Front Squat Friday is the last chance to get a big five repper in before we test our Oly lifts again on Monday and Friday of next week. The emphasis today will be bracing , staying balanced and keeping those elbows up for what can seem an age for the heavier sets. Then we strip it back down for the Big Clean Complex and focus on footwork and positioning, while adding a little more each minute.
