Are you feeling it yet?

We’ve done a LOT of squatting lately. And we’ve done some other stuff that you might have noticed utilizes the same muscle groups. And you are sore. Do you know why you are doing this? There is a method to the madness and it is not just there so your coach can yell at you and you can dread squat day. It’s there to make you better – more explosive power, more absolute strength, more muscular endurance, and better squat technique. So, as painful as it feels some days,  remember why you are doing it. When you test for a new 1 RM, the vast majority of you will see an improvement – and things like wall balls (squatting) and lunges (kinda squatting) will be easier as well! Well, are you feeling it yet? I am and I am starting to not hate it quite so much. And just so you know, this is supposed to be a back AND front squat program…so you are getting off easy…
