**We hit the heavy 2 last Tuesday for deadlifts, and if you follow the rotation of the strength workouts, you would’ve seen it coming as the first strength workout of this week. Heads up, though, as we’ll take a break from deadlifts next week, before they are back on the schedule again as part of our double strength day April 26th, and again the week of May 6th.
With both the strength work and barbell work in the main workout, I want to remind everyone about our new ‘no drop’ policy that was put into place last Friday. Yes, that includes strength movements. Yes, that includes deadlifts. Yes, that includes the hang, shoulders, and overhead. This link demonstrates how to do it for Olympic movements, but there is carryover for *any* barbell movement. The deadlift weight for the workout is light, but might be on the heavier side for the jerks for many. If scaling needs to be done, base it off of what you can put overhead. Err on the side of going lighter so you can go faster in the workout overall. Remember, the focus is on the strength today (and always). The jerks shouldn’t take more than 2-3 sets.
