Summer fun.

Every 4:00 for 5 sets
35ft Dumbbell walking lunge (front rack hold)
3 Deadlifts

**Score the weight on the heaviest set of 3 deadlifts.

3 Rounds, NOT for time:
10-15 GHD hip extensions
20 Abmat sit-ups

*Add a load on the GHD hip extensions if this rep scheme is easy to perform and athlete has capacity, with load do not allow deviation of form.

Increase loading each set. Loads on both movements should be near maximal by the 3rd or 4th sets. The athlete should perform the lunges and then immediately perform the 3 deadlifts. Due to the fatigue accumulated from the lunges, the deadlifts will not be as high as a typical 3 rep max.
