#1. That's totally wrong! While yes intensity is key to creating results and increasing strength and power, in order to prevent injury and actual improve one must first master mechanics, then consistency, and finally intensity. Safety, indoctrination, then intensity. So, quality is extremely important. Ugly reps with bad form do nothing but hurt you. You should never sacrifice form for reps.

I feel like I could have gone heavier.

Comment #3 - Posted by: DJD at October 3, 2012 6:18 PM

Should I perform the warm up routine recommend in the video, or should I just do the deadlifts?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Show at October 3, 2012 7:34 PM

I'm a little bummed by his comment about bouncing the weight. It's exactly why some people see staggered gains. I understand the idea that our sport isn't powerlifting, but one really needs to focus on getting maximal work done with each rep. A 5 rep set in this case isn't for maxing, it's work for the future. Just my two cents

Comment #5 - Posted by: Tommy at October 3, 2012 7:46 PM

@Tommy, I agree.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Kevin at October 3, 2012 8:11 PM

agree with #1 & #5 commentary

This is one of the strength workouts is it not? involving multi-joint powerlifting for raw strength gain? Bad form here turns into serious injury under heavy weight. New cf'ers should ensure proper warmup and excellent form before turning it into a deadlift sprint.

#4 - definitely do the warm up, if you cant or dont have time then I wouldnt go for any serious weight.

295...felt good

Comment #8 - Posted by: Cesar P at October 3, 2012 10:53 PM

Did this yesterday with a twist.
I tried to do heavy for time.
Did it with 185kg in 31 min.
The beginning i thought that i was going to do it in 15 min but the reps i got in the more rest i needed to take to maintain good form, wich i agreed with myself before is started was the main focus since the relative big wieght.

did it for time @ 185kg (407 pounds)just the 25 reps in sequence.
started out fast but slowed down alot when i got more reps in. Harder to maintain good form. first half i did in 9 minutes last half took about two times longer.

Thanks for the WOD specific warmup. While the CrossFit Warmup is always a good choice, this warmup seems very helpful for this WOD. I as a CrossFitter working out alone in my garage would like to see more WOD specific warmups in the demo videos.

185-205-225-225-225 held back to work on the consistency of my form.

it's a 5x5 for strength/power so do it with good form and max effort.
Just reset after each rep so you are sure that your form stays good.

Comment #27 - Posted by: martijn cristen at October 4, 2012 5:04 AM

I really dislike the mentality that as long as I can get done, then it doesn't matter that I'm cutting the corners a bit. It's called a "dead lift" not a "bounce lift". Funny that I was talking to my strength coach yesterday about the benefit of good form. If two people are working next to each other with the same amount of weight and one person has sloppy form while the other person is working on perfect form every rep, who will benefit more from the exercise?

Coach, Tony, Dave and the rest of CF HQ need a Hero WOD the mother of all Hero WOD. Make it old school and hard. maybe some bent presses or something like that

5x5 deadlift, no bounce. I only have 225 lbs, so I had to modify...definitely need more weight.
195(8)-215(6)-225(7)-225(8)-225(10)

Is it just me, or do most have their worst deadlift form on the first rep?

125-145-165-185-205(only 4 reps)

was at LA fitness (gym hotel has a deal with) while traveling and thus had men's size bar and no chalk (Poor grip by last heavy set) and couldn't drop the 205lb bar...so only did 4 reps, as I thought I'd have to drop the bar on that last 5th rep, but totally could have done it if I was at home. FELT SUPER STRONG TODAY!!! :)

It is really sad to see the guy doing DL with bounces. It's a half-job. Do it in the hard way without bouncing then you'll reap a result from it.

Comment #44 - Posted by: Paleo Desk at October 4, 2012 8:11 AM

Glad to see others are upset with the advice from the video.
If its a strength lifting day, you want to focus on form and go slow. The "Training for Crossfit" argument he makes- power lifting is part of Crossfit, it's not just all quick metabolic exercises. With his type of mentality, one should have sprinted the 5k from a couple of days ago. That would be no good. Crossfit is a multifunctional program- most days are quick WODs, yes, but the great thing about Cfit is that it peppers in powerlifting, endurance running, sprints, a little bit of everything.
Poor advice and poor form. I would not want to go to his gym, where the goal seems to be Quick is Better than Right.

Comment #46 - Posted by: phill 37°21'41"N 118°23'43"W at October 4, 2012 8:24 AM

I fairly new to PERFORMING the WOD's and not because I am new to CF, but because I practiced for 3 months getting good form.

Why? Because that is what I liked about CF when I first started researching the "sport" (or program...whatever you you want to call it). You can clearly see that on the video he does not have the correct lumbar curve from the dead position.
I am all about encouraging and faster stronger, but this video should have not been shown since there are people like me who do not go to a CF gym but rely on these videos for demonstration. Luckily I have done my HW and know that this is NOT correct form...and is NOT a deadlift.
Bad call on this being the demo video.
Positive-love the warm-up.

DL's felt great, my grip was suffering from hang cleans yesterday. I have no idea how long it took. Went down to 225 after WOD and did a few sets of higher reps for a little burn out and to work on form.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Geno at October 4, 2012 10:21 AM

I can understand why homeslice was talking about "bouncing the reps" but this is supposed to be a strength development workout NOT a competitive metcon. I would allow a little bounce on Diane but certainly not on a working set of 5x5 heavy DL. Would you bounce a barbell off your chest for heavy benchpress (you shouldn't). The rest of his instruction seemed pretty on point though and I'm intrigued by his band warm up.

285-305-305-315-300

Proud of starting weight and getting 3 reps @ 335 which could be seen as an improvement over 120503, but when I total the pounds moved during the workout I came up short today by missing 2 reps at the higher weight.

120503 total weight = 7550
121004 total weight = 7230

Could have easily used 325, got all 5 reps and bested my total weight from last time, but not have the satisfaction of going to 335.

Comment #72 - Posted by: fargingbastige at October 4, 2012 11:39 AM

Seems like lots of people are taking his words out of the context of his actions. It's not a true bounce, he's just moving quickly at the bottom. It's like 2 inches. And he never sacrificed his back for this "bounce."

Com'on guys where're here to get stronger or what?

Deadlift means the bar starts its path from dead stop at a standard height, if the bar is in motion and starts moving just a few inches higher, it is easier nuff said

I could crush my DL PR anytime if I deadlift a bar few inches off the ground or, worse, start from bar in hands standing and bounce up the load

let's just no rep who bounces, and this debate is over!

New to crossfit, but not new to training.
I did all the warm-ups, but I still couldn't keep a straight back. Have a little lower back pain now, nothing serious, but I'm disappointed in myself because I know I did it wrong and arched my back. Any tips for keeping proper form? Help! Thanks.

Felt my back arch on the 405 so dropped the weight and kept up the intensity.

Super fun WOD and felt surprisingly easy!

155-165-190-215-225 (4 reps then failed but a huge PR)

240 was my prior 1 rep max so I was super impressed that I made it this high, started way to low cause I didn't know what to expect.

back felt a little off on the last one, so I cut the heavy stuff short, dropped it down to 115, and did 100 DL reps broken 50-30-20 with the last 20 in sumo position.

A bit less than last time, but still a solid outing. Probably demonstrated a little better form, too.
