Speed Deadlift

15 Rounds of 1 rep at 60% of your 5RM

Take 45 seconds rest after each rep

Post weight used to Comments/LogWOD

So, we set our 5RM last Friday (click here for a refresher).  Use 60% of that weight for these reps.  for the rest, as soon as you put the weight down, look at the clock.  Start 45 seconds later.  Repeat until you complete 15 rounds.
