Happy Birthday to Rob and Dan!
(this combo birthday WOD rep scheme represents their youth):
Trivia: the deadlift was originally called the “health lift”.
Pairing these movements made going for a “run” a bit more challenging. The focus was on deadlifting heavy enough where form was not sacrificed. If you cannot maintain a flat back, weight on the heels, chest up, and shoulders back while ensuring the bar travels vertically in a straight line then back those bumpers off. Ensuring proper form will keep you safe, build overall strength and ready to deadlift another day!
