WeRFit Workout: Dead Sprint

Whoever said ‘simple’ couldn’t be ‘painful’ has never done an AMRAP of deadlifts between one-mile runs.

AMRAP: Run, Deadlift, Run

  • Throw 135-lbs on the bar for men and 95-lbs on the bar for women.
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes.
  • Run a mile at a strong, steady pace before hitting the bar.
  • Set a steady pace and do as many deadlifts as you can with the remaining time.
  • Cash out by one more strong mile run.
  • Your score is how many reps out can get in, minus one rep for every second your last mile was slower than your first mile.
