Tyler (top photo) and Ted (bottom photo) go 
orangutan-mode during the some broad jumps.


BBG (off)
Split Jerk
3-3-3-3-3

Take each set (not each rep) from the rack and lower each rep to the shoulders, dipping with the legs to absorb the bar's momentum. Re-rack after each set.


Strength/WL
Back Squat
2 x 5, 1 x 5+


Conditioning
3 rounds AMReAP of:
Pull-ups
Pistols (alternate legs each rep)
Push-ups
DB Front Rack Alternating Lunges, 40% BW

Each movement is performed for 30 seconds and is followed by 30 seconds of rest. The lunges are stationary (not walking) and are forward lunges (i.e., start by stepping forward, not backward). The sub for pistols is jumping air squats.


Finale
Complete 20 or 40 TTB in as few sets as possible (no more than 5 sets). Between sets, practice static handstands (i.e., not handstand walking).

Phil what do you think about this article? I ran across this trying to find videos on how to improve back squat. I enjoyed doing the back squat last night, but it was really uncomfortable on my shoulders so I am looking for ways to improve flexibility to make the lift more comfortable!
