Best three day session in a long time! excellent job HQ! Two strength days and an AMRAP, we are so gonna pay for this next set. I LOVE CROSSFIT

Comment #1 - Posted by: B at May 2, 2012 5:11 PM

How much time should be taken between these sets? 1 or 2 minutes?

Comment #2 - Posted by: Tom Martin at May 2, 2012 5:30 PM

5 x 5 is focused generally on strength training so I rest between 2-3 minutes so I can produce the most effort out of every rep.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Mark at May 2, 2012 5:52 PM

Is this a max lift?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Karol Burlile at May 2, 2012 6:02 PM

Whatever is happening in that pic is awesome.

Comment #5 - Posted by: marc at May 2, 2012 6:32 PM

This is a Max Effort, rest as much as you need. On these types of lifts I like to go to failure with good form, if it's not with good form then you probably aren't working the correct muscles. This holds true for deadlift, if you don't do this correctly you'll likely work your lower back or injur it, instead of your posterior chain.

Nice job on the deadlifts Andrew! Outstanding! No need to hyper extend your back that much though.

Comment #12 - Posted by: ryan warkentin at May 2, 2012 11:39 PM

Robert #11: Nice work! And thanks for posing a fun mental exercise regarding shutter speed... Here's my submission:
The stencil on the tail boom shows the aircraft to be a Robinson R-44 Raven. Following that search string, it looks like the R-44 has a rotor diameter of 10.1 m and a blade tip speed of ~187.2 m/s at full RPM. The blade tips are only slightly blurred over 2 or 3 pixels, so they must have traveled 2.1 to 3.2 cm during exposure (including the 87% foreshortening due to the camera angle). Thus, the exposure time is between 0.1 and 0.17 milliseconds, a range that includes the 1/8000 shutter speed commercially available in nicer cameras at present. Naturally, you'll want to check over all that yourself since I'm notoriously bad with numbers.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Adam W at May 3, 2012 6:33 AM

on the video showing the WOD why is "AB" bouncing on every rep if this is a max effort training each rep should be Dead on the floor- isnt that why they call it a deadlift.
if you dont come to a complete stop this is not a true max effort deadlift. you are using the bounce at the bottom to rebound and come up for the next rep.
IMO i think every rep should be treated as its own set in each of the 5 sets.
set 1
Rep 1, reset, set 2, reset...no bounce

Comment #34 - Posted by: david at May 3, 2012 6:44 AM

I don't get why everyone gets caught up on this idea of bouncing the deadlift. I have the hi temp plates and at that weight that don't bounce enough to help you out. I think they way they touch and go with the rest at the top is much more difficult then stopping at the bottom.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Todd at May 3, 2012 7:04 AM

Kipping pull-ups, bouncing deadlifts, seems like every movement executed in CF involves some sort of momentum or cheat to complete the repetition. And the form in most of the videos is awful. But what do I know anyway, I'm just a gym guy who does DEAD hang pull-ups and DEADlifts. Go Crossfitters!!!

#36 Haters gonna Hate. I have heard this complaint about stringing the Deads together alot. However, as long as you are getting stronger and not injuring yourself why does it matter? noone can bounce a 1RM and i would bet the average of any 100 Cfitters 1RM dead would be higher than the same type of sample from a traditional gym. Just my opinion.

Hey Ryan..post #36,
Nice post, I bet you rest 3 mins in between sets too huh. Get a drink of water, check out the girls on the elliptical, say hi to your buddy who's been on the bench for the last 30 mins. Say hi to your other buddy who's watching himself do curls in the mirror. Yeah, that gym sounds great. I'll take my crossfit and my cheating momentum anyday of the week.

@#36
Work is work is work. Notice how crossfitters are posting their work loads? And notice further how you haven't? Instead you've left some terribly inflammatory, condescending and blatantly incorrect comment about how body builders at Joe's Gym have perfect form because they take a LIFEtime to complete a DEADlift rep/set/workout. But that's beside the point because even the most famous body builders (i.e. Lee Haney, Arnold, Cutler) all discuss the benefit of what you call a "cheat rep" when pushing for max weight in a max set. And that's what today's WOD is: a max set at max weight. Additionally Crossfitters do perform DEAD hang pullups (L-pullups). Educate yourself.

Comment #59 - Posted by: mas 55/M/150 at May 3, 2012 11:01 AM

Day 3 on CrossFit and enjoying the variety and intensity. After the "official" CrossFit warm-up and a progression and warm-up deadlifts at 2 reps each, I made the following:
1) 285 x 5
2) 305 x 5
3) 305 x 5
4) 315 x 3 / reset grip then x2
5) 300 x 5
I maybe could have bumped the weight up on set 3 and maybe gotten away with 305 on the last set, but wanted to get all my reps. At least now I have a benchmark to beat next time.

Form was bad on 4th set, so I did same weight for fifth to focus on good ROM but didn't have strength/form to finish.

Comment #61 - Posted by: Shmitty at May 3, 2012 11:07 AM

@ #38 Ryan the gym guy: Great job on your dead hang pull-ups, although new to CrossFit, I have seen them in the WODs as I've been following for about 3 months before taking the plunge.

My prior program for about 3 years was a push-pull routine with many of the explosive Olympic lifts and for the most part multi-joint exercises. I haven't done the old "3 sets of 10" and single joint isolation exercises in years (if it works for you, great) and I don't hurt and my body is in much better balance.

There's no way I could ever go back to the single-joint, isolation and specific "body part" routine.

Started off a bit lighter today to make sure I focused on form and positioning. Felt strong today, could have tried for a PR (my 5RM is 365), but decided not to push my luck. Instead, decided to do so more work with the sumo-style deadlift. For that, 315 felt great, so I went to 335. Had more in the tank there too.

I did mine this way:

5 x 3 at 275
5 singles: 295, 315, 335, 355, 365

Just to keep the heart rate up I did a 200 meter run between each set: 45 laps altogether.

Why come onto a website like crossfit.com and post blatant slander for someone else's style of training? Do we come into your global gym and tell you your intensitys too low or your resting too long? No, we don't. If you don't believe in the crossfit movement, so be it. But please don't invade this forum and try and destroy something you don't understand.

A crossfit newbie.

I'm only 17 and just started crossfit, so I'm trying to get a feel of where my max is and I really started to struggle around 185. My hamstring were jelly after my 5th set/rep so I must have been close. Still developing my technique so I don't want to push it.

Loving CF!

I don't think I have ever truly maxed this lift. The problem isn't my body can't do it. My hands just cant hold on to the bar when lifting it. Is there any way I can strengthen my hands to handle this?

Ryan. Im right there with you man. Isolating is far more effective, which is why i now throw a baseball only from the wrist and elbow. All that winding up i used to do was a waist of time. An my kicks have gotten much better since i stopped putting my hips behind them and keep my leg totally straight.
Seriously though, nothing is wrong with strict pullups if you want to just work that area, but it is not what crossfit is about. No one would do the above example and expect to be effective so we don't train that way. If it makes you happy doing it your way and doing it safely then go for it. Im happy with doing Crossfit.
