*Women’s “Performance” weights and reps (Rx)

Scaling Guide: 8 – 16 minutes.

Scale up deadlifts to 275/185lbs for an extra challenge.
Coaching Tips:

Be smart about the deadlifts.

If the weight seems daunting or your back is not 100%, be aggressive about scaling back the deadlifts.

That being said, keep in mind that each round you’ll be coming back to the barbell with a 1 minute rest, so it isn’t the same as hitting the deadlifts immediately after the box jumps.

Kip early on the ring dips and go fast on the box jumps!
