The deficit deadlift is a conventional deadlift performed while standing on a small block or a couple of plates. Its purpose is the increase the range of motion, making the lift much harder from the pick up, through the transition, and all the way up to the lock out. By doing this the body is overloaded and forced to adapt to this new, tougher height, increasing strength and making standard deadlifts feel much easier.
Every minute on the minute for 8 minutes do:
2 Deadlifts (AHAP)
5 rounds for time:
7 Deadlifts to 2″ deficit w/hand release (255/175)
14 Toes to bar
21 Double Unders
Comfort zones are plush lined coffins. When you stay in your plush lined coffins, you die.
