STRENGTH

Back Squat (Building to a tough set of 10)

Use your 3 x 12 numbers from 2 weeks ago as a guide. You likely will only get 1, maybe 2 shots at establishing a tough 10, if performed correctly.

Practice a "bail out" at a lighter weight if you are unsure of how to do so properly.

As a general guide, build up in sets of 2 or 3 gradually working your way towards your "goal" number.
After you do a set or two with an empty bar and a little bit of weight, a general guide would be as follows:
1 x 3 @ 50%
1 x 3 @ 55%
1 x 2 @ 60%
1 x 2 @ 65%
1 x 1 @ 70%
1 x 1 @ 75%
1 x 10 @ Goal Weight

Don't wait too long between sets as you build up. Keep the nervous system pumping. We will allot roughly 20 minutes for this.
