We got this question the other day “What is a good substitution for Sumo Deadlift High pulls (sdhp)?”
For Sumo Deadlift High Pulls:
If you don’t have a rower substitute sumo-dealift high pulls (sdhp) with 45 pounds for men and 30 pounds for women. Take the bar from mid shin to under your chin–“shin to chin.”
2K row = 200 sdhp’s, 1K row = 100 sdhp’s, 500 meter row = 50 sdhp’s
2K row = 200 sdlhp’s,
1K row = 100 sdlhp’s,
500 meter row = 50 sdlhp’s.
one burpee per 20 or 25 meters of rowing would be closer to equal amounts of work.
*sdlhp = sumo deadlift high pull with 45 lb barbell or two 35 lb dumbbells
Substitution for Swimming
go out and run or do a mix of bodyweight workout with pushups and flutter kicks.
