Deadlift
1-1-1-1-1

Work up to a heavy single deadlift today.  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 increase in weight.  Warm up with multiple reps as you build in weight and when the bar starts to feel heavy drop to singles until you’ve hit your max for the day

21-15-9
Deadlift 225/155 lb
Burpee

Workout notes: This deadlift should be fairly light compared to your max but moderately challenging when fatigued.  Consider a weight that is below 50-60% of your true one rep max and think about the total number of reps when choosing your weight.  The toughest but fastest burpee standard is going to be sending both feet back while going down and then forward at the same time prior to jumping.  You can easily moderate the difficulty by stepping forward and/or backward and eliminating the jump at the end of each rep.  Scale to a sustainable standard that allows you to keep moving through all three rounds.
