Check out these top tips from Ben at WODprep.

“We’ve seen this before. The HSPU standards are challenging, and the deadlifts – for some of us – will get heavy. Here’s what I recommended for 18.4…”

CrossFit 20.3 – The Deadlifts

I will have some fresh strategy this year on top of what I’ve already advised for 18.4. If 225/155 lbs is heavy for you… there’s nothing wrong with starting with singles.

It may sound silly, but this is actually going to eliminate a ton of wasted energy that you use to lower the barbell. 

If 225/155 lbs is fairly easy for you – but the following weights of 315/205 lbs is heavy… then move to singles in round two. 

Next tip – wear a lifting belt for 20.3.

FOR SCALED AND/OR  MASTERS ATHLETES

Something to note on Hand Release Push-ups – be sure to read the standards. While it doesn’t specify feet staying on the ground, there is no pushing up through the knees.
