This is a sprint workout. Most athletes need to start slower than they might want to to maximize their score. We are building in speed and never slowing down. Within the final minutes... empty the tank! Barbell shouldn’t be too limiting in terms of loading but the overall volume of the hinging, speed of the workout, and the addition of the bar facing Burpee will make this workout very challenging.
The volume in this workout is very high...100 reps of Deadlifts and 100 reps of Bar Facing Burpees so pacing is critical. We seen the top athletes reach the half way point at ~4 minutes and they started to break up the deadlifts on the way back down through the rep scheme. This tells us it's very unlikely us mere mortals will finish this workout, and it's a good idea to start breaking up the deadlifts before we reach the 10's. Short, planned breaks are always better than forced breaks.
This workout will blow people up in the back and the lungs so the goal should be staying safe and being smart. Check out movements tips from our Senior Coach Eoin Donnelly below to bring your best performance to Friday Night Lights.
Best of luck, and we look forward to seeing you on the leaderboard!
