Our first casualty of the gym. The busted 10lb bumper. If it's ever between your safety or the equipment, you always win.

WOD5 Rounds5 Deadlift (315/205)20 Box JumpsIf you need a recovery day take it. You can always do a workout scaled down with lighter loads or rounds and work on technique. How important are rest days to you and your performance? How many hours of sleep do you get a night and how many do you wish you could have?
