wanted to get in deadlifts AND do some conditioning. I figure peak hard on squats this weekend, and not go crazy on DLs. Therefore… EMOM! Hooray! (not)

warmup: none

Deadlift Warmup

135 x 5
185 x 4
225 x 3
275 x 2
315 x 1

Working Sets Deadlift: EMOM, belt, shoes

330 x 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

notes: that make sense? Every minute exactly on the minute, I did a single rep. Did that 9 times in a row, kept my belt on. Sweating by the end ! I had not done EMOM before, so this was a fun experiment.

Pause Deadlifts: EMOM, pause before I reach my knees, bely, shoes

330 x 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

notes: Once I got used to 330, I changed them to pause DLs, short pause right between the floor and my knees. Did that 6 more times. I was worried these would be too taxing, but they actually felt really good.

Low Bar Squats (60 sec rests, no belt, no sleeves, no shoes)

215 x 1
215 x 1
215 x 1

notes: did these as a cooldown, so no gear.
