Rest 2:00 between rounds.

On the single legged dumbbell deadlifts, we are holding two dumbbells. Allow the free leg to rise behind us as we descend into the negative, and move slowly with precision. Balance is an variable here. The dumbbells do not need to touch the ground, and for most athletes, they shouldn’t in order to maintain sound positioning with our back. Complete all 10 repetitions on one side, and then switch.

Lastly, on the hip extensions, hold a plate across the chest, with loads varying from 15# to 45# for stronger athletes. These are not intended to be exceedingly heavy, but rather more of a "repetition weight". Challenging, but never close to failure or even loss of form.
