The ascending ladder scheme will feel “too easy” in the beginning but then start to get nasty quickly. Resist the urge to sprint out of the gates. The load of the deadlift is moderate and should be a weight that the athlete could do at least 15 reps in a row when fresh.

Every 3:00 for 5 sets
3 Tempo front squats

**Use a weight that allows unbroken sets that bring the you to the edge of failure with good form. Note weights for future reference.

Leg day! Slow your roll today on the squats and get the benefit of controlling your speed on the way down and getting a pause in the bottom. Scale the load to get it right.
