March 22nd, 2020: HATCH

HATCH is a squat program that you may purchase for 99 cents. With just the click of a button and the program is yours. And yes people, it’s that cheap. DING. DING. This ubiquitous squat program (in the CrossFit space) is 12 weeks long. The focus of HATCH is volume and weight.

First, you begin with back squats. For instance on a given day you may do 4 sets of 8 at a moderate weight or 4 sets of 4 at a heavier weight. Following, you ALWAYS end with front squats. The back squats are insanely heavy, so you’re always looking forward to the front squat. You think the back squats are making the front feel lighter. But guess what? NOTHING IS LIGHT!! This program is made to build your strength and confidence. Even 5 weeks in, I feel like I can lift up the world.

I squatted 200 lbs for 4 repetitions today. I would have never been able to do that previously. Needless to say, I am thrilled with the program. Only 6 weeks left to go. Hey! Maybe I am going to be stronger after this quarantine.
