CrossFit Mission Gorge begins the Hatch Squat Program this week. This is a 12-week squatting program developed by U.S. Olympic weightlifting coach Gayle Hatch. The program calls for two squat workouts per week, and every rep of every squat workout in this cycle is determined by a percentage of your 1rm back squat or 1rm front squat. If you are new to our gym and/or do not know your 1rm back squat and 1rm front squat, you will need to gauge your efforts off your previous weight for reps in these movements.
If you know your 1rm back squat and front squat (and if you've been a member at CFMG for 6+ months, you should!), simply plug them in to this spreadsheet and your squat loads for the entire cycle will be calculated for you.
This is an excellent program that many of our coaches and athletes have experienced significant gains in their squats and other lifts. We are confident you will reap the benefits, as well, and we look forward to seeing you through your own gains in the next 12 weeks of programming.
