Post Front Squat Loads and Workout Time to Comments
For the Front Squat, take 12-15 minutes to warm up and set a 1RM for the day.  You should work up to the heaviest weight that you know you can get, which is probably more like 98% of your true 1RM.  Do your best to NOT fail on any reps.  It’s ok to leave something in the tank for next time. 

For the conditioning workout, use around 50% 1RM for the OHS.  Burpees should have a jump at the top.  This workout should take less than 10 minutes so scale accordingly.

As a finisher, perform 3 sets of 8 rep Turkish Situps on each arm.
