PAX paired off. YHC asked for a volunteer to demonstrate the newly created Dirk-Lift!

The Dirk-Lift: A combination of a Derkin and a Dead Lift. PAX 1 gets into the merkin position, then PAX 2 grabs his legs so he is in a wheelbarrow position. PAX 1 completes a derkin, then PAX 2 completes a dead lift holding PAX 1 legs. Repeat as directed by Q, switch positions and repeat.
