Paintball was awesome today!

PRE-STRENGTH

Spend a few minutes doing glute activation exercises after warm-up (banded glute activation, hip bridges, etc.)

STRENGTH

Build to a 1RM Back Squat

Notes: Use the time today to build to a 1 rep max, and if you’re feeling good go for a PR!  15 minutes to work on strength.
