big fan of rob orlando. insanely strong guy...almost refreshing to see him not make a lift. obviously the guy doesn't need my encouragement, but keep at it man, definitely an inspiration to a lot of crossfitters

Nothing better than Rob Orlando videos!! Keep them coming !!!

Comment #4 - Posted by: Alex G at October 13, 2011 5:44 PM

Dang, #575 and that is something he says he isn't good at! Rob O is a BEAST! Agree with #2, it is refreshing to see a more "mortal" side to one of the top dogs in CF; definitely motivating to see that even though top CF'ers make it all look easy, they too have to battle for improvement. Will hit this hard in the AM.

Nice one Orlando. Quote "deadlifts are not something i'm good at". If your not good at deadlifts what does that make the rest of us?hahaha

Comment #6 - Posted by: Mudz Te Heuheu at October 13, 2011 5:49 PM

I have a nutrition question for the greater Crossfit Community. It seems that most people (including Dr. Sears) group foods into one category or another. I assume that this is done for simplicity's sake, but it seems like ignoring the rest of the macro-nutrients in foods could completely throw off the measurements.

For example, 100 grams of broccoli has 7g of carbs, 2g of protein, and 0g of fat. So lets say I'm eating a 4 block meal, that means that I would need to eat 514g of broccoli if that was my only source of carbs. HOWEVER, I am also getting 8g of protein from the broccoli. If you ONLY count Broccoli as a carb, you are eating a full extra block of protein. This holds true for tons of foods out there and seems like it would partially invalidate the relationship between the weighing/measuring and the results. This could be partially compensated for by keeping a food journal and then adjusting portions of the foods based on how you feel (as described in Dr. Sears books) but it seems like it would be better to keep track of ALL the macro-nutrients of all the foods you are eating.

Does anyone out there take all the macro-nutrients of all their food into account or does everyone just lump everything into one category or another (with the exception of the few foods listed as "combo items" in CFJ 21?

Also, does anyone have any recommended reading on the subject?

I was lucky enough to get to train alongside rob for a couple years and there is no one more humble than that guy. He has such a great perspective on life and crossfit, and will cheer just as loudly for you to break the 300lb mark as people do for him when he breaks 600. He's an even better man than he is a crossfitter and we all have witnesses what a crossfitter he is.

Rob O is the man. To post a video of himself "failing" (relatively speaking) and humbling himself is awesome. Done it myself, just far far far below 575#.

I'm really terrible at deadlifts. But I will lift all that I can and post honest numbers in the morning. Get some everybody!

And Rob, you are a beautiful sick man. I'm torn between you and Josh Everett, my original Crossfit mancrush.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Nate Christenson at October 13, 2011 9:44 PM

It seems that regardless of the weight we are trying to pull, we have the same variety of mental and emotional reactions. Rob O you're great and enjoy you in videos. It's hard to be demanding and simultaneously kind to yourself when goals and expectations are not met. In a totally different solar system, i can relate. Keep it up and good luck!

Comment #22 - Posted by: Ron at October 13, 2011 10:26 PM

i was my deadlifts were as much as a weakness as Rob O.

Comment #23 - Posted by: rob at October 14, 2011 1:08 AM

new to crossfit. is each one of these reps my one rep max?

Comment #24 - Posted by: Mac at October 14, 2011 1:40 AM

and also, what kind of rest period am i lookin at?

Comment #25 - Posted by: Mac at October 14, 2011 1:51 AM

Mac,

It depends on your situation, but most trainers would probably advise you to work up to your 1-rep max (like Rob did in the video).

Rob Orlando is a beast, and an inspiration to me. He'll get 3X bodyweight before I get 2X.

BTW, not to nit-pick, but I'm pretty sure Terry "Butts" was actually Terry "Betts", the former international speedway rider. And I'm pretty sure Kelly (who I love and admire) meant to spell "dysfunction" in that video.... Oh well.

I'm intrigued. When I fail at deadlift it's at the floor, or very close. When I can get it as high as Rob did in his "failures" I can get it all the way up. I wonder what I can learn from that. Watching him get it up that high makes me yell, "Just do it, man!"

Comment #45 - Posted by: Thatcher M/44/5'10"/200 at October 14, 2011 6:57 AM

Rob, did that grimice on your face follwoing the 1st failed attempt at 575 have to do with some back stiffnes/discomfort? While not "halloween cat back" rounded like Austin and Spencer, you're still not locking in your lumbar. Why not? Pertaining to your inablity to breach 600, drop your multi set singles/doubles next time by 100 + lbs, and then stair step your way up over 4-6 weeks to a possible new PR.

This seems to be the standard protocol for reaching a ceiling on SRMs.

Comment #51 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at October 14, 2011 8:04 AM

I agree about Mr. Orlando. This made me scratch my head though when I heard that he considered himself weak at deads. I, too, consider deads my weakness but I'm pulling considerably less than he is. If I can ever work up to pulling 500# once, I will call it good. What a beast and a humble one at that. Thanks for posting that video.

The consistency of high-quality, varied and motivational daily wod videos has been incredible in recent months.
Also, I find the mainsite pics really inspirational of late veering away from risk-taking behaviour shots to amazing images of raw intensity (like today), artistic athleticism and crossfit community ingenuity.

When I was introduced to crossfit 2 years ago, I thought that the site couldn't get any better. I was wrong! Huge kudos to HQ for continuing to grow and enhance an already amazing resource and community.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Simon at October 14, 2011 8:48 AM

This will be marked as my first crossfit workout. I've spent the last year and a half doing long distance running, so I'm going to have to get reacquainted with strength training.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Magnus 26/5'8"/160 at October 14, 2011 9:57 AM

Nate D: Sears does cover that. He says just count the blocks as prescribed as he already figured in some overlap into his program. For example, most meat has some fat but most people won't be that meticulous to count every fat gram. It's much easier to follow his program than count every little macro nutrient. As for wouldn't it be better to count every last macro-nutrient? I think it would depend on an individual basis. 40 30 30 is just a great place to start. As you really get into your diet and you see how your energy and fitness gains increase or decrease or plateau then you can start personalizing the ratios and possibly being as exact as counting every little fat, protein and carb gram.

More than "1/2 an Orlando" (555/2 = 277.5) which is good for me ;)

w/u - 30sec Samson, 10 x pushup - scap push - sit - be - dip, 3x5 dl 45-115-135, 10 KBS 1 pood; for time, 9-7-5 of 1 pood KBS + dips = 1:46

w/o - 7x1 dl - 185-205-225-245-265-285-300

90-120 secs between reps; from 205 on, 5 reps 1-pood KBS + 10 single unders between rounds

For me, fast timed warmup + between-set work ==> moving more weight during wod

random friday bits. skip it if you're looking for poundage...

playoff beard, love it that you moved 315 today (and have dl'd 330). motivating for me.

impressed with dl #s folks are posting, particularly the 2x+ bodyweight numbers, many from brand-new folks. wow, and inspirational.

after 8 mos. of crossfitting @ local Y, going to try free class tomorrow AM at a local CF box, gravity jane's (great name). Should be fun. Interested to see the level of coaching & what the 'feel' of the place is.

Contrary to lots of comments I've seen here in last 8 mos., my local non-CF gym, the Y, has been great about encouraging me to do wods. No problem with overhead or upside down (HSPU progressions), deads, squats, long chippers, whatever -- they're even intrigued with my bringing KBs with and are thinking of getting some for the other clients (after I put a suggestion in that they consider getting KBs). And personally encouraging too -- one of the guys working there saw me about to attempt 285 DL today and said "Wow, you've gone up a lot in weight since starting!"

So I've been pleasantly surprised that *some* non-cf gyms can handle wod-work...y'all had me spooked that they were going to show me the door.

What is everyone doing with rest time?

I'm early into cross fit - and my goals are definitely to tone/slim and just overall fitness. Should I use the westside dynamic? Or literally try to do 7 1 rep max's and then mix in some cardio? Thoughts?

tim #84, on strength days, between sets lately I'm timing (60-120 secs) & doing some kbs or single unders. it all seems to keep tissue activated -- today, back felt better & was easier to get and keep in extension during DLs -- and since workout 5 hours ago, back feels great (not always the case for me after heavy deads).

Rest Days: b/c of age & injuries, though I did 6 mos. or so with 3:1 work:rest scheme, lately it's 2:1 -- result: fewer tweaks, seemingly a bit more strength-endurance-power.

First off love the video and Rob you are always inspiring. The Deadlift bar you keep at hybrid that you talked about lifting without emotion. That might be the simple answer to your breaking the barrier. Try to eliminate emotion from the lift. Oddly enough over the past 3 years my best lifts have come when I dont think about it. When im amped up about it, it never seems to go up. Just a thought.
Best of luck, it WILL come.

I should have went up to 360 or 365, I got greedy! My strategy for this will change next time, probably make bigger jumps so I give myself a couple opportunities on the last one or the option to go down if my jump is too big like this time.

The last one was with a belt, felt a little wobbly on #6 and didn't want to take any chances. The belt helps but actually causes me to have worse form because of the assist. Won't do that again.

PR 18 months ago was 335 so I'm happy with today.

Next time, I'll try to get to the PR faster.

I know this WOD is a few days old now but I can't help myself. Some of you people I think are not understanding the point of this WOD. It's about raw 1 rep strength on the movement....it's not about doing excessive warm ups and cardio and additional exercises before or during the deadlifting. Save that for after or for another day...you are ruining your true deadlifting power!!

Heaviest lift was 140 kg. Couldn't go higher because my hands had rips that opened up again, and this led to slippage.
