Here’s another post in the “Silent Ninja Workouts” series. This is a lift inspired by the Dead-Squat bar. It is meant to combine a deadlift with a squat. In this video, the deadlift is done with a 150lbs. GORUCK sandbag and a GR1 loaded with 100lbs. of plates. A Mystery Ranch Marshall pack is used for the squat, and it contains 155lbs. of sand and plates. Total weight for the lift is 405lbs., done for a 5×5 workout. It’s also a great exercise to practice maximum strength without waking up your family by throwing iron around or by wasting hours at the gym waiting for equipment.
Here are pictures of the load out. The video follows after the jump. I hope this starts a trend of busy folks lifting heavy things and putting them down again in creative ways!
