Cypher Health & Fitness Hatch Squat Program v2.0

Hello Squatting Enthusiast!

Welcome to version 2.0 of Cypher Health & Fitness’s (Modified) Hatch Squat Program. After the impromptu “Test Run” that many of our members participated in, we have decided to offer it as an option again, but this time with more structure, improvements and useful nuggets that were gleaned from observing some of the things that worked and challenges people went through on the first go round.


The original Hatch Squat Program is a 12-week cycle of Back Squats and Front Squats designed to improve your strength in both these movements. We are modifying or “customizing” it to an 8-week time period to better fit the goals of our members and realities of doing a strength cycle in the greater CrossFit context. You will find that an increase in your strength in the Back Squat and Front Squat has a strong carryover to just about everything we do in CrossFit. We have also included bonus (and optional) strength templates for Pressing and Pulling movements, and some Olympic Lifting for speed/technique maintenance.

Cost & Registration – $75

One important change/improvement in the program compared to last time that should be noted is that this time we will be requiring all participants to PAY US MONEY. HAH ;)! The cost will be $75 as an add-on to your current membership (payment/registration link). I know this may cause sticker shock for some, with symptoms including whining. Don’t worry, I’ve been building up my immunity to this.

Further, we will also be capping the program at 10 participants. This is to ensure there are enough bars, equipment, and minimal schedule conflict for those that would like to get their squats in during and around class times (we will go over this in detail further down).


If you thought that was rough, hold that thought, there are even a few prerequisites to entry!

  1. You have been a Cypher member for 6+ months.
  2. No outstanding mobility or form issues.
  3. No otherwise complicating injuries/medical issues.
  4. You are able to commit for the duration.


Use this payment/registration link. Once you are paid and registered you will receive a packet with all the details, and we will plan a date for you to start.

If you have questions feel free to e-mail me at, but keep in mind that a lot of common questions are addressed in the packet. Thanks for your interest in getting Skrong! We’re looking forward to all the awesome Re-Test PRs and lovely suffer faces along the way >=D!
