Barbell originates from the ground – no racks. Recommended weights are 205/145 lbs, but athletes are encouraged to scale up such that the load is between 75-80% of your 1-RM Front Squat. The intended stimulus is that you should be able to grind through 8 unbroken reps in the first round, it should be possible but very difficult to achieve that on the second and third rounds.
