Deficit Deadlift


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Rogue Fitness. Our second run of Deficit Deadlifts this cycle.  The sets drop to 3, so aim to go heavier per set than you did on the 5X5 week. As stated before, the goal here is to build strength in the initial pull off the ground in the deadlift.  By making us stronger in a further distance than our traditional deadlift set-up, we should not have a sticking point right off the ground in a traditional deadlift.  That said, pay extra attention on bracing your core and keeping your back as flat as possible through the lift.



60 Double Unders

40/30 Cal Row

20 Deadlifts (185/125)

10 Pull Ups

Video courtesy of Train FTW.  Want to keep your shoulders from getting blowed up during dubs, try the suggestions here. Looking to push our threshold starting in the posterior chain with the rope work, row, and deadlifts.  Then we’ll shift the pain to higher on the back with the pull ups.  Maintain a good rhythm on the rope, a steady/fast pace on the row, and find manageable chunks for the deads and pull ups

Scaling Options:

Dubs -> cut to 45 Dubs per round -> 120 Single Unders

Bar weight -> 155/110 -> 135/95 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Cat/cow stretch – 2 Min
