Taking on the 45 lb straight bar

The standard 45 pound straight bar.  We are both friends…..and enemies.  I have spent much of the last year only using it connected into the landmine attachment, but secretly I have been want to take it back on with deadlifts, squats and all those fun olympic lifts.

Yesterday as part of my workout, I finally got the nerve to begin working back through some different movements with it.  The end result was this great combo that got my heart rate up and left me feeling super sore today in an awesome way!

I bring you the Overhead Carry Deadlift Front Loaded Squat combo…….enjoy all that it entails!

  • Overhead Bar Carry: 30sec
  • Deadlift: 12 reps
  • Front Squat: 12 reps

Repeat 5 times!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
