“Linda”

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 1 1/2 body weight
Bench press: body weight
Clean: 3/4 body weight 

Set up three bars and storm through for time.

Linda is not a partner workout, but it would make the deadlifts more fun. Here Molly and Khem partner down on a hero workout from last month.

There are a number of different ways to scale a workout and we exercise all of them throughout a week. We can scale loads, rounds, weights, and movement range of motion – to name a few. In today’s workout, the workout specifically says “storm through for time.” For many, independent of if you scale the workout or not, what results does not reflect “storming through.”

So for today, we’ve lowered the weight considerably for this workout and will work off of a percentage of max lift to figure out the loading for each lift. On average, the loads will be less than what is listed above or what we would have realized if we had scaled based on the bodyweight specifications.

When you’re loading up the bar today, just keep thinking – am I going to storm through this with this load on the bar?
