Deadlifts
3 x 5

With the arrival of the new bumper plates we are finally able to add weight to the barbells we have and the bars won't be on the floor. Students were instructed to get into groups of three with people of similar strength. For the most part this worked out well. All eight groups lifted at the same time so it was easy to manage. After each round and all three students lifted they had the opportunity to add weight to the bar for the next round. Some chose to stick with what they had and others added more. One group did manage to make a large jump in weight on the third round as I thought they were taking off two 10's and adding 25's. Instead they added 35's but there wasn't any degradation of form.
