Explosive Power!


5 DeadLifts
10 Squat Thrusts

5 rounds

Having that explosive off the line power is important. The deadlift is a move that trains this one rep power quite effectively. The powerful opening of the hip at the "top" of the deadlift, trains the entire hip area, including the hamstrings, glutes, & adductors.

It's also incredibly functional. When you pick up anything, ANYTHING, you should be deadlifting it. Watch a child under 3, they do. They're bodies are using the most efficient way t0 pick up something heavy. We'll do some really good work on the dealift today, before doing the WOD.

Love the deadlift, it is your friend.
