WOD Brief

Today is simple. We will work on activating our muscles, getting warm, move in through great positions for the deadlift and then setup for today’s training. The workout is comprised of three parts. There is no rest between each grouping. The intent is that we will begin with a moderately heavy weight and in each block, increase the weight of the deadlift.

The finish weight should be something you can do doubles to singles on – it’ll be hard, that is OK.

The WOD will flow like this …

One big row for 1,500 meters. Then 20 deadlifts and 40 ab mat situps. These deadlifts should be something you can handle in 2-3 max sets. From here we will move straight into the next row.

Now we row only a 1,000m to get started. We then complete 2 rounds of a heavier deadlift and 20 abmat situps. Heavier means small sets, but lets keep an eye on that rest and then smash those situps in a furry.

Again … we’ll wrap these up and move to the final block of work.

Row 500m, and then complete 5 rounds of the heaviest deadlifts and a small handful of situps. The goal here is just consistent. We want to try and maintain a good heart rate, nice strong breathing, and excellent technique.

If you wear a belt, keep an eye on it during the situps .. it could get a bit uncomfortable ;).
