Today is the last day of "Sled Dog" before we head into a new cycle.
We'll start off the day with a 2-part split jerk technique session.
This leads us into a fun twist on a popular benchmark workout in "Heavy Grace."
Finishing out the week and the cycle with "Dead & Company", a workout that includes a little bit of everything.

Tackling a heavy variation of a classic benchmark workout with "Heavy Grace"
While the weight is designed to be heavier than normal "Grace", it should be something that can be completed under 10 minutes (3 reps on the minute)
While the weight in normal "Grace" can be cycled for multiple reps, we are most definitely going singles from the beginning with "Heavy Grace"
Today's strategy is all about finding a sustainable pace between reps and avoiding any failures
This workout comes down to maintaining a similar pace from the first 10 reps to the last 10 reps
Use the clock or simply find a rhythm between reps that allows you to stay consistent across the 30 reps
Dead & Company (Time)
Buy-In: 1 Mile Run
Box Jump Overs (24"/20")
Toes to Bar
Cash-Out: 1 Mile Run
2000/1600 Meter Row
115/80 Calorie Assault Bike
We have a simple triplet workout sandwiched between a 1 mile run buy-in and cash-out
Complete a 1 mile run, then the full 21-15-9, then another mile run to finish things out
Choose a weight on the deadlift and toes to bar variation that you could complete the set of 21 unbroken when fresh
There is no need to stand to full extension on the box jump overs
