  • 3 Rounds of ‘Cindy’
  • 15 Deadlifts (275/185 lb)
  • 2 Rounds of ‘Cindy’
  • 20 Deadlifts (275/185 lb)
  • 1 Round of ‘Cindy’

1 Round of ‘Cindy’ consists of: 5 Pull-Ups, 10 Push-Ups, and 15 Air Squats

The rounds of Cincy can easily be scaled down to banded pull ups or ring rows – make sure you keep the movements strict. Use an elevated surface to scale the push ups.

This is a tough workout, so make sure you do specific deadlift and pull/pushing warmup. The main areas of your body worked in the Deadlift Strict Cindy workout are the back, legs, arms, and shoulders.

Deadlift setup with varying body types

The starting position of a deadlift will look different in every person, which doesn’t mean some are wrong. The technically correct starting position will vary according to each athlete’s body type (arm, torso and leg length).
