“Belt Buckle” For Time: 1,000 Meter Row 30 Deadlifts (225/155) 50 Lateral Barbell Burpees L2 Sub Burpees L1 500 M Row 20 DL or KB DL 30 Burpees
While all three movements are impactful in their own way, the row is the least important part of the workout. Going a couple seconds slower on your pace per 500 can pay off big time in terms of holding on for bigger sets of deadlifts. Based on how confident athletes are with their deadlift, going 5-10 seconds slower than their pace per 500 of their best 2k row will set them up nicely for the next movement. Once at the barbell, the proper sets will be athlete specific. 15-15, 12-10-8, 10-8-7-5, or 5 sets of 6 are just a few of the many options. No matter the breakup plan, the goal is to minimize rest between. Finishing out with the burpees, the pace is less important than not stopping. Just like in running, take it one step at a time and try to keep moving without a break for all 50 reps, even if that means going slower from the beginning.
