Week #4 of "Grunt Work".

After our first three weeks of ascending back squat percentages, we are taking a brief recovery from the heavier weights. Not a full deload week (3 weeks out there), but a chance to recover for the next push ahead.

Pausing back squats, coupled with the jump rope to start our day and add a light breathing component to the repetitions. Although reduced percentages, this will still prove to be a good challenge for us.

Repeating our snatch primers from last week, with the intentions on building in loads, followed by a squat snatch complex.
