Perform these lifts as a superset–finish the deadlifts, shake out your limbs, take a couple of breaths, and then start the presses. If you are sharing a platform, set up the deadlift bar at the very front so two people can lift at the same time, and stay close to the rack while pressing.

30 seconds work/15 seconds rest, alternate between exercises
Alternating Dynamic Lateral Lunges
First interval is lunges, then rest, then second interval is push-ups, rest, and back to lunges, etc. for 6 rounds total.
Lateral Lunge: Starting with feet hip width apart, step Right foot out wide, hinging at the hips and shifting your weight onto that Right leg, while the Left leg remains straight, then push off the Right foot to return to the start position and switch to the other side. To increase difficulty, take your opposite hand to your lunging foot at the end range (but only if your spine remains neutral). To add more intensity, explosively transition to the other side without stopping in the initial setup position.
T-Push-up: From plank, perform a push-up, then twist your body (legs, hips, and torso) 90 degrees, so you are on the edges of your feet with one hand reaching straight up and one hand planted on the floor, return to plank, push-up, and twist to the other side. This can be done with hands on a box if necessary.
40 yd Uneven Kettlebell Carry
Hold a heavier bell in one hand like a suitcase and a lighter bell in the rack position on your chest. Slowly walk the length of the turf, lower the bells to the floor with control, switch the weights and walk back. Rest and repeat.
