Elyse nice pull, but rounding like that is going to destroy your spine.

Okay, I don't know how that video got onto the main site. My untrained grandmother has better dead lifting form.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Ted at October 15, 2010 5:25 PM

Yeah the DL form is a bit concerning, I am pretty sure you want to maintain that nice lumbar curve.

One may argue that the form at the 09 games didnt matter either, which is fine. I guess as long as you dont always lift like that.

Also saw someone doing calf raises in the background? ...NER?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Harlan at October 15, 2010 5:39 PM

Not the best choice of videos....
That deadlift at 290 was a little scary. I cringed at 295.

Comment #9 - Posted by: jay at October 15, 2010 5:41 PM

great vids, except that DL form from HI. Felt my spine just watching it. Girl you are strong, but if you get a better form you'll be even stronger. sometimes its not worth going your heaviest you know. Good luck :D

Comment #10 - Posted by: dj at October 15, 2010 5:42 PM

really? really?? c'mon CF Team! Is somebody asleep when these videos are posted? Set back, load hams on heels, fight chest up then slow tension and pull....that was EXACTLY the opposite...c'mon really? I'm afraid to tell my new clients to check the site.

Comment #11 - Posted by: JD at October 15, 2010 6:00 PM

ahaha I knew as I was watching the chick from HI doing max DL that people would freak. If shes cool with it, then I'm cool with it...

Comment #12 - Posted by: Blanco at October 15, 2010 6:03 PM

That DL made us cringe.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Jeremy A. Olive at October 15, 2010 6:06 PM

How can you possibly count that as a deadlift? It was a spine lift/shoulder roll!
It is only OK to lift with SLIGHT curvature of the spine when it's under 50% intensity (e.g. shopping bags) to strengthen ligaments and tendons.. NOT with ONE REP MAXIMUMS!
We are trying to teach quality before quantity with our clients and this rubbish is shown, re-do the deadlift anduse your glutes not BACK.. PLEASE. P.s I don't know how the guy filming allows Elyse to complete that lift

Comment #14 - Posted by: NDE at October 15, 2010 6:14 PM

The video is an example of Crossfit's biggest flaw: people are more concerned with "loads" and "times" than with proper form and safety. You're only cheating yourself!

Comment #15 - Posted by: Mr. Joshua at October 15, 2010 6:27 PM

I'm new to Crossfit so maybe someone can help me out here. Am I supposed to warm up to a max on each lift, or is this like Powerlifting where I get three trys and record my max. Can I just keep going until I can't get the weight on each lift? Your input would be much appreciated.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Ben at October 15, 2010 6:31 PM

Seems that some of the recent WOD video demos are featuring people using poor (even dangerous) form. Hope the admins keep a closer eye on this...

Vault Videos ROCK!

Comment #23 - Posted by: james.patrick [M/48/66"/135] at October 15, 2010 7:21 PM

I agree that deadlift (Umeda) was scary looking. If one of my buddies was pullin like that I'd have them set it down immediately. It's really nice when the videos critique that sort of form like the vault video, which is excellent. 295 is impressive, but if I were her I'd strive for preserving my back and working at a load I can keep at least minimal form with.

NDE I'm with you, encouraging a pull with that form (the videographer) is irresponsible and may lead to an injury. Jose, that is NOT solid deadlifting form and you will learn that in 20 years when you have chronic back pain (unless you correct your form).

Comment #24 - Posted by: sam_r at October 15, 2010 7:26 PM

Started CF one month ago and totally loving it. But, this is the first time I've been genuinely concerned about the form shown in these videos - the deadlifts. Great way to get injured.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Jim at October 15, 2010 7:31 PM

Wow Elyse epic pull there, but isn't the back supposed to stay straight for deadlifts? It looked like her spine was going to slip disks bending like that with all that weight. Made me wince waiting for something bad to happen.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Justin at October 15, 2010 7:36 PM

The vids from the vault are so great. The joy that Zac and Nicole exhibit is fun to watch. Things weren't quite so serious back at the beginning. I love prs and seek them everyday but sometimes it's nice just to have a good time and laugh at the fails instead of cursing.

And Nicole.... wow!

Comment #27 - Posted by: Smithy/m/50/5'10"/168 at October 15, 2010 7:45 PM

OK, I used to think the CF team would post these kind of crappy videos just to spark a reaction from us in the forum. Now after seeing this video I'm convinced that's exactly what they do. In the "from the vault" video, the guy barely rounds and it says they would stop a client. Then they go and post the other vid with that poor girl just lucky she didn't shoot a disk out her butt... Come on CFHQ, are the critics right? Do you not care about form? What happened to technique, consistency, then intensity? I'm guessing her 1RM with good form is about 245-250. Sometimes more is NOT better!!

Comment #28 - Posted by: Eric at October 15, 2010 7:54 PM

People need to watch strongman and powerlifting before they comment on form. A deadlift is pick the bar up and put it back down, it's that simple, form is there to try to maximize weight and minimize injury... If you are lifting your true max your form will suffer the idea is to try to maintain tightness and form but the main thing is tightness to protect your spine.

This is from a guy that can pull 195kg at present, 429 in the old money.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Brian R at October 15, 2010 7:59 PM

WOW....Terrible, Terrible form on that deadlift, Elyse!

Someone needs to learn what "neutral spine" means and how it will prevent your vertebrate from popping out.

Guess I'll stop watching the demo's for a "how-to" advice. I agree with the guy who said the cameraman should've stopped it before she (gulp) locked out.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Jose Carnish at October 15, 2010 8:10 PM

Yeah, Jose, the form wasn't great. She needs to work on keeping her chest up, most definitely. Most of the rounding was at the thoracic spine, which bears a lower load than the lumbar spine. Because of this, it's less likely to cause injury, but anyone could clearly see that deadlift was pretty horrendous.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Brent at October 15, 2010 8:16 PM

#28 Brian: Agreed, but I also see those powerlifting and strongman videos with the participant wearing a weight belt. Since Umeda is deadlifting for CrossFit Total, those standards should apply. That is not a blurred line between technique and intensity, that was a hot mess from the beginning. The first thing to move was her thorax. I agree with #13 NDE, that it was a spine lift.

I have female athletes (with 275# 1RM) that I won't allow to go beyond double body weight deadlifts because their lumbar curve starts to surrender at that max load. It's just not worth it!

Comment #32 - Posted by: Dana at October 15, 2010 8:32 PM

Brutal vid to watch. Don't feel she got the squat 100% unassisted and the DL form had me cringing.

Credit to her for lifting heavy, but it's ugly at best. Disappointing from a good athlete and games qualifier.

how many times do you people want to repeat each other? Its been said her deadlift was rough - stop being a bunch of sooks and shut up

Comment #35 - Posted by: james at October 15, 2010 9:02 PM

Form aside, everyone please click on the blue CFT link and read the rules for the total. Such as:

Once moving, the bar must continue moving. No inching it up the leg on the DL, no pausing or bouncing up on the squat or press, no knee bend on the press, etc. Very strictly laid out.

This is a test.

If we don't stick to the rules on this test, it is pretty much meaningless...even if CF puts the video up on the mainsite ; )

my two cents.

funny to read the comments from jealous guys when they see a small woman lift more than they can. get over it.

all lifts were clean and met the standard. cft of nearly 700 lbs, probably 5x her body weight.

Comment #39 - Posted by: chuck at October 15, 2010 9:28 PM

i guess everyone else knows better than these elite athletes...you guys must all know so much about crossfit and fitness in general. none of you would qualify for the CF games or even ATTEMPT to qualify... you're the people that sit back on Sunday afternoons and bicker about your favorite NFL teams because you think you know better

Comment #40 - Posted by: CF at October 15, 2010 9:30 PM

Powerlifter for years. Good form is something to strive for, not CRY for . Nice solid work.

Comment #41 - Posted by: BT at October 15, 2010 9:53 PM

Actually that lift was not good. Elyse "hiked it up". The bar can't stop or go down. But a rounded back is ugly but legal.

Deadlift was UGLY, I'm not counting it. Looked like she had some help up on the squat as well.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Elite Crossfiter at October 16, 2010 12:58 AM

what's with the trolls bagging on the form? Those lifts were cold as ice, perfect. Put on your clown shoes and join the circus. That's an elite athlete. The nitpicking on form is for the novice. She's moving serious weight for a woman that size.

Comment #46 - Posted by: mojo at October 16, 2010 2:15 AM

core to extremity violation what a great example. i think the idea of working intesity and good form do allow for some slight deviation/ grey areas, but when it becomes an obvius safety issue eppecially in training not even on a comp day. I would say that the guy filming Elyse need to be giving her better feedback not negative re-enforcement of poor technique. I hope other athletes see the risks. sorry to be negative just thought it needed to be adressed.
Aside from that great effort by her and some good score very impressed but more impressed by good form and big lifts.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Arthur M/35/5'11"/190 at October 16, 2010 5:24 AM

Looks like Elyse does not follow the rules of the CF total or of powerlifting. Those deads do not pass the test for either standard. Not sure about strongman comps but maybe. Rounded back: legal. Bouncing and hitching: not legal. Many 2009 games deads did not count in CF Total or powerlifting. There were no rules. Hitching the weight, bouncing etc was all allowed. There are reasons that those things are banned in powerlifting competitions. For one they allow greater lifts to be made without having the corresponding strength and this leads to the second which is torn biceps and blown disks.

Having a bit of a round in your back is fine at max loads, you see it all the time in powerlifting, HOWEVER you will notice that the top lifters are able to MAINTAIN the same slightly rounded back position throughout the lift. They start with their round and carry it through until the end when they straighten up. Elyse started pulling, couldn't maintain her back tightness, rounded to the maximum possible (known as the dog crap position) and then pulled the bar off the ground. This is problematic when related to injury but maybe more importantly to a top CrossFitter it is the reason she had a hard time locking the weight out legally.

Comment #62 - Posted by: CraigH at October 16, 2010 6:13 AM

My 51st officially logged WOD:

"CrossFit Total"

Back squat: 205lbs
Shoulder Press: 105lbs
Deadlift: 255lbs
===========
CFT: 565lbs

NOTES
- Perfect timing! It was nice to benchmark my progress after having just completed 50 WODs. I'll def do this again after my 100th WOD (if it doesn't come up again before that)
- Not especially happy with total, but it's a damn sight better than it would have been 3 months ago!
- Could have lifted a lot more on squat but dumped 205lbs (my globo gym doesn't have power racks so it dropped a fair distance eliciting a lot of dirty looks). Anyway, this made me gun-shy for heavier attempts. I guess I should be happy I ultimately got 205lbs (for 2 reps)
- Deadlift could have went heavier as well but started to feel pinch in hip/lower back. Don't want to mess around with that
- Shoulder press makes no sense, I was able to get 105lbs for 3 reps in a previous WOD but couldn't get 115lbs for one rep. Just felt weak today, plain and simple.

Comment #63 - Posted by: toddamn m/36/5'8"/155 at October 16, 2010 6:21 AM

A question for you guys:

Does doing the crossfit total have any kind of developmental benefit, or is it just meant to test my max efforts?

Am I better off doing a heavy squat or deadlift session, since those are my weaknesses?

Comment #65 - Posted by: Arvind at October 16, 2010 6:45 AM

Granted both of those deadlifts were ugly as sin, but has not rounded when going for a true heavy PR? What do her other attempts look like? What do you think her next attempt at the same weight might look like next time? I would wager to say that she would lock her form in and have a better looking lift.

Secondly, what if that video was posted to encourage discussion on proper deadlift mechanics and form? I did see a caption of "spot on form. Lift this way!". Just like some of the interesting/controversial articles that are posted to encourage discussion on rest, this could be a stimulus to discuss proper form.

The guy urging her did a disservice by encouraging a rounded back.

@Jon - the squats in PL comps are heavier then the deads because of the assistance of the squat suit: plus the hands do not benefit from gear.

Since no one seems to have noticed, the deadlift in that video was dangerous.

I have noticed this topic come up multiple times; Why do many of those who post on here have a heavier dead than a back squat?
I have been frustrated with this for quite sometime. I can front squat 325 overhead 225 and a new PR on the back today of 405. I fought to obtain 405 for a while now and just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this.
thank you

This is what I could do based on equipment I have (very minimal) and without a spotter:

1 Rep Backsquat: 95lbs

1 Rep Press: 75lbs

1 Rep Deadlift: 130lbs.

95 + 75 + 130 = 300lbs.

still happy overall as this is only my third week back after being off for over a month with injury. started too heavy on press and had 2 fails right off the back, so i just went with 155 to have something to record. didn't lose as much strength as a thought. now my goal is to get 900 by next total.

First Crossfit total since we bought squat racks. I used to have to do front squats preceded by a clean.

So...

Back Squat = 230# (+15 PR)

Deadlift = 255# (+5 PR)

As Rx: BS 340# (new PR by 5#) + SP 165# (tied PR) + DL 415# (off PR by 5#) = 920 (tied PR).

BS: 45#x10; 135#x5; 225#x5; 295-315-335-340#.

DL: 225-295-345-395-425(fx2)-420(f)-415#.

Happy with the new BS PR. Got a little over zealous in trying to hit new PRs on the SP and DL. Probably shouldn't have jumped 10# on the SP and really should have jumped 30# on the DL. By the time I got to 415#, I was pretty tired. It was a struggle and I may have strained my low back a bit.

Wow, not cool. I especially don't like those who criticize and have no numbers to post. Well, I think you guys should start including videos with your numbers to teach us what solid lifts look like, then we'd learn from the "best". I do agree though, always STRIVE for perfect form. Great job on people who hit PR's on these lifts.

What's the starting platform for the shoulder press?
It can't be a Smith machine? A squat rack? It seems like it'd be a bit difficult to even pick up 225lbs off a rack to push it up.

What would you suppose are good scores for a 33 year old male, 5'7, 149lbs?

Although I'm more than willing to pile on critiquing Elyse Umeda's dead lift form; I'm more interested in "What will either Coach Rippetoe or Coach Burgener say about her dead lift"

This now becomes a perfect Crossfit HQ Video, where one or more "experts" on video go about critiquing Elyse Umeda's dead lift form, perhaps even drawing straight-lines through various points on her body to illustrate when and where the form breaks down, perhaps even measuring (as in "measurement") how much the form breaks down.

Likewise, Crossfit Radio can then start interviewing Coach Rippetoe, Coach Burgener, and Dave "I Fear Pink so says KStarr" Castro, etc using the Elyse Umeda video as a facilitation tool regarding standards, when they apply and when they don't.

Of interest would be, how would CFT be judged at start of Crossfit Games 2011 (event #first) and at the end of Crossfit Games 2011 (event #last), assuming one wanted to measure how much of a hit "absolute strength" took during the course of the games.

FWIW, my CFT was:
BackSquat = 225# (5 warm-up sets)
ShoulderPress = 110# (3 warm-up sets)
Deadlift = 235# (4 warm-up sets, dropping the 235# at full extension)
Total = 570#

No spotter, weight rack was used. Re-reading Rippetoe's CFT article also makes me realize that he would say "You did it wrong and your total doesn't count" (e.g. doing > 2 intermediate warm-up lifts, dropping the weight, etc)

Sorry if some people's feelings are hurt and such; however, Crossfit is about measurement and standards and virtuosity.

I call bull on mfryer. Your form is probably bad and you probably don't break parallel on your squats. Dave Lipson squatted 550, I doubt you squatted 600. And Elyse's form was bad and even WORSE on the deadlift.

Limiting factor on deadlifts was grip strength and cramping in the back/shoulders. Did not push to failure on squats or deads, so maybe a bit more in the tank. I will have to push harder next time...

Thought this was kind of cool and could be encouraging to any new crossfitters out there. I first did the Crossfit Total six months ago and got a score of 895 (Squat 300 with suspect form; Press 175 again with suspect form; Deadlift 425). Now, after six months of following the main site religiously, my score was a 975 (Squat 325 good form; Press 185 good form; Deadlift 465 good form). That's a jump of 80 lbs in six months! I'm pretty happy with that.

Why do my back squats suck so bad? I front squated the exact same thing last week...I'm definitely missing something.

Comment #252 - Posted by: reynolds at October 21, 2010 7:30 AM

Elyse has rector muscles you could beat with a baseball bat. No prob with that lift. Probably not what I would want to show as an example to a bunch of people just starting to lift though.... Nice work girl!!

Comment #253 - Posted by: freddy c._one world at October 21, 2010 9:09 AM

Back squat, 1 rep (skipped)
Shoulder Press, 1 rep (125#)
Deadlift, 1 rep (285#)

Limited time, so I skipped squats due to gimpy left knee (acted up from front squats--maybe I did those too much on heels, feet too close together?). Not happy with numbers but I'm working my way back from layoff.

I think it's ridiculous the comments on Elyse. I think at one point, someone said crossfit is about quality, not quantity. I believe it's the exact opposite actually. I mean the mascot in based on puking. Her form was not good, but have you seen the crossfit games? (In which Elyse got #11 while being about 50lbs lighter than the rest of the competition) You can't stop in the middle of a workout and say "ok you lost your form, let's take a break." It's about getting the stuff done as fast as possible. She is working within the constraints of the competition. The crossfit standards are there for just that, to keep it standard, but by no means safe. If that was the case, they would say no rounded back. I believe that's why crossfiters have the highest incidence of injury of any athlete. But that's the nature of crossfit. She's one of the best female crossfitters (especially if you toook relative strength into consideration), not a deadlift coach.

GORDON's REPLY:

Amy, you're almost as tall as me, and, since I've personally experienced the same thing, I can tell you what I found out as the reason for sucking @ squats! -LOL...

The reason you're so weak in the squate is that you've probably got long femur bones (between your knee & hips), which means that the angle of the leverage is BAD: You've got to move the weight a lot further than some short person.

To illustrate that fact, take note that I can 'rack pull' 635-lbs at a bw of 120-lbs and height of 5'10" (I can only pull the 635 like an inch or less, but you get the picture).

However, I only got 190x2 squat. Once. REAL HARD.

Also, my floor 1RM deadlift is also 285, like yours, and only 275x3, and my standing press is only 5-lbs more: 100x1 or 95x3. I once did 190x2 in the squat, but that was when I was REALLY well-rested (and had not squatted for weeks on end because of the plan I was on, oddly enough, did not call for squats, but substituted dumbell squats, which did not tax my body as much.)

fwiw, My 1RM bench press is only 160, and that is with my butt a bit off the bench: Based on your stats, I suspect you also have difficulty bench pressing large numbers --due to a long reach, small chest, and small butt, ALL of which will make bench pressing QUITE DIFFICULT.

fwiw, My youtube (GordonWayneWatts) has my old rack pull of 585 posted --gotta scroll back a bit in history... maybe will get the 635 posted if I can get other numbers respectably LOL.

My Diet: I have gained a tiny bit since I've gone vegan, and I always eat everything in sight, avoiding meat, esp. milk, as it is a cancer risk. America's high cancer rates are due to our non-vegan diet.

Comment #306 - Posted by: FLASH Gordon Wayne Watts at September 20, 2011 8:29 AM

Long time since doing a "total." Specifically, July of 2008:

squat 245
press 135 (failed 155, should have gone up slower)
DL 275 (failed 295, ditto)

Total: 655

This time (out of order?):

Press 130 (unacceptable)
Squat 275 (failed on 285)
DL 345 (failed on 355 twice, frustrating)

Total: 750

Didn't feel like the best intensity but its a new benchmark.
