Brand New Squat Cycle- Take the first 5 Minutes To fill out your new sheet. This is going to be really simple compared to the last one. Going to have 2 squat days programmed in so it will be over before you know it. This is one of the oldest strength programs(Called “squats and milk”) in the book and this 2 day variation is used at CrossFit Mayhem.
It will test you physically and mentally. This is an easy week. Prepare for sore legs. Every session you attend you are going to go for 20 unbroken reps of heavy back squat, starting at week 1 with 60 percent of your 1 rep max. Your sheet has 18 sessions listed on it. Every session add 5 pounds onto your last number… and go for 20. its that simple.

Then 10 reps at 40 percent of your 1 rep max
Now the fun part 20@60% percent of your 1 rep max.
