Workout: AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) in 15 minutes
10 reps of Deadlift (males 185lbs/ females 155lbs on barbell)
10 reps of Ring Dips
Deadlift: Proper Deadlift form starts with the weight on the floor, your back is in neutral position, yet muscles are engaged. Pull the barbell, lightly grazing against your body, until you’ve locked your hips and knees. Slowly return the barbell to the floor, all muscles are still engaged, by moving your hips back first and then bending at your knees. To Deadlift with proper form means with your lower back neutral position. Rounding your lower spine during heavy Deadlifts is dangerous for your back. It squeezes your spinal discs and can cause injuries like herniated discs. Deadlift with your lower back in the neutral position is best to avoid injury.
Ring Dips: Adjust the height of the rings so that your feet will not touch the ground between repetitions, making sure the rings are at even height. Mount the rings and assume the support position. You should be above the rings, arms straight, supporting your body weight. Lower your body down by bending at the elbows and keeping shoulders close to your sides. Keep the movement steady and controlled. If possible, continue down until your shoulders almost touch your hands for a full range of motion. Press your body back up to the original starting position, with all muscles engaged including your abdominals. Source: http://www.fitstream.com/exercises/ring-dips-a19
