WOD:

20 Air Squats
15 Deadlifts (135/95lbs)
10 Push Press (135/95lbs)
5 Rounds

This workout has a similar stimulus to yesterday, so people might find it hard to ‘push’ two days in a row. Give yourself a little mental pep talk!  Life may demand that you do similar things 2 days in a row!

Beyond Rxd and Rxd: The Air Squats won’t take long, but they will be enough after a few rounds to make you breathe hard going into the Deadlifts and Push Presses. The workout is really about the Push Press. The weight is set light for the Deadlifts and moderate for the Push Press. The Push Presses are not intended to be done unbroken, but some people might be able to for a few rounds.

Fitness: To reduce the amount of fatigue and potential soreness, we have decreased the reps. It is still a good amount for you to hit it hard and move through the workout fast and unbroken. Use a load that is light for the Deadlift and slightly challenging for the Push Press. One that you can do all 5 reps unbroken. Feel free to add a round for those of you who need more.
