1. Movement Prep/Activation and Increasing Heart Rate
Hip Halo Warm Up
3 sets:
5 Inch Worms
10 Suitcases
10 Iron Cross
10 Scorpions
5 Deadlifts (empty bar- build across sets)

2. Strength Prep
Athletes will be performing deadlifts at 85% for 5×2. Athletes should always view the deadlift as a push with the legs from the floor rather than a pull with the back. Doing so will allow athletes to recruit more of their lower body in this lift and be more efficient. Describe the deadlift as a standing leg press. The bar should start over the middle of the foot, and when going down for setup, athletes should bring their shins to the bar (not the bar to their shins). Eyes should stay on the horizon during the entire lift, specifically staying trained on an object that is at eye level when standing tall. The upper torso (shoulders, lats, and scaps) should be locked in before driving the bar from the floor through the entire lift. A mixed grip is acceptable but highly caution athletes to avoid accidentally pulling with the underhand grip arm because that is the most common way to pull a bicep tendon. Athletes should breathe with each rep and specifically focus on breathing in at the top of each rep due to the torso being the most open (as opposed to being compressed in the bottom of the deadlift).
