Boost Your Leg Work (W IV)

NOTE: Perform the exercises marked with letters (a, b, etc.) in succession, resting as needed between sets until you've completed one set for each in the series. Repeat until you've done all the prescribed reps.

1 Deadlift

Reps: Work up to a 3-rep max

Stand with your feet about hip-width apart, your toes facing straight ahead. Squat down and grab the bar with an outside-shoulder-width, palms-down grip. Keep your lower back in its natural arch and drive your heels into the floor. Push your hips forward, lifting the bar as you rise until it's in front of your thighs. Perform several low-rep warm-up sets until you find a load that allows you only three perfect reps.
