Work up to a strong effort set of two deadlifts. This doesn’t necessarily mean you go up to max effort, but work up in weight as you feel comfortable. Judge your effort by the strain it takes you to achieve each lift. New lifters should keep the load light and work on proper body mechanics as they increase in weight. Start with a light weight and make sure that you have established a straight back and an appropriate setup as you address the bar. Be sure to maintain your posture as you increase in weight.
Power Clean 135/95
*200 m run after each round
Today we’re working with a higher volume of power cleans. Choose a weight that you can do several reps in a row with at the beginning of each set. Use the run to allow your grip and breathing to recover but pick up the pace on the last 200 meters to finish out strong!
