Today we will be a strength focused WOD.  We will meet at 0530 in the '62 room, warm-up and get after it.

For total load, 15-12-10-5 reps of:
Back squat 
Bench press

NOTE:  There is NO time component for this WOD so be sure to work with a partner and use a spotter.  Each person will do the couplet (squat and bench) before moving to the next round.
NOTE2:  This is a high volume WOD for strength, so be sure to focus on proper form.  Do not rush to failure or try to load yourself up too heavy from the get go. 

Post loads to comments.

it was GREAT to be back after 2 weeks of leave! Great to meet Josh Hunter and see Chelley, PJ, and Josh C.

Squat: 115-125-135-165
Bench: 175-185-195-205

I'm not sure why I can bench a whole lot more than I can squat! I really need to focus on building my work capacity for squats.

Squat: 125-155-175-215
Bench: 135-145-155-185(4f)

Didn't realize had 35lb. plates on inside of the squat bar until after the last set. Oh well, have to make it up on the next round of squats.
