement", raise the box higher if you find that there is movement
Lakin- Only go up in weight until your knees start to cave. If it happens very soon. stop the max effort work and move to sets of 2 with a weight that you keep knees in line.
Shannon- sub with a max effort box squat w/reverse bands. Set box above parallel. If you start to feel you're moving into a "goodmorning" stop the max effort and do sets of 1-2.
Katie- work up to a "moderate" weight. Feel comfortable with the weight and the movement.
Grace- sub with rep scheme 6x4x80% (use your regular squat max for percentage if you don't have a box squat reverse band max) your goal is to keep knees in line. If 80% feels too light, increase. Feels too heavy, decrease. Find the perfect weight.
Rita- go for it as long as you feel mentally there. Remember its always okay to do 5x5, or work up to a moderate weight on the days you're not feeling it.
