Kristen M. has signed up for the Tactical Strength Challenge which involves testing a max deadlift, max pull ups, and snatches. Sheena and Grayson already had plans to incorporate deadlifting into kettlebell programming but what better way to do deadlifts to help support Kristen as she trains!

Don’t worry, we’ll still have a lot of kettlebell work in. We’d like you to know that we will be going through a 12-week deadlift cycle.

– Simple & Sinister , then
– Establish a 1 rep max deadlift on week 1, day 1
– Deadlift 1×10 @85-95% of 1rm
