Optimus Prime (AMRAP - Reps)
AMRAP 7: Wallballs (20/14) On the minute: 5 Deadlifts (225/155) "Optimus Prime" is a CompTrain Benchmark workout last completed on October 26, 2018 The workout starts on the wallballs At the top of every minute, complete 5 deadlifts before moving back to the ball Score is total wallballs Choose a weight on the deadlift you can go unbroken with Choose a wallball weight you can get 12+ unbroken reps each round Since the workout starts on the wallballs, the first minute will be the best chance to complete the biggest set of the day After the first round, shoot for 1-2 sets per minute Have a goal in mind going into the workout on how many reps or for how many seconds you want to hold on for With 45-50 seconds to work on the ball, this number is likely in the 12-24 rep range Go unbroken for the 5 deadlift reps and transition back to the ball quickly Make sure your barbell is relatively close to the medicine ball to ensure fast transitions "U" Not "I's" A small adjustment that makes a big difference on the wallball is placing the hands underneath the ball instead of on the outsides. This allows you to transfer more energy from the lower half into the throw. When the hands are outside, some of that power is lost in the transition from squat to press. The hands should look more like one "U" than two separate "I's".
