It's Mobility Monday and today we will open our hips to prepare us to squat heavy and deep. Squatting is our most functional movement and is the foundation of many other movements, wall balls, thrusters, and ball slams. Squatting under load makes us stronger for box jumps, rowing, and running. Squatting heavy makes our muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons stronger. Squatting heavy develops mental toughness.
Gymnastics Pressing Progressions: 3-5 Rounds not for time. Pick a tuck or L hold, handstand push-up, ring dip and pistol progression you can do. You can pick a progression from different levels as needed.

Today is a heavy day. We are working strength, flexibility, stamina, and power. As you warm up for these sets, consider using the following percentages of your 1RM for the workout 50%-60%-70%-80%-90%-85%-75%-65%-55%. If you have not yet established a 1 rep max, consider establishing one today. Good luck!
