Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 reps

Warm up with light deadlifts, starting with the bar, then addind up to 1/2 to 3/4 bodyweight.

Perform 3 lifts at each weight, increasing the weight each set to approach for 3 rep maximum. Rest as needed between sets, 2-3 minutes is normal. Do not skip or shorten the rest period. Drop back in weight if you hit failure in a set.

Example: If your first set is 175, followed by a set of 195, then 215, then 235, then you fail on your 3 lift of 245, drop back to 235, then either retry 245, up to 240 or stick with 235. You would record this as:



If you do not have proper DL form for going heavy:

100 pullups
200 pushups

Break into as many sets as needed for each.

Using all the weight I have available:


I did an extra set since I can't go any heavier at my facility.

I mixed in 50 pull-ups and 50 push-ups as well.
