Continuing our goblet squat series! Remember to be meticulous about mechanics. We recommend doing the warmup and (if you like) this WOD barefoot and being mindful of raising your arches, gripping with your toes, driving from the heel and keeping the whole foot on the floor! Remember to keep track of your weights for this progression the same way we would if you were coming into the gym.
Be stable on the lunges.
