Impact/Focus: Deadlift 5 Rep Max
Warm-up as needed before working to establish a five rep maximum Back Squat.

Deadlift 5-5-5-5-5RM


  • Establish a five rep maximum Deadlift today.
  • Use one or more sets of five to establish the best five rep set possible for today.
  • Planning to warmup with weight jumps and sets of 1 has traditionally worked well for performance results on this particular format of training day (hhhhheavy fiver).
  • Back Squat, Press, and Deadlift will be trained across a classic strength cycle with one day allotted to each movement per week, building as we progress.
  • 20:00 total time cap, including warm-up. Athletes should have an abundance of Deadlift training data available.
  • One example for reference is as follows
  • 09.25.2020: Deadlift 5-5-3-3-3-3RM

“Gymnastic Strength Time Trial”
Against a 10:00 time cap complete one of the following options:
1. 90 x Pull-ups or Ring Rows + 90 x Static or Matador Dips
2. 60 x Pull-ups + 60 x Ring Dips
3. 30 x Ring Muscle-ups

Partition sets/reps as needed. Additional guidance where applicable will be a metronome approach for athletes working options 3. Complete 1 rep every :20 seconds for the ten minutes is a basic example of this training/Muscle-up challenge concept.
