Work up to a strong effort set of four deadlifts. 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 progress through each set and as you increase in weight.
AMRAP in 10 Minutes
15 Deadlift 155/105 lb
5 Power clean 155/105 lb
Today’s workout is all about the barbell! You will have ten minutes to complete as many rounds of fifteen deadlifts and five power cleans as possible. The suggested load on the deadlift is fairly light but the rep count is high so break up those large sets early and often. The power clean is the more difficult movement of the two so determine your barbell weight based off of that lift. The best strategy for the cleans will likely be performing single repetitions with short rest.
