Lifting – Mon, Feb 6

Bell House Fitness – Lifting

02.06.23 (No Measure)


3 sets for load:

5 deadlifts

Tempo sets:

3 deadlifts

– :05 on the way up and :05 on the return.

– Use around 50% of your latest 1-rep max.


This week, we will decrease the reps and increase loading on the deadlifts.

All sets should be unbroken. Adjust the loading accordingly if the designated percentage won’t allow this.

Today’s goal is around 75-80% of your last previous 1-rep. If you can do more, go for it!

Try to increase the loading of the tempo sets from last week’s sets.

In Accessory – I, rest as needed and build to your heaviest set of 8. Increase load from last week.

In Accessory – II, use the heaviest sandbag or object possible that allows you to hold for the entire minute. This should be challenging. Hold at the top of a push-up or on your forearms for the plank hold.
