Today we start a new 6 week squat strength cycle. We are using a strength program developed by Coach Mike Burgener, so we're calling it the Burgener program. It's a great strength program Coach Burgener developed for sports teams and athletes who need leg strength and endurance. We hope you enjoy it.
Today's MWod video is the first in a three part video series on mobility exercises for the squat. Do the banded exercises before you squat today and do the lacrosse ball and barbell smash after your conditioning workout as part of your cool-down and post-workout mobility. You might also want to foam roll before you go to bed tonight. The first week of the Burgener strength program will probably light up your legs.
