Coach's Note:

Last heavy squat session before maxes! Get all you can out of today and be prepared to crush some weights! The warm-up should move quickly to provide plenty of time for mobility and and getting prepared for your squats. Remember, more than last time. Suggested increases are 10-20lbs. The Wod is going to be a real grip burner. Knees to elbows can be a tough movement. Keep working on your midline/core strength as well as your pulling and grip strength. You can scale these down to toes to bar or knees to chest. This is a short one so we are looking for some real intensity but good, clean movements at the same time. An injury slows you down, it slows your progress down and it slows your motivation down. Maintain good position with your deadlifts. Stay tight and flat and pull hard. There is a new mobility today; the banded hip distraction.
