Two strength pieces today, starting with an 8RM Front Box Squat, look to improve on last week’s weight by a few Lbs. Proud posture, and try to lengthen the distance between the sternum and the navel as much as possible. Screw your feet into the ground hard on each ascent. This is a finer point, but when doing RDLs (or any deadlift), we can help maintain a neutral spine by keeping the neck neutral. The distance between the chin and the chest should remain unchanged.
