Today’s goal is to front squat a heavy load for four reps across eight sets. This weight should be something that requires all of your attention and focus. It is a weight that you could squat for 5-6 reps but definitely not any more.
If we know percentages, you are looking to start your first set around 70-75% of your best front squat. You should aim to increase the weight across most or some of the eight sets. Not every set needs to jump in weight, however, plan to lift your heaviest load on set seven. This way if you bail or fail a lift, you have another opportunity to make a change and finish on a successful set. Aim to rest at least 2:00 between sets. If you are comfortable working with a partner, it will save you trips back and forth to the weights
