6. The Deck Sumo Deadlift High Pull Workout

6 Rounds for Time

  • 10 Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls (75/55 lb)
  • 8 Kettlebell Deck Squats (35/18 lb)
  • 6 Bar Facing Burpees

For the kettlebell deck squats, make sure the kettlebell touches the ground behind the head before each rep. Perform the deck squat without the kettlebell to scale.

It is not very often you get a deck squat in a WOD. This is a tricky introduction to it encountering a different variant of squat under WOD conditions.

This workout features a low number or reps and relatively light weights. It’s intended as a fast workout, but pay attention to the kettlebell deck squats, as they’re likely to slow you down.

Pace yourself to a reasonably comfortable rhythm.
