Make sure you are nice and warm and your hips and core are primed to lift some heavy weights.
If this is your first time attempting a max for this exercise, start with a reasonable weight that you know you can lift, and increase the weight by 5-10lbs with each attempt. Rest 2-3’ between each successful attempt.
Don’t be an idiot – ie. know when to stop. If you don’t have bumper plates and can’t toss the weight off your back safely, use a spotter, or perform in a power rack with safety rails so you don’t start your week off with a spinal cord injury – because that would suck.
Message me for modifications if you have an injury.
