Note: build over the first four sets. The fourth set should be tough but submaximal, leaving one good rep in the tank. The fifth/sixth set is 10% lighter than the fourth. This is the second week of 3s, track your progress.

Strength Tip

Feet are in the athletic position, hip-width apart. Load your hamstrings before you engage the first pull. Athletes will lift the bar one inch off the ground for a 1-second pause then continue to lift the bar through the whole range of motion of a deadlift. Once the bar passes your knee, extend your hips forward and keep pulling the bar close to your body.
