We're going into the weekend with a short, chipper-style workout.

The repetitions may seem high when you read this workout but you will only have to pass through them once. Here are some tips for this workout that hopefully will pay off for you...

  1. The deadlifts should be performed at a weight that you are capable of holding onto 20+ repetitions when fresh. If you're on the fence, lighter is always better.
  2. The row is the least important part of the workout. Going a couple seconds slower on your pace can pay off big time in terms of holding on for bigger sets of deadlifts.
  3. 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.
