Leveling Up

Jenna Buckle | 09/18/2019 | 4

Mark in “beast mode” on the deadlift.

Today’s workout has us lifting a heavy bar off the ground (deadlifts) and moving our bodyweight through space (pull-ups and push-ups). But here’s the twist: there are two parts to this workout. After completing the first two rounds, you’ll add weight to the deadlift and progress to a more challenging pull-up and push-up variation. The rep count for each movement decreases from 15 to 10, but the difficulty increases.

Think of the first two rounds as your “Level 1” and the second two rounds as your “Level 2.” Your “Level 1” should be hard but something you’re confident you can tackle. Your “Level 2” should take it up a notch and push at the boundaries of your comfort zone. Your coach will spend time helping you strategize on what this means for you!


For Time:

2 rounds:
15 deadlifts (185/135)
15 chin-over-bar pull-ups
15 push-upsĀ 

Directly into 2 rounds:
10 deadlifts (225/155)
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups
10 hand-release push-ups
