Quality before Quantity

DSC01701Amelia reaching full extension.

One the most common faults we see with high rep squatting is not completing the squat at the top. Too often athletes "short room" the squat for the sake of speed. Don't forgo quality for the sake of quantity. In the photo above we can see that Amelia has reached the top of her squat and is poised for another quality rep. Remember... faults in these basic movements will lead to glaring mistakes with more complicated movements such as the clean.  "Don't be that guy".

Workout: 3 rounds of:
2 minutes of "Double Unders" (max reps)
25 Pull ups (for time)
Rest 3 minutes

Score is total "Double Unders" minus the time for pull ups (in seconds)
