    Back squat:

    Climb to a new 1RM using warm-up sets of no more than 5 reps before adjusting weight. Rest as needed, and keep total number of lifts under 20. (Ex. 5, 5, 3, 3, 1, 1, 1)

    Then, as many rounds as possible in 6 minutes:

    3 Lateral burpee*
    6 1-arm kettlebell Thruster @ 50-60% of Turkish Get-up 1RM

    If squat mechanics or range of motion fail, Thruster becomes push press. Weight does not decrease unless push press also fails. Switch arms as desired.

    *Lateral burpees involve a two-footed, side-to-side jump over an implement of your choice and do not include the clap overhead.

    Squat. Worth revisiting from time to time. Anatoly Pisarenko. Squat.
