Coaching Tips: The deadlift weight should be approximately 65-75% of your max. Some a set of 10 unbroken should be possible, but consider breaking this one up from the beginning so you can do larger sets (or faster singles) in the later rounds. Make sure you take time to ‘get organized’ before each set. You do not want to have a soft midline because you are breathing too hard to get tight!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 12 burpees, 200m run, 3 rounds OR 3 sets of 8-12 ring dips super set with 10-14 loaded ‘Jones Squats’
