Rest day!

Awesome work everyone on those back squats!!  So many big PR’s and big lifts this week!  I hope you all rest hard today!!  We’re going to establish a Snatch and C&J 1RM next week.  And then 2nd week of April we will begin our Olympic Lifting cycle.

The mobility focus for this week are the ankles.  I have talked about ankle flexibility in the past and how it can interfere with and limit your range of motion during squats.  We spent a few minutes in class on Wednesday going through some ankle stretches before the back squats, but here are some other ankle mobility exercises that you may want to add to your arsenal.
