3 Deadlifts (275/185 lb.)
6 Burpees Over Barbell
Partners perform 1 round each at a time.
AMRAP 10 min.
Yes, I know. We did a lot of burpees yesterday, but hear me out! These are a slight variation on yesterday’s, and the combination of heavy barbell and metabolic conditioning is going to be a blast :)
We have a classic push-pull couplet of Deadlifts and Burpees, except in this rendition, we’re going heavy on the Deadlift, and performing it with a partner. ;) In this AMRAP, partners go back and forth completing a full round of the workout (3+6), before switching to the other partner. It’s only a total of 9 reps per round, but will be challenging since the load is intended to be difficult.
In this couplet, there won’t necessarily be an element of teamwork, however, since you are switching back and forth and using the same barbell, you’ll have to stand around and cheer your teammate on! Ideally, you are sharing the same barbell. However, if there is a large discrepancy in weight, you can use two separate bars.
Burpees are performed laterally, not facing. This will make the Burpees more of a sprint stimulus, and make the rounds faster so you can go quicker each time. Shoot for 6-8 rounds each :)
