Test Point: mid ankle

Deadlift
Pretest point: low ankle
time: 8 min
weight: 60lbs

Row
Pretest point: top of foot
Time: 8 min

Press
Pretest point: top of toe
Time: 8 min
Unilateral: Y
Weight: 40lbs

Notes: tested the 60lb but there is a lot of tension throughout my body when I try to skip that high. With 40lbs I hit excess tension and some muscle fatigue at 30 reps. At that point it became more of a kettlebell style clean and press with one rep to each side.

Reps: 147
Posttest point: tops of toes

I’ve never done so many lunges and I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow.
