20 Rep Deadlifts
A quick and easy strength workout to test every muscle in your body and build some mental fortitude.
I use this once a week at the moment, adding on weight each week until I come to a complete stop. Fortunately I have not hit that point yet, but judging by how hard the set today was, I may be close.
My progression so far:
Week 1: 100kg
Week 2: 110kg
Week 3: 120kg
Week 4: 130kg
Week 5: 140kg
This is a great way to build muscle endurance as well as improving your strength. It also will not drain your CNS as much as the weights are generally a lower percentage than when compared to regular strength programs.
How to do it:
Start off Week 1 at a weight that is about 40% of your estimated 1rm. Add on 5-10% depending on how you feel. Remember to go up gradually and keep good form!
