1) EMOM for 5 minutes:
2 Hang Squat Cleans @ 70%
Notes: This is meant to provide a warm up for both the legs and the CNS. DO NOT go above the prescribed weight. Each set should be easy and fast.
2) 30 minutes to establish a 1RM HBBS.
Notes: The Cleans should provide a good warmup, but you will still need some Squat sets of 2-3 reps. Once you reach the 80-90% range, take 2 minutes rest then perform a “Walkout” (simply set up like you’re going to squat, walk out of the rack, and hold the weight on your back for 5 seconds – DO NOT attempt to squat – belts are recommended for this movement) with 5-10% more than your projected maximal Squat. If you are projecting 400#, walk out with approximately 425#. After your “Walkout”, rest 2 minutes then begin your near maximal and maximal attempts. If you have not missed an attempt you may go slightly over the time limitation.

Disappointed and surprised with the weak effort on the squats. Granted I hadn't squatted heavy in a few weeks and I've lost about 10# since adding back all of the conditioning work. Also did this attempt on an empty stomach first thing in the a.m. 2 months ago I squatted this weight for 5 x 5. I just checked my PRs and see the last time I attempted a 1RM it was 230, so technically this is a PR.
