Today’s set to failure is going to be in the deadlift. The deadlift is an inherently safe lift because if something goes wrong, you can simply drop the weight. This inherent safety sometimes leads to athletes increasing their risk by hanging on longer than they should. Make sure you’re lifting within the limits of your technique. If you start to contort your body into what seems like a scene from The Exorcist, it’s time to end the set.

Deadlift variation 20X1
3 sets of 6 reps to warm up to a tough set for 6 reps. Then…
6, 6, 6+ reps, 90-seconds rest between sets
*In this workout, you’ll perform 3 heavy sets of 6 reps. After each set, if you feel like you could have performed more than 2 additional reps, you’ll add weight. In the third and final set, you’ll perform as many reps as possible.

4 sets:
10 narrow stance heels elevated goblet squats @2020
60-seconds rest between sets
*Tempo reads 2-seconds down, 2-seconds up, with no pause at either the top or bottom. There should be continuous movement through the entire 10 rep set.

5 sets:
100′ per arm, single-arm farmers carry, 30-seconds rest
30-60 seconds plank with alternating reach, 30-seconds rest
