Heavy 5 @2111
Warm up to a single heavy set of 5 reps at tempo, slightly (5-10lbs) heavier than the 3x5s we did a few weeks ago. This should be done with no misses and perfect form. The goal is to build success at moving heavy weights with near perfect form, so this should not be a true 5RM.
B) Barbell Row (Pendlay Row):
2 x 9-12
As a ballpark guide, you might use about 30-40% of your heavy 5 Deadlift weight then increase load and/or reps week to week, but prioritize good movement overload.
Glen Pendlay explains the Pendlay Row: Notice that the barbel starts on the floor for each rep in these. There’s some momentum and speed off the floor yet Max’s back remains neutral and his torso remains near horizontal. If you can get into this position then perform them like this!
Barbell Row Demo: If lack of flexibility (most likely in the hamstrings) prevents you from maintaining a neutral spine with a horizontal torso and very little knee bend, then perform them like in this video. Note that the torso is still near horizontal and not “ratcheting up” with each rep. Due to grip fatigue you may have to use a lighter load for this variation.

No, you are not losing your mind: It WAS 10 rounds last night, not 7, and THANK YOU Brett and Lynsey for changing that! I was really dreading 100 snatches.
I was really feeling old and creaky and weak today. I wanted to deadlift 225 but ended up at 205, with rows at 63. That was PLENTY.
WOD with HPCs, otherwise Rx (the 7 AM and beyond Rx, not the 6 AM 10-round doozie!), 12:07. I haven’t lifted in the floor from a long time because Frankie’s still trying to iron out my bad habits from knee height. I didn’t want to erase everything we’ve been doing by doing 70 crappy reps from the floor.
