I had some interest for this in my training log and figured I’d extend this out to the greater forum.
Folks, I heard of a hellacious workout from Jon Andersen (recently featured here on an AMA) on a Matt Vincnet podcast.
Squat 405 for 20, drop the weight, turn around and deadlift it for 20.
I, NOT being Jon Andersen, adapted it. I train in my garage, typically in the early morning hours, and thus, won’t drop the bar to deadlift it. I also am not 300lbs of Deep Water, so I used 3 plates. This was my first attempt
My second time, I mixed it up by using an axle instead of a texas deadlift bar. This was because my next day’s workout was axle clean and press and I felt like being lazy and pre-loading the bar.
And this weekend, I made it even nuttier by throwing on the “Fran” WOD from crossfit, using kettlebells.
It’s a New Year. It’s time to transform. This is how you do it.
Lets all share our 20 rep squat and 20 rep deadlift workouts
