I’m a big fan of the Dorian Deadlift. Our major theme for the week is working within the eccentric portion of our lifts. The Dorian Deadlift is great for targeting the often neglected eccentric movement in the deadlift. Build to a heavy 5, but remember that technical competency is king. Your heavy 5 is only the most you can do while maintaining proper form.
On the push-ups chose a height that is challenging but you can hit all 6 reps for. We’re working on getting all of our movement videos recorded, but in the meantime you can find an example of the movement on YouTube.
The Engine Builder isn’t a long one, but it’s challenging. Sprint through it and aim for sub 5 minutes.

Hey guys, I'm Brian. I've been in the military around 11 years at this point in 11 and 18 series jobs. I started Modern Athlete Strength Solutions not just to give it the cool nickname of MASS, but to provide free strength and conditioning training to those that want to cut through the BS, not pay $100 for a generic program, and develop their athleticism through qualified S&C coaches. I am also the Executive Director at Operation RSF, a 501c3 non-profit that provides education and community initiatives on how fitness benefits mental health.
