Kicked off Max Effort Monday with an exploration of the box squat. Much greater focus on the posterior chain than our regular back squat and a whole new skill to learn as well!
To get the heart rate going, we did some heavy sandbag drags paired with hanging l-sits.
The WOD also had a bit of a strength bias:
5 rounds for time & quality
1 Strict pull-up
1 Handstand push-up
3 Strict pull-ups
3 Handstand push-ups
5 Strict pull-ups
5 Handstand push-ups
Range of motion was key for the HSPUs with a goal of completing all sets unbroken (especially the 1’s…)
