Levels 2-4

20:00 – 35:00

Deadlift
Spend 15 minutes working up to a heavy double. This should take 4-5 sets.
Monitor your time–the class moves on regardless of how much time you waste being unprepared to train. 

35:00 – 40:00

Then, within five minutes, perform the following number of Deadlifts at 1.25% of bodyweight (or 80% of your heavy triple–go with whichever is the lower weight) in AS FEW SETS AS POSSIBLE. These are NOT touch-and-go reps; no bouncing–the bar should settle on the floor every rep.

L4 – 20 reps
L3 – 15 reps
L2 – 12 reps

If you were able to hit your target reps in one unbroken set last week, then you can and should go 10-20# heavier (but you should also aim to increase your top double). If you still haven’t hit that number in one set, then stick with the same weight (1.25% bodyweight) until you can.

Obviously the goal is to complete the reps in one set. But you should NOT fail any reps. If you can’t get them all unbroken, just set the bar down and do another set after resting a minute, until you’ve hit your required number. Ask your training partners to check your set up position and keep you honest. If you can’t keep your spine in neutral for the entire lift, ask your coach how to address the issue: spinal segmentation practice, abdominal bracing, hip mobility, deadlift technique practice, or just sucking it up. No participation trophies here, this is training for grownups: if you do the work, you get the credit; if you don’t, you know what you need to do.
