It was the last day of January, and the weather was rough outside. Snow and ice always make getting to class an adventure, but we had four brave soldiers make it in safely!

The strength portion would consist of Back Squats, working up to three sets, and it seemed like almost everyone PR’d! Generally if we’re doing 5 sets of 3 reps, that final set will be written as “3+”. This means that the goal is to get those three reps, but IF the athlete can do more reps, they should continue on. Jamie got an awesome 6 full reps on his final set! You can see by the picture below that his range of motion was awesome even when he started to get tired. Well done, sir.

Nice depth on that squat!
