1RM Back Squat
This is Day 2 of the Fitness Testing series! Make sure you are writing this stuff down…The Pushup, much like the Pullup, it is another simple gymnastics movement that reflects strength and stamina produced by our own bodyweight.
The Back Squat is the pinnacle of our single modality weightlifting tests. Strength in this lift serves as the base to all other lifts and lays the foundation for being able to increase your submaximal loads over multiple reps, which equals more of lifting large loads, longer distances quickly!
During the warm up period we will focus primarily on getting good shoulder and hip mobility. We will make sure you are moving well in the squat position before you attempt your 1 rep max.
