15 Deadlifts (135/95#)
15 Push-ups
*1:30 cap every Round

"Ego Check" is a great example of the type of workout that can provide a very demanding training stimulus.  

By incorporating progressions and scaling, we are able to hold athletes to movement quality standards while preserving the intended training stimulus for the workout.

If we were to allow an athlete to perform this workout using movements, volume, and/or intensities that are not appropriate, then we have failed to uphold our professional duties.
