Texas Cardio, v 2.0

Filed under: General — Tags: — Michael @ 21:16

At the Academy this morning, the workout was called “Texas Cardio V.2“.

  • The summary: 210 deadlifts at 175 pounds.
  • The details: Load a barbell up to half of your single-lift maximum. Start a clock. Before the end of the first minute, do one deadlift. In the second minute, do two more deadlifts. In the third minute, three of them. Continue until failing to make the proper number of lifts in a given minute or until form is on the verge of being unsafe.

I made it through 15 rounds (and 15 minutes), but in the 16-minute round, I was able to lift only four times, and then I was too fatigued to continue safely.
