Tip of the Day
A lot of this workout is going to depend on how strong you are at Diane.  Because you have extra work to complete after the initial 21-15-9, you do not want to approach the first half like you are going to set a new PR (unless your Diane time is close to 9:00, then go for it).  If you know you are going to make it into the second half, pace the first half wisely so that you can get right on the bar for the first round of the heavier lifts.  Break up your deadlifts early to save your shoulders.
