In 15 Min, Build to a Heavy Set of 5

Goal is to find a heavy set of five, not necessarily set a 5RM, but if it happens, cool.



6 Dumbbell Strict Press (50/35)

9 Deadlifts (225/155)

30 Double Unders

Scaling Options:

DB weight -> as needed.  Goal should be unbroken every round

Deadlift weight -> as needed.  Shoot for 60% of your 1RM

DUs -> DU attempts through 50 Rope contacts -> 30 Penguin Hops per round


Cool Down:

Calf Stretch on rig – 2 min per side


Roll out T-Spine
