Post Deadlift Loads and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the strength segment, the goal is to move the weight as quickly as possible for each attempt.  There should be no “grinding” of any reps.  If you cannot perform all of your reps at this speed then you need to use a lighter the band tension.  Red or blue bands are appropriate for most people.  Move the bar FAST! 

For the conditioning workout, use a Power Clean load around 65% 1RM.  For plyo pushups, you are pushing yourself up off the ground when your arms are fully extended (see video below). 

For the finisher, use a medium sized kettlebell and a red or blue band to perform a total of 100 banded KB Swings.  You do not need to swing any higher than your waist.
