Deadlift 5RM

Coaches Notes: Today is a traditional heavy day with the focus on the king of all lifts, the deadlift. It should be noted that all deadlifts performed for strength should be done with a double overhand hook grip and a deadstop at the bottom. There are two reasons for this. First, the dead stop and double overhand hook grip will limit weight.  One of the primary purposes of a general strength and conditioning program is to progress athletes towards wellness without risk of injury. By finding ways to make the deadlift taxing we limit the risk of injury, which is imperative for the general population. The lack of mixed grip ensures athletes are building a balanced body, and also will have better carry over to the clean.

Score: Deadlift 5RM
