Strength

Deadlift
1-1-1-1-1

Work up to a strong effort Deadlift. The important thing here is that your heaviest lift has good form just like your lightest. Establish a solid base and set your back BEFORE you lift. Maintain your low back as you pick up the bar.  Judge your limits by your strain and the consistency of your mechanics.

WOD

EMOM for 8 Minutes
[odd] Pull-Ups
[even] Deadlifts 185/135lbs

Workout notes: You will spend and equal amount of time with each movement and you won’t get a prescribed rest period between movements so treat this workout like a Tabata style workout where you will try to maintain the same amount of work during each period. The deadlift is prescribed on the lighter side so work with a weight that is lower than 60% of your 1RM.
