Deadlift 225/155 lb
Workout notes: Today’s workout is a hero workout from CrossFit.com. Hero workouts usually add another layer of difficulty to movements and rep schemes that we commonly see. Today we have benchmark weights you are probably familiar with but a difficult rep scheme. We start by descending with the familiar 21-15-9 drop set but then repeat the rep scheme in reverse. You will mostly likely be fatigued at that point so pay special attention to your mechanics and maintain good form throughout those difficult final rounds. If you are new to CrossFit perform just the first 3 rounds of the workout and chop off the ascending part of the pyramid.
