The inside of my thighs are still hurtin' despite the rest day.
Banging out deadlifts might be the best thing for them.

Comment #1 - Posted by: Thomas Kryston at August 30, 2005 8:36 PM

another newbie question...

how much rest in between sets of 7? thanks in advance

Josh

Comment #2 - Posted by: Josh at August 30, 2005 8:43 PM

Josh,

30-60 sec is all you should rest. Anymore than that and you begin to lose the cardio benefit of the workout. WELCOME!!!

Comment #3 - Posted by: JackM at August 30, 2005 9:11 PM

Suggestions for weights to try for someone who's never done deadlifts? 210 lb bodyweight or thereabouts.

Comment #4 - Posted by: John B at August 30, 2005 9:14 PM

Jeff - it doesn't say for time so that is up to you. You can approach it different ways and get benefits from all of them. Do like Jack says. Or go for heavier weight (remember - only touch and go at bottom for each rep) and take longer rests. I wouldn't take so long that you cool off. I will probably do somewhere between 30 seconds and 90 seconds for rest. But then again, if my back warns me, or if I feel stronger and want to take time to add weight, I might change that rest time estimate.

Comment #5 - Posted by: beth at August 30, 2005 9:15 PM

John B,

Warm up with just the bar keeping good form. If your gym has ten pound "plates," use those so you have a distance from your staring point to the bar, and an adequate touch. If you've never done deadlifts, watch, watch & watch again the exercise done from the list on the website. If your form isn't in place, you'll end up hurting your back and/or your knees. Don't worry about weight -- that will follow good form. Heck, I couldn't even do a squat a year ago, but now I'm a deadlifting queen setting new PR's every time a workout like this comes along.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the very sensible sounding advice - it was the back and knees that had me wondering. Good luck with your own deadlifting queen-ing!

Comment #9 - Posted by: Tim 'crack' H at August 31, 2005 1:51 AM

What does "touch and go at ground only" mean? Does it mean as sson as the weight touches the ground start your next rep?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Allan at August 31, 2005 4:13 AM

7 sets @ 225lbs, BW 185, 90s rests.
My legs could use a little break after lunges monday, thrusters tuesday, DL's today...

Comment #11 - Posted by: Wade R at August 31, 2005 4:17 AM

Only had 60 lb dumbells at home so I did 3 sets of 18 in 55 sec, rest 60 seconds between sets.

That's probably the equivalent of 160-175 on a bar. Back in my powerlifting days (just for fun) I probably could have done 7x7 with 180-225 lb.

Team MOSUL is picking up steam! We will have seven for today's workout. It looks to be a good one, as usual.

Comment #16 - Posted by: MGV535 at August 31, 2005 5:10 AM

BW: 165#

120, 140, 160, 180, 200, 220, failed on 240 (glued to the floor) so did 230 broken into 2 + 2 + 2 + 1.

Almost lost my grip on 220#. Last set failed on 240# so dropped weight to 230 but still had to break it down as shown due to failing grip. Probably a good thing too. i didn't have a mirror set up to watch, but i think my form was starting to slip during the last 2 sets.

Comment #17 - Posted by: john v. at August 31, 2005 5:12 AM

Coach Rut's ME Black Box day. Coincidentally, it was deadlifts. Used the 3-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-1 protocol, and set a PR with 325 (by 20#!) in the last set.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Chris Forbis at August 31, 2005 5:19 AM

BW: 71kg

70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 (kg)

Last 3 sets broken. Mixed grip on last two sets. Last set was 6+1, so happy with that.

Finished with 2x10 snatch grip SLDL @ 50kg.

Rest: 60s for first 4 sets. Then 90-120s.

No time to mess around lashing together extra weight so just did 7*225lb every minute for 7 minutes (bw = 183). Will go to 10's for 10 next time.

Reps only started getting difficult in the 6th set, I should start off at 185# next time.

w/u: 3 x modified cfwu: ohs, situps, back extensions, hindu push-ups, 100xsingle-under jump rope
10xdeadlift w/45 lb. bar
wod: 135, 145, 155, 175, 185, 185, 185-grip and form was limiting factor (kept bending forward to avoid scraping shins/knees)
finished w/400 x single-under jump rope, double-under practice x five sets of 10 (broken) double unders-stuck at four straight before stepping on rope

Comment #29 - Posted by: mfbunch at August 31, 2005 6:39 AM

225lbs all the way through, maybe could've gone heavier but worried about form.

Comment #30 - Posted by: BrianW at August 31, 2005 6:57 AM

Did a little more than the seven sets. I just kept on going until my form started to break down a little. (every set 7 reps, all weights in kg)

30, 35, 40, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85, 90

Not great, but not bad considering I started six months ago in the beginner's program doing one set of twelve reps at 30kg and feeling it.

Sounds challenging! Especially w/ 225lbs.

Comment #35 - Posted by: bobbyasmith at August 31, 2005 7:30 AM

Trap bar deadlifts:

185/195/205/225/235/245/245 - stayed light; lower back and traps tight and sore from yesterday's sandbag mile.

3x7 ring dips - done slowly with full stretch at bottom, rings turned out and away from body at support position.

3x7 65# BB OH squats - right knee can just barely bend far enough for butt to ankles depth with this weight.

3x7 Janda situps - hands held above head. Very strong except for the first rep when I forgot to tighten my glutes and was rewarded with a massive cramp in one of my upper "abs". I have to say that really hurt!

3x7 36# kb windmills - left shoulder not feeling smooth during this movement.

3x20 second 52# kb holds at overhead position - right side has no troubles; I can walk around the basement with the bell overhead without struggle. Left side is a different story. Just holding it in place for anything over ten seconds is a challenge; walking, shuffling or even moving my body position is a near disaster. What's worse is that I couldn't even return the bell to rack position on the left side without assistance either. It's as if my left side doesn't have a clue what to do. Anyone have any ideas?

My back is bothering me- do you think these lifts would be a bad idea for me to try today? And do you think one of those leather belts weight lifters use would help with some support?
Thanks,

Comment #40 - Posted by: Allan at August 31, 2005 8:07 AM

Kelly M,
first, congrats on your 7 rep DL loads! Impressive as usual!

You may want to back off on the weight on your left side. Use a 1 pood and just do more sets and/or longer sets. You need to build up the stabilizers in your left shoulder. I think it would be safer to do with less weight. 1 handed KB drills reveal your stabilization weakness like no DB/BB can do (reason # 47 - why KBs are superior to DBs). [I'm assuming no pain/injury noted]

Please email me with your comments when and if you try this. Thanks!

Tom

Comment #41 - Posted by: Tom Corrigan at August 31, 2005 8:10 AM

Kelly M.

during your windmills, make sure you really flex your left lat hard, sucking the shoulder deep in the socket. That should help. Also, you could try going down half-way on yur first rep, then go a bit deeper each time, focusing on your shoulder tightness. By doing so, it will be easier to focus on it, and you will build confidence and a better "groove" for the movement.

Tom

Comment #42 - Posted by: Tom Corrigan at August 31, 2005 8:15 AM

Comment #55 - Posted by: David T. at August 31, 2005 10:13 AM

Everything in pounds:
bw 170-175 (not sure, oughtta check)

cfwu x 2, then

DLs (lbs x sets of 7):
195 x 3, 205, 215 x 2, 225
Watching form in the mirror, it seemed OK. Abt 30 sec rest btw sets.

Then OH Squats the same way, lower weights for form (cuz I stink at 'em):
35, 45, 55, 65 x 2, 75 x 2
Form OK until the last set, so a good workout overall.

Then I ran a leisurely 2.5 miles in the Fort Bragg midday sun on the USASOC loop. Time: 20:25.
Nice weather, a good workout.

First Crossfit workout for me.

Not sure of the bar weight, so it would have to be added to the weight given below...anyone know (standard bar, skinny in middle with fat ends)?

Didn't want to go too heavy first time as I was more concerned with form.

Worked out at CFHB this morning with Carol and her crew (remember the women in the picture?). Great bunch who ran me into the ground, literally. Nice place to work out overlooking the Bolsa Chica wetlands. Did some running and hill sprints as a warm up, then a 5 station grinder that has me feeling like an old piece of shoe leather, but not as supple.
Thanks again ladies! I hope to return soon, as my schedule permits!

Oh, for the curious: The ladies are real; and they are spectacular. (Seinfeld reference, anyone?)

Take that Jeff Martin!

As the weight got heavier it wasn't lifting that got difficult, it was putting it down without bending entirely at the waist. Focussed heavily on form today.

Also set myself an L-sit benchmark at about 13.5 seconds.

135,225,275,285,275,275,275. Did not feel stable today, would have pushed harder for singles but afraid form would slip as far as low back stability during last few reps(working on it, years of neglect after following physicians & PT direction to lift light and not deadlift or squat heavy, result, every year my back got weaker) Luckily I kept active and worked much of my body including bench, HSPU, one armed pushups and chins. Mounted rings in garage today ring dips 5,5,5,5,5,5,10,10,10,10. Carry sandbag later depending on how back feels tonight.

we were limited as to the amount of weight that we could have due to circumstances at the gym, but that's probably for the best on our part. form is still a big deal for us and just past 110 is probably around the point where i would loose decent form.

anyone feeling crossfit nc state? i think there are only two of us, and we're both fairly new.

Jim - nothing to worry about on the "benchmark" today! I'm coming off a hip injury (judo) so it will likely be slow going for me for a while.

No dice on the OHS challenge - I topped out at 12x165#. I think Nic Nakis & Mike Rutherford were the only ones to finish. I'm still plugging away at it, so hopefully by the end of the year.

Keep posting, I need the motivation!

I was told by some guy at the gym last time we had a deadlift WOD that I should use a grip where one hand faces in and the other out. What's The CF thought on that? When I started 3 months ago I was just doing the normal grip. Thnaks.

WOD: 135/185/205/205/205/205/205...wouldve gone higher but the last rep of the last two or three sets was rough. felt money on the first 5 reps of each set, though. maybe a swim later...and maybe some squat work after that (but this might become handstand work since im still wicked sore).

Comment #116 - Posted by: ediddy at August 31, 2005 4:29 PM

DJ

One hand in and one hand out allows the weight to be more balanced. With both hands the same direction, the bar tends to want to roll off your finger tips. Less likely to roll if your hands are placed with one in and one out. But this grip does not prevent your hands and fingers from becoming fatigued. So "guy at the gym" made a good point.

Comment #117 - Posted by: Jack M at August 31, 2005 4:31 PM

Thanks. My knowledge of lifting is limited. The "guy at the gym" also said that grip helps w/takeing some of the strain off your back. I don't know if that's true or not, but your explanation made sense. Thanks again.

D.J.

Comment #120 - Posted by: DJ at August 31, 2005 4:53 PM

DJ,

Try a hook grip (grab with thumbs underneath the bar and wrap your fingers over your thumbs). It is the standard grip for the Olympic lifts, eliminates the "rolling" of the bar, and is still pretty strong even when your hands are fatigued. It's pretty uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it, you'll never go back.

Comment #121 - Posted by: Eric_2 at August 31, 2005 4:55 PM

Thanks bro, I appreciate the advice. Is the thumb undernaeth w/the fingers, only bent in so the fingers are over them? Thanks for any clarification. Thanks again.

Due to a buddy not being able to join me in the boutique gym I belong to, we went out and Did "Helen" with my new 1.5 pood KB (which I named "Boris"). Times weren't so great, but we got a good workout: Both in the 13:36 range.

Instead of having him join the gym, and heeding the advice of Grady Mac on the equiment board, I got some O-lift equipment from BFS: A superbar, two 25#, two 35# and four 45# bumper plates (along with a chalk ball and two spring-lock collars). Now we can get messed up whenever and wherever. Plus, the boutique boys don't have the bumpers (wusses).

Switched to trap bar for rest of sets. My form for lifting with the bar is great, lowering on the other hand isn't pretty my knees keep getting in the way. I just can't seem to lower the bar right.

185 (lifting with trap bar is awkward have to get used to it, better with Barbell for this, lowering trap-bar with good form is easy).

Took 90 Seconds between each set.
I think I could have gone heavier. Question what's a good fromula to figure out how much wieght to do for 7 sets of 7 ? I can Dl about 305 for 1 rep.

Forgot to post yesterday, I did 30kg (+ the bar, what's that weigh again) for sets 1, 2, 3, 4, & 7, and 40kg for 5 & 6. Ouch, I hurt today, I don't think I was doing them right.

I was really trying to concentrate on form, and my grip needs strengthening. That was my limiting factor at the end, I know I could have gone heavier if my grip was stronger.

Comment #163 - Posted by: adrian at September 1, 2005 4:59 AM

Joseph_B, not claiming expertise here, but this is how I work out volume when I create work sets from a 1RM

55%1RM = 12 reps
60%1RM = 10 reps
65%1RM = 8 reps

70%1RM = 7 reps

75%1RM = 6 reps
80%1RM = 4 reps
85%1RM = 3 reps
90%1RM = 2 reps
95%1RM = singles
and up

So 1RM of 305 is about 215, and I would have tried to place that attempt in the middle of the workout so that you have a couple of sets building up to it and perhaps a couple of sets that try to exceed it.

All sets touch & go, unbroken, 245#.

Made a big lunch-noise at the CommGym.

Finished with a bunch of squat clean singles and front squats at 135. Felt pretty strong in spite of being beat up by Fran the other day.

Comment #169 - Posted by: Alex McClung at September 1, 2005 10:43 AM

I'm still a bit new to all this, so my loads are on the lighter side while I'm getting used to the movements. Overall, though, I felt pretty good about this lift.

BW: 176 LB

1: 7 x 95LB
2: 7 x 100LB
3: 7 x 110LB
4: 7 x 115LB
5: 7 x 120LB
6: 7 x 130LB
7: 7 x 135LB

I finished off with:

3 x L-sit practice
3 x Planche practice
20 minutes (2.62 miles) stair machine (the kind with actual moving stairs!)

I'm a sore monkey now. :)

bad form, with 135 lbs., was doing it in two stages, legs then back, no explosion either. With lighter weight, form improved but still not pulling until the end of the sets. Difficulty negotiating knees.

Should have started with more weight, but I didn't expect this to be so easy. I think the Rutman mile has really helped my back stability.

Too much ego, too much weight.

I'm a couple of days behind.

My grip and lower back are shot from doing Fran yesterday.

I got it done but I had to do drop sets.

I'm trying to lure my wife into Crossfit so today is her first Crossfit workout.

3 rounds of the Crossfit warm up

Deads

225 - 275 - 295 - 315 - 315 - 295 - 275

My Big Darlin

Hammer Strength Deadlift no weight - 20 - 40 - 50 - 50 - 50 - 50

I don't feel so bad about my Fran time the other day now.

I had forgot that I'd let the timer run for 40 seconds before starting so I was actually better than I thought.

Good times.

I love me some Crossfit but man oh man my lower back is shot.

Reduced volume/recovery week for me. Didn't push these too hard, but I did do 3 full range HSPUs on parallettes between each DL set. Then, a bit of toss'n catch swipes w/ the 35 lb clubbell, and some mills with the 35 also.

all in lbs.
all were overhand grip, no hook
lifted in socks, first time without shoes, feels better, more solid

7x 135/155/175/195/205(paused and reset grip twice)/195(reset grip)/195

finished with weighted, parallel grip pullups:
2x 35/55/65/75

I would like a 100 lb. weighted pullup for some reason!

For deadlifts, once back down below the knees, all were "drop" and go, so I did have a grip relax and regrip at each rep. Maybe this means I should have used a weight I can lower with good form; my form feels worse when I lower.
