Today's Beat-down


21 Deadlifts
50 Squats
21 Push press

15 Deadlift
50 Squats
15 Push press

9 Deadlift
50 Squats
9 Push press

For this workout, you get one bar and have to swap your weights between the deadlift and the push press.

For the deadlift, I choose what I felt was a good weight - not too light but not too heavy - 115#. But for some reason it felt unusually heavy today and I was not able to do but 1-4 in a row. For the push press, I used 65# which is pretty heavy for me, and I knew was going to be challenging - and it was! The workout took me 22:57 to complete! The deadlifts were just difficult today and I rested quite a bit. The push press was heavy, and I had a couple fails, and one 'jerk' that I had to redo. Ultimately, I just spent a lot of time standing around looking at the bar today. But that's okay - I need to work on my deadlifts and push press - and that's exactly what I got today.
