Last deadlift day of the cycle comin’ in hot. Don’t get too cocky with your weight because the volume adds up pretty quick. Last time I tried this I went for 405 and the weight was pretty devastating around rep 20.

Some Tabata intervals following the deadlifts. Remember that Tabata is executed on a running clock where you work continuously for 20 seconds, then rest 10 seconds. You’ll finish each Tabata at the 4 minute mark. Again, be conservative with your DB weight on the floor press because the volume stacks up pretty quick.

One note about the engine builder. I don’t want you wasting time between reps, but posture and position is king. Make sure we are in control of the weight through the full range of motion, otherwise we are just sweating without a purpose. Always assume a movement is done strict unless told otherwise (which will likely never happen).
