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

AMRAP in 8 Minutes
Push-Ups
EMOM perform 20 Double Unders

Workout notes: For this workout your score will be the total number of push-ups you perform in 8 minutes.  It’s a good idea to keep the set sizes small early on and try to manage sustainable sets even though you are treating this workout as an AMRAP.  To Rx this workout perform 20 double unders at the start of every minute.  Scale first by choosing a smaller set size like 10 or 5 reps.
