Coaching Tips: Make sure you have a good plan for breaking up the deadlifts and the toes to bar from the beginning. This will be more of a challenge for the grip rather than the heart/lungs. Use a mixed grip on both the deadlifts and the toes to bar if you can. Smaller sets on both will be rewarded. Keep the bar close to the shins on the deadlifts, and be sure to point the toes on the toes to bar!
Optional ‘Cash Out’: none
