We did this with a partner, I was with Reanna. Ok, she’s a pusher. She doesn’t really give you an option, she just tells you this is what you are doing. I was a bit shocked when she thought I could do 45lb plates to start with…what??? The most I’ve ever done before is 45lbs total. You think I’m going to lift 125lbs to start with??? She was like yes, you’ll be fine.
Yep, she was right…I could do that.
Then she added 10lb plates. What?? Are you sure? She was like, yes you just did the other one fine.
Yep, she was right…I could do that.
She said, see you just had 100 lb PR.
Round 3 = total 150 lbs
Round 4 = total 150 lbs
Round 5 = total 165 lbs
I can’t believe I can actually deadlift that much.
Ok…I guess Reanna is the one I need for a partner…she just pushes without giving options. Sometimes it’s good to have someone do that for you.

Accessory Work
3 rounds
20/20 single arm staggered stance dumbbell row (25lb)
30 Russian twists (14 lb wall ball)

See you tomorrow!
