Sumo Deadlift
2-2-2-2-2

Work up to a heavy double in the Sumo style deadlift.  If you are used to traditional deadlifts spend a good portion of time familiarizing yourself with the mechanics of the lift.  The basics of setup are to start by lining up your shins parallel to the bar and in a wide stance with your arms hanging straight down from the shoulders.  You may find that you are stronger or weaker with one of the lifting styles. That can give you a good indication of where your dominant strength chain is.

Toe-To-Bar
Box Jumps 24/20″

Workout notes: Today’s workout is a task priority couplet that lands in a shorter time domain due to the low number of reps required.  We start with a large set of toe-to-bar and the set size descends every round.  Drop sets are introduced to let you keep keep moving as the work becomes more difficult. Protect your hands from tearing with the toe to bar and scale to some form of sit-up if needed.
