From Starting Strength: "Rip explains the positioning of the grip and the bar for the low bar back squat."
As Rip explains at the beginning of the video, this will not be the most exciting video you've ever watched, but it contains extremely useful information on how to properly grip and position the bar during the low bar back squat.  Both of these topics have a significant impact on how much weight you can safely and correctly squat, so learning more about these topics (as well as avoiding common problems such as tendonitis) can help you get stronger in the squat and therefore get stronger as a human being.  And that, my friends, is exciting indeed.  Happy viewing.

BBG (off)
Clean Pull + Power Clean: 2(1 + 1)
1st: Work to a max for the complex (10 min)
2nd: 90% x 2(1 + 1) x 2 (5 min)

Click here for a video of the clean pull as well as a detailed explanation.

"2(1 + 1)" means 1 clean pull and 1 power clean followed immediately by another clean pull and another power clean, i.e., 2 repetitions of "1 clean pull + 1 power clean."

Power Clean

Partner WOD!
In teams of two, complete the following for time:
50 Box Jumps, 24"/18"
50 Push-ups
50 Double-unders
50 Burpees
50 Double-unders
50 Push-ups
50 Box Jumps, 24"/18"

This is done "tag-team" style - this means that only one partner may be working at a time, and partners tag each other (high-fives work well) to switch from working to resting. All reps of one movement must be completed before moving on to the next movement.

Compare to 2015.02.19.

Accumulate 2:00 on your hands (handstand, handstand walking, L-sit, etc.). While resting, be sure to get some mobility work done.
