Coaching Tips: The deadlifts here should be at a pretty challenging weight. Smaller sets are a must, if you cannot maintain a good flat back. ‘Touch and go’s’ should only be performed if technique is on point. The burpees are just next to the bar (not jumping over). With the burpees, avoid hyper extending the lumbar when coming off of the ground, and having a totally rounded back when standing up (both are bad for your back)!
