Beginning today, CrossFit Mission Gorge will be following the Hatch Squat Program. 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 come gauge your efforts off your previous weight for reps in these movements.
Once you know your 1rm back squat and front squat, you 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 look forward to seeing you through your own gains in the next 12 weeks of programming.
