-The strength work for today is to help us prepare for the loads and movements of today’s Hero WOD. You should be able to work up a good
amount above the weight you plan to do in the WOD.
-“DT” is one of our favorite benchmark workouts, and is a great way to test your strength, stamina, and efficiency with the barbell. For most
athletes, the hang power cleans or the push jerks are the limiting factor, so choose a weight based on which movement is weakest for you. While
you may choose to break up your sets more, you should go into the workout feeling like you could do each movement unbroken for the first few
rounds. The weight on the deadlifts should be light for most athletes so don’t worry about this when choosing your weight for today. Pace this
one early, and save your grip. Use a mixed grip for the deadlifts and break up your hang cleans enough so your forearms don’t blow up too early.
