NOTE: “Work up to a heavy 8 rep back squat” means take 10-15 minutes to end the strength portion of the workout with one final set of 8 reps at a weight that you perceive to be heavy, NOT an 8-rep max. You can work up to that 8-rep set with sets that are only 2, 3 or 5 reps.
The “metcon” portion of the workout has 60 back squats in total. Your back squat weight should not exceed 50% of your 1-rep max.
SCALING: Option 1: 6 rounds of 10 back squats, 10 burpees
Option 2: Scale the weight and do 15 burpees per round
Option 3: Do 1 round only
