What’s the Hatch?!



Tomorrow will be day 1, week 1 of our new squat cycle program! Let us be consistent and honest with the program. Check below for more info!

The program:

The Hatch Squat Cycle is a great strength program for intermediate and advanced weightlifters looking to get their squat numbers up. This challenging, 12-week squat cycle was developed by Olympic weightlifting coach Gayle Hatch.

How do I figure out my numbers?

A. Take your back squat single from last week and multiply it by the following percentages.

But it says Front squats?

Note: We will opt out of the front squats for the program. Only the back squats!!

Should I?

4. Stick with it, and keep your numbers as true as possible! If you miss a day (which you most likely will.) Make it up after/before/during the weekends!
