Work Out #3 (Hold On)

At the start of the clock, 1 athlete will perform 10 burpees then carry weights to the barbell. That athlete may start performing max deadlifts during the 4:30 work period of time. You can switch partners at any time during the work period but the athlete must come back to the starting line, tag that new athlete in and that athlete must perform 10 burpees before advancing to the barbell. This can happen as many times as necessary of the 4:30 work period.

During the :30 rest period both athletes will return to the starting line.

RX Men weights 95, 145, 195, 245 lb = these are 50 lb weight jumps
RX women, both scaled divisions and masters 75, 105, 135, 165 lb = these are 30 lb weight jumps
