Strength

Deadlift
5-5-5-5-5

Work up to a strong effort set of five 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 progress though each set of five and as you increase in weight.

WOD

50-40-30-20-10
Walking Lunge Steps
Sit-Ups

Workout notes: All bodyweight movements in todays workout! These are very simple exercises but end up being difficult in in higher volume. Do your best to keep your torso upright during your lunge steps and let your trailing knee gently touch the ground.  Remember to keep the sit-ups as strict as possible and avoid an extreme roll or swing up. Throwing the arms forward is totally natural and necessary to complete the rep of course. Optionally, use a dumbbell or two as an anchor to lock in your feet.
