Year Long Workout: Phase VIII, Workout B

2A Deadlift

Sets: 2-3 Reps: 6-8 Tempo: 311 Rest: 90 Seconds

Stand over the bar with the same stance you would use to perform a jump. Keeping your lower back in its natural arch, crouch down and grab the bar overhand, your hands about shoulder-width apart. Your shoulders should be directly over or even a little behind the bar, and your eyes should be focused straight ahead [1]. Driving with your legs, straighten your hips and knees, pulling the bar to hip level as you come to a standing position [2]. Reverse the motion to return the bar to the floor. That's one rep.
