Back Squats & Hammer Gone Bad
It’s Hammer time! Sledgehammer training can and will develop strength in the core, muscular endurance, explosiveness, coordination, and will help you develop killer grip strength. Hammer Gone Bad. Make sure to bring your flannel.
How are your back squats coming along? Hopefully, if you’ve been following along these past few weeks, you should be seeing some significant gains from the beginning of this strength cycle. Keeping a journal of your efforts really goes a long way and when it comes time to work on one rep max day, you’ll really be able to blow your previous PR out of the water. So if you haven’t really taken this linear progression seriously, it’s now or never, baby. Go for it!
