Skill and Build Up
Deadlift Progression (~5:00)
(3 Step)
*With an empty barbell, complete 2 rounds of:
5 From top, to the knees and stand
5 From top, to knees, to shins, to knees, and stand
5 Deadlift

5 Deadlifts, light load
5 Beat swings

5 Straight leg sit-ups (reach past toes)
3 Deadlifts, moderate load
3 Hanging knees raises
3 Deadlifts, moderate to heavy load
3 Toes to bar
3 Deadlifts, at or slightly below intended workout weight for the day. RX = (315lbs/205lbs).

Metcon (Time)
7 Rounds for time
5 Deadlifts (315lbs/205lbs)
10 Toes to bar

This workout is very demanding on the trunk and grip. The load on the deadlift should be heavy but allow for 5 reps to be completed unbroken on at least the first 3 rounds. This is a workout where athletes can lift heavier than the prescribed weight if all sets will easily be completed unbroken. The toes to bar volume is relatively high but should allow for multiple sets to be completed unbroken. Faster times for this workout could be under 7:00 while all athletes should strive for completion in under 14:00.

Movement Modifications
*Decrease or increase loads to hit the intended stimulus.

Toes to Bar
*Perform a hanging knee raise or a lying toes to barbell.
*Reduce reps if each set of 10 will not be unbroken. Consider 7 reps. Or splitting the difference 5 toes to bar and 5 hanging knee raises each round to get the stimulus needed for the toes to bar.

Dumbbells or Kettlebells
7 Rounds for time
10-15 Dumbbell or kettlebell deadlifts
15 V-ups

This assumes that the dumbbells are moderately loaded. Adjust reps as needed based on loads available.

Bodyweight Only
7 Rounds for time
15 Supermans on floor
15 Glute bridges
15 V-ups

Accessory Work
3 Rounds NOT for time
20 Good mornings
0:30/0:30 Pigeon stretch

The goal is to increase recovery. Use any object for the good mornings: barbell, dumbbell, band, bag, etc. Keep the loading light and move through the 20 reps at a relatively quick pace.
