S/S/S:

Deficit Deadlifts

5X3

Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Rogue Fitness.  Third time hitting Deficit Deadlifts this cycle!   Reps drop to 3 per set, so aim to go heavier per round than the 3X5 week. As we now know, benefits of the Deficit Deadlift include Increased Leg Strength and Drive, Lower Back and Posterior Chain Strength, Greater Force Production from the bottom of the lift, a Better Set Up for regular deads, and Greater Time Under Tension (longer range of motion=longer time to do the reps).  Re-set the back and hips after EVERY rep.  Last thing I want is you pulling in a deficit position with the hips waaaayyy high and body out of position.

WOD:

EMOM 16:

 

Min 1- 16 Plank Down-Ups

Min 2- 14 Wall Balls (20/14)

Min 3- 12 Pull Ups

Min 4- 8 Alt DB Snatch (50/35)

 

The goal should be to finish the work of any given minute in 45 seconds or less.  With these rep schemes, this is very doable.  Keep the movements efficient.

Med Ball weight -> 14/10 -> as needed

Pull Ups -> Buddha Pull ups -> Ring Rows -> Table Row

DB weight -> 35/25 -> As needed
