Coaching Tips: Be very careful about rounding the back on the dumbbell deadlifts! Hinge at the
hips and keep the back flat. Break up the sets before your form starts to degrade. Only one head
of the dumbbell needs to touch the floor each rep. No jerking the dumbbells, they need to be
push presses. Focus on the hip drive.


Optional ‘Cash Out’: Finish the round you were on, and then do one more not timed.
