6-8-20 Lower Body

Wow, it's been a hard last 3 weeks of training. This week will be a deload week. It's not the time to take off and do nothing (unless your body really tells you it's needed). The purpose of a deload is to allow the body to recover with less intensity/weight.  Stick to the percentages today so that you're ready for next Monday's Max Effort Full Squat.


Main work

  • Squat 3x6x60%

Auxiliary work

  • seated goodmornings - banded if possible and use an SSB bar if you have one 3x6-8
    moderate weight
  • DB sumo deadlift w/feet elevated 3x12-14
    moderate weight
  • single leg deadlift 3x6-8 each leg


Complete a 15min AMRAP of:

  • 20 front squats @40% of your 1rep max
    if you don't know your 1rep max, choose a lightweight to keep moving
  • 8 pull ups
  • 8 burpees or ball slams
