What is the weight we're supposed to use?

Kris,

Work up to whatever is your one rep maximum.

Yes, Sir !!! I have been waiting for this one for a while now... I feel like a PR !

What is a PR?

I think I should probably do some cardio with this, or work on some Pull-ups, or something.

Hi Kris,

PR stands for personal record.

PR= personal record. And for the record, you probably won't want to do anything else with this workout. It's a doozy! :)

Well, here's my results :

All weight in kg:

3x100,2x102,2x104 (at this point I started to use a mixed grip), 2x106,1x110 (my old PR),1x112,1x114,1x116,1x120: I beat my previous PR by 10kg or 22 pounds, without any deadlift specific practice other than what was described in the WOD's and in the March 2004 CF Journal (the beginner routine). All this with a little less than a month using CrossFit !!!

Thank you CrossFit and more specifically Greg and Lauren for the effort you put have put into this from the start !

I gotta agree with David Easton, when he posted the following yesterday: "CrossFit Rocks" !!!

Oh yes, forgot to add that by the time I reached 120kg I didn't have any plates left to put on the bar, so I could have gotten even more! But I'll take what I got for now ;-)

Better go buy some new plates...

Hi all, does anyone have any suggestions for mods to todays WOD if you are short of weight?? No - I am not that strong, it takes all the plates, right down to 1.25kg, that we have to do Diane properly.

Was thinking of giving one armed DL a go but not sure how feasible this is with larger loads. Alternatively, guess I could try straight-leg deads. Anyone have any thoughts??

thanks in advance, kempie

You could up the reps on the DL or do another, fundamental, lift like the squat (front/back/OH), clean (power/squat), etc. Just some ideas.

-D.

62kg x 10 warmup (136.4lbs)

102kg x 3 (224.4lbs)

142kg x 2 (312.4lbs)

142kg x 2 (312.4lbs)

152kg x 1 (334.4lbs)

162kg x 1 (356.4lbs)

167kg x 1 (367.4lbs)

(ran out of room on the bar and was about out of grip...wrist wraps next time!!)

Great WOD!

Does it matter using sumo version or not?

Cheers Dan, thought about upping the reps but can manage this weight through Diane pretty much unbroken. Want a little more strength emphasis. Also thought about doing some of the clean/ jerk/ OHS etc complexes people have talked about on the board. Hitting it one way or the other this evening, might do a bit of each.

Once again, thanks mate.

kempie

'Course, there is that Lunge-Lunge-Thruster-Lunge WOD...

This one felt really good, I didn't hurt my back like the first time I tried this one.

Can a trap bar used for deads in this WOD?

Is there a specific time one should wait between lifts, or just when you are ready to go and have loaded the next plate?

HOLY SH*T, MIKE!!

congratulations on 2 x bwt DL!

YES!

Joe,

Take your time. This is a strength day. Make sure your rested and your form is there. Days like today are to see how much progress you have made.

Good luck!

I don't have the form for the deadlift yet, can you recommend another strengthening exercise?

As Rx'd

225, 275, 295, 305, 315, 325, 335, 345, 350 (failure)

Crap, I want to go for it today but I still have this nagging muscle pull in my back... something that is impacted by taking in a breath because I haven't been able to take in a completely full breath for a week now. I'm close and it's gotten much better as I've tried to work around it. I was concerned about yesterday's p/u's but that wasn't really a problem. Hope, when I start pulling today, it won't be today either. I hate those little inconvenient owies!

Sorry for taking up space with my whining... :-(

160*3

200*2

210*2

220*1

Again, the distinct pleasure of having another CrossFitter to work out with.

1 x 335

Finished with OHS (Erik up to 135 for reps, Dave not so good) and half-Tabata (4 rounds) of 65-lb push press (Dave min=10, Erik min=15).

Jordana:

Any "leg" exercise would be appropriate substitution . . . squats or front squats (even better) at whatever weight you can handle, walking lunges, etc.

But, you should also work the DL with as little weight as necessary to get the correct form . . . a broomstick, if necessary. Standard form recommendations: Butt back, chin forward, back long and flat, use hip drive much more than quadriceps, and drive through your heels.

Good luck!

BradMM -

Sounds like you might have a rib out. I got that after trying to move (bridge) a guy off my chest during jiu-jitsu. It hurt to sneeze, cough, and breath.

Just in case people missed it above: Kelly Moore is VERY close to pulling 3 x bw in this lift.

Go, Kelly!

davidjwood,

thank you very much for the advice, & form!!

much appreciated!

Jordana

i think a new "character" needs to be created to join pukie... perhaps hernie (the hernia)

Quick question. Being in the Military I do my workouts in the morning with nothing in my gut, do dry heaves qualify me for a Pukie shirt or do I need to eat something one morning to validate it. Thanks.

Tony

With a little ingenuity managed to get past my weight limitations mentioned earlier. Was able to lash pairs of fixed dumbbells to either end of the bar with some skipping ropes laying around. Only downside is that they didn't hit the ground evenly so multi-rep sets were impossible once I got to the 9 & 10kg dbs. Anyways, on with the show:

5 * 95kg (~209lb)

3 * 113kg (~249lb)

1 * 131kg (~288lb)

1 * 131kg

1 * 131kg

1 * 131kg

1 * 136kg (~299lb)(found 4 * 1.25kg plates laying about. No more room on the bar now)

Pretty happy as these are the first heavy deads I have ever done and getting 1.6 * bw (85kg) is a nice first step. With better grip strength and a little more practice, I am thinking 2 * bw might fall by the end of the year.

Cheers, kempie

maxed at 245lbs (BW 185). Form was lacking so I went back down to 180 and worked more on keeping the back straight and lifting with the legs.

i just realized i got 3 PRs in the last 3 days...CrossFit ROCKS!! thanks, Coach, Lauren, and everyone who contributes in any way.

Diddy,

You rock mate, well played on the PR's!

Keep on smashing 'em up...

I PULLED NAKED FOR THE FIRST TIME!

... no gloves, that is! :-)

I went to a different gym because I knew they had Oly lift stations set up and I wanted to be prepared for when they show up on a WOD. Of course, NO ONE uses gloves in a REAL gym!

Here were my numbers (in kg) as rx'd:

3x 60

2x 90

2x 110

2x 110

1x 120

1x 120

1x 120

1x 110

1x 120

The no gloves thing didn't work out so well. My numbers were down. After about my 2nd 120, I realized that it's not such a good idea to wear your wedding ring while lifting this way. I did use chalk but that only helped my grip, not the cutting into my finger.

PLUS, just adjusting to a different setting threw my numbers off today. That had something to do with my second to last lift going down. Somebody had something goofy like England Dan and John Ford Coley playing. I tried to go up another notch but couldn't get pumped. I had to break off to go get my LED ZEPPELIN! I did the next lift at 110 just to get my confidence back and finished with the 120. The bumper weights LOOK a lot bigger, too, so that didn't help. I'll get used to it but I think I'll keep my gloves. It may seem weird but I truly don't like taking my wedding ring off for any reason.

Ooooops, forgot to say that my BW = 206 lbs... and my normal PR (actual) = 315 lbs, calculated = 340. There's a huge MENTAL aspect to these lifts, at least for me!

I'm having a problem signing on to the message boards so...

Question - Are Dead Lifts "okay" with a medial meniscus tear in one knee?

Note to self

2 days is not enough time to recover after the kind of day I had saturday.

Did "Fran" today, will do deadlifts tomorrow.

A new PR for me of 6:40.

But it came at a cost. :)

I knew I was in trouble when I was having trouble getting through the warm-up.

My weight post workout is around the 249-250 mark.

This probably doesnt get said much around crossfit, but I hope I don't lose any more weight.

My Brother did "Fran" with me. His first time,

7:40

Great job on the PR's Eric!

Steve and Karl,

thanks, guys...im definitely pumped.

Matt G,

where you at?!?

I guess it's safe to assume that the pull-ups have helped pay off in the deadlift arena.

Anwyway, here are my results.

All weights are in pounds.

BW = 189

3x185 (this was too easy)

2x225 (easy again)

2x275 (felt good)

2x295 (good)

1x315 (I knew I could do more)

1x335 (YEAH BABY!)

Tried 355 (NOT SO GOOD).

1x335 (Good, but form was a little bit lacking. I paused in the middle of the lift).

[at this point, my WIFE bothered me to do something that just COULDN'T WAIT AND SHE COULDN'T DO IT EITHER!!!! X-( ]

1x315 (couldn't move 335 any more)

1x315

So, I guess all these pull-ups that have made my back cry have paid off.

CF does indeed rock.

Dave Wood,

The pleasure was all mine. Thanks for hosting me for the past two WOD's... I had a great time and look forward to the next time we can train.

And yes you were correct with the DL poundages.

Felt that form was degrading so tried to work on improving form for the 3x (1x 315#) before moving up in weight.

I only have 250lbs (including bar) so I did that for 3 sets of 5 reps.

Then I did 3 rounds of 5 pullups/5 dips as a GTG type thing. I suck at pullups and it has been a while since I've done any dips.

Worked up to 345# for a series of singles alternating with a series of fails at 365#.

405 failed, apparently not.

60 pounds less than I could pull at 17.

Then practiced really getting low on the snatch with light weight. Then biked 25 minutes.

Forget the exact progression, since I forogt to post right after I did the workout.

Started at 135lbs (BW = 140), finished with 240 (PR from 225). Very happy with this.

BW 165

135x3, 155x2x3, 185x1, 205x1x4 (PR)

Could've gone slightly heavier, but wanted to lock in at 205 and keep form strong. 1.5x BW is a couple of months away.

My "bad back" has never felt better since I started DL'ing.

Today was an 8.5/10.

225 x 3 (then 5 consecutive MU)

275 x 2 (then 5 consecutive MU)

325 x 2 (then 5 consecutive MU), felt easy?

345 x 1 (lost grip; then 3 consecutive MU)

365 x 1 (5 HS attempts)

385 x 1 (missed 385 last time; 5 HS attempts)

395 x 0 (only got it up a few inches, 5 HS attempts)

395 x 0 (someone glued it to the floor when I got a drink!)

johnmcc,

at what point of the deadlift are you leaning forward too much? i would need to get a better picture in my head to give you any advice on what you are doing wrong specifically.

-------------------------------------

that being said, whether you are doing sumo(hands between legs)or regular deadlifts(hands outside legs) your back should be flat. i.e. squeeze your shoulders tight(no spaghetti arms) and hold before you start the lift. when you drive upward you want to make sure your butt is not coming upward(this may be what is causing you to lean forward too much)first. you need to make sure your leg drive is upward w/out your butt leading first. look at the exercises on the top left of the site and check out the deadlift slideshow. it has an excellent sideview of a deadlift. practice your form w/very light weight if necessary. remember, the performance of the lift is an actual learned skill, so take time to practice the form.

johnmcc,

one last thing, if you are leaning forward before the lift even starts you probably just have the bar out in front of you too far. it should be pretty close to your shins before the lift starts.

Deadlift 135x3,145x2,155x2,165x2,175x1,185x1,195x1,205x1,215xmiss

Just don't feel like I can really push it on these. Am too afraid of re-injuring my lower back.

First day deadlifting since Diane took out my back for two months. Worked up to 75# under PR (used to be able to pull double BW at 300#) of 225.

Alternated my weenie-deadlifts with dumbell snatches. Worked up to 65# singles, both arms. Pretty happy with that.
