Here is something I did on my last workout that I thought would make a nifty challenge
100 reps of 225lbs on deadlift. Unlike that stupid challenge that happened a while back, I’m not going to make a bunch of rules and tell people how to deadlift, but lemme lay out what I did and you can go from there.
I found it crucial to burnout on the first set, as this allows for a few different ways to evaluate progress with repeated attempts. I hit 41 reps in the first set, rest paused to 50 with a set of 5 and a set of 4, and then took 1 minute rests to get out the last 50 reps. I think turning it into a controlled EMOM style workout would make it faster and less fatiguing but, in turn, less challenging.
I pulled touch and go. With straps and a belt. I’m sure that upset a lot of people, haha.
Total time was right at 14:30. Looking at it now, I’m pretty certain I could shave off time on those 1 minute rests and still make it through, and I had a few more reps in those earlier 10 rep sets.
Go ahead and give it a try under your own conditions and see what you come up with.
