Deadlift 7 sets of 3 reps each.
Post loads to comments.
Team 6 caught red-handed standing around doing nothing.

I'm still new here, with Wed being my second WOD. How much weight do we deadlift in order to make use of the 3 reps?
Good job Julia! You can do more chin ups than most adults I know. I bet your mom and dad are real proud of you. I can't wait to see how many you can do when you are five!
CB, you decide the weights.
245# (my bodyweight)
I probably should have added another 10-20.
Have a good day all.
which deadlift is it? straight back, straight leg or sumo?
Thanks for all the feedback about Julia. I can't put into words how excited she gets when I read to her the comments. She really thrives on the recognition.
Tell Julie she is one big tough girl!!
CB - pick as heavy a load as you can handle for 3 reps and if you can't sustain it for all 7 sets, then decrease the load as you deterioate.
Emil - for functionality benefit and as prep for a big clean, coach Glassman suggests regular, feet shoulder-width apart, not sumo. I stick with the clean/pararell grip to, to keep it pure.
We usually do the narrow stance straight back version but any of the options are good.
start off light and work up to a challenging 3rep load. Then try to keep this load for the total number of sets.
Used a trap bar today. It's easier on my knees but the pull isn't as strong as a straight bar. My abs get a noticeable workout since the bar can't stabilize against my legs.
Time to work on that clapping pullup!
Ryan, send more pictures of Julia's workouts! Too cool!
First let me just say this: Julia, that is awesome. Everyone in my office was stunned. As for the WOD...it has been too long since I last did dread lifts. So I took this opportunity to see what I could do. 135, 185, 225, 275, 315 (couldn't move it) dropped to 295, 300 did 2 then a minute later did the third one, last set 305 one every 30 sec.
Kelly that is fabulous. Twice your weight for such a series. It will be another lifetime before I get where you are, I think.
315 for all sets. Double overhand grip, bodyweight 225. Still aching from the previous days WOD. Looking forward to the rest day.
Used Parallel Grip.
I'm really happy with this because my current max is 300. Obviously what I thought was my max is not. That's what I love about CrossFit. Instead of the typical weight lifting routing...slowly adding weight week after week, month after month...boring...you don't what your max might be.
Tony - good work after a long layoff on the deadlifts.
First time in a few years doing deadlift. Felt real good.
You should be proud! She's a little tiger cub.
225, 275 + 5 at 315
First WOD in 4 weeks (heck, it's only my 3rd workout of any kind in 4 weeks)
Great lifts...what are you weighing these days?
135, 205,255,295,305,315,315 Ran out or Iron in the garage! Off to buy some more 45's today. Fun to slow down the WOD. David
This week has done a number on the forearms. This WOD was a good one. 275x7.
235-255-275-285-295-310-325. Had a great time doing these.
I've actually lost a little weight while not working out . . . I was 157 this morning, where I used to hover around 159-160. Unfortunately, I can be pretty sure it's not fat loss . . . my pants are tighter than they used to be, and at my age, that is NOT a pretty sight . . .
It's great to see you posting again! Good workout!
Body Weight: 205
I've been doing your workouts for a couple of weeks now and am very impressed. Also very humbled by the intensity that is required.
I changed this up slightly and did clean pulls for 9 triples, over 3 waves. All bar the last set were pulled high enough to get under:
Wave 1 3x120kg, 3x130kg, 3x140kg
Wave 2 3x125kg, 3x135kg, 3x145kg
Wave 3 3x130kg, 3x140kg, 3x150kg
I finished off with 5 sets of chins and 5 handstand holds.
Nice workout, Keith.
For some reason I cant do regular deadlifts,either my arms are to short and my legs are too long or maybe Im not flexible enough... Who knows, the only way I can deadlift without destroying my lower back is the sumo way. Or any way with my arms inside my legs. Could someone explain this to me?
Did this WOD on friday. Used 315 @ BW of 215. Did 5 sets of 3, realized 315 was a little too heavy. Finished last 6 reps as singles with the 315. Still sore today. Haven't deadlifted in almost 2 years.
