Scaling Guide: 9 – 15 minutes. Scale up to axle deadlifts and squats at 155/105lbs (most axles are 15lbs)
Coaching Tips: Don’t sacrifice spine stability because you are winded! Jog in from the runs and take a moment before picking up the bar. Break the sets up early if you feel like you are having trouble using good form. The total distance on the run is one mile, so pace the running at or just a bit faster than what you might run a mile in. Squat cleaning the first rep of a set does count as one of the front squats.
