Thanks for visiting us in Atlanta at CrossFit Midtown. We had a blast filming today's WOD demo!
Another 3-day cycle concludes and with it we are halfway through your first month of CrossFit. How’s it going? This month has been a month for the ages. The wizards at HQ have given you all kinds of classic CrossFit WOD’s, an all-around killer 2 weeks. Very cool.
Constantly varied FUNCTIONAL movements. Coach has called exercises like the deadlift and the squat “irreducible”: they cannot be broken down into some group of component parts that can be trained separately. These are also basic movements; they are integral to daily life. What could be more elemental than picking something up off the ground?
The DEADLIFT (DL) is one of the classic power lifts, the slow lifts. 5-5-5-5-5: 5 work sets of 5 reps seeking a 5-rep max. Like all of our mono-structural strength WOD’s you should rest 2-5:00 between sets, enough to re-charge but not enough to get cool. The standard DL in CrossFit is done using a straight bar and a narrow stance. Prefer the Sumo stance or using a trap bar? Cool. It’s still you vs. you. DL is new to you? Like before, if this is a new exercise for you and you are doing this alone without a coach you have no business doing any kind of max. Use today as a skill day and learn the movement.
Warm up first. Take a look at the CrossFit Warm-up (CFWU) in the FAQ. Do some mobility work. Something to get your muscles warm, get your blood moving. Set up your bar and do some warm-up deadlifts with relatively light weight. Hold on a minute…you’ve got bumper plates on that bar, right? Don’t be banging or dropping metal plates! The warm-up reps don’t count as part of your five work sets. Think about your DL history and aim for a new PR in the 4th set, keeping set 5 for a big PR or a re-try if you miss. Don’t let go of the bar until after your 5th rep. Newbies should be doing ascending sets, each set heavier than the last.
Historically all lifting aids have been discouraged chez CrossFit. Philosophically if you are training for the unknown and the unknownable you should train as if you just happened upon something that needed lifting. Having said that, if you are more comfortable wearing a weight belt go ahead. Gloves? Well, a rather famous strength coach has suggested that if you do wear gloves you should make sure they match your purse. That’s a better line than it is good coaching IMO. I work with my hands in my day job; the quality of my diet depends on the health of my hands. I wear gloves for lots of stuff. Your call. The only thing that we all seem to agree on is that straps to avoid grip failure probably don’t make sense.
Lots of folks really like to pick up heavy stuff. Here’s your chance. 5 sets of 5 deadlifts. Pick ‘em up and put ‘em dooowwwwn. 3-2-1…Go.

I am very grateful for the lessons learned this past weekend and look forward to more certs in the future. Special thanks to Jason for closing his box this weekend...

What an amazing weekend at Rainier Crossfit for the CF Kids Course. I had expectations of learning lots of cool and fun cues to teach little ones but what I learned was far more valuable and profound. What a great opportunity it is to be able to help children not only become more fit but also help them in so many other ways; from improved self-esteem, gaining a feeling of accomplishment, better health, nutrition, etc... all in a super fun and safe environment. Thanks to all the great trainers and coaches. Everything you do for CF Kids is priceless!!!

CrossFit level 1 Stockport Manchester UK. Suburb seminar, excellent tutorials, great coaches and fantastic people. Big shout to Carl Dickson for being an excellent host. Thanks to all involved for making the experience memorable. My CrossFit journey continues... #proudtobecrossfit3d!
I had an absolute blast this weekend at CrossFit Atlanta! All the staff members were fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed just hearing them speak about CrossFit. There was a lot of serious, "hey you need to pay attention" moments, but there were a lot of moments where the trainers would cut up and goof off with not only the other trainers, but also with the athletes that attended the course. Seeing those moments take place made the weekend tons more enjoyable. The knowledge and insight that the trainers brought to the table was second to none, and I enjoyed every minute of it. All of the trainers; Chuck, Chris, BP, Bethany, Maggie, Nicole, and Jordan all did a fantastic job of training, and provided unparalleled coaching and advice.
Level 1 Reebok Stockport - great weekend, great coaching and learning, great people and great craic. Did that kid end up doing the rugby tackle challenge with Henry Paul?
Awesome Level 1 Cert at CrossFit KoP this weekend! Thanks to the amazing staff I learned so much! One of my best experiences as a CrossFitter.

Holy double feature, Batman! Thanks to the CrossFit KOP seminar staff for sharing your knowledge, insight and love of CrossFit with us.

I learned so much, including how much more I need to learn.
CrossFit MIDTOWN is AWESOME! I joined last October, and I have gained a new FAMILY! Lis Saunders is an awesome coach, and a great businesswoman! I look forward to more WODtastic FUN this year!!

Go to the CF Games Competitors Course and learn from 3 of the longest tenured, consistently high finishing athletes around!
Eric, Speal, and Matt share all their knowledge of what works for them and other competitors. They are not only great athletes but incredible coaches. The course is professionally done and streamlined.
If you want to improve yourself as a coach or an athlete, then this is the class to go to. Don't go pursuing mediocrity or reputations of other coaches. There is no magic program out there. Get it straight from the best that CrossFit has to offer.
warm up: 5x 75#, 5x 85#
Such an amazing and inspiring weekend in Tomball, Tx. Thank you so much to Kurtis and the amazing crew! I learned so much and can't wait to teach others. Thank you!!! :)

Thank you CrossFit KOP for hosting CL1 training this past weekend! An even bigger thank you to all of the wonderful instructors for the time they spent presenting, coaching and helping to build our knowledge and guide us we begin our journey as CF Coaches.

Had an awesome weekend on CF L1 RCF Stockport in Manchester, UK. Thanks to Karl and the crew for your knowledge bombs and truly excellent advice and support. Was great to meet loads of new peeps to, looking forward to putting it all into practice
Didn't have a clue where to start. 205 seemed like a good idea.
I feel like next time I'll do better. I felt strong at 305, maybe 325 next time.

Amazing Level 1 seminar at Reebok CF Manchester. Karl Steadman brilliant coach and great at firing us up and making us laugh. Denise Thomas - bad jokes but an amazing coach and genuine love for passing forward the knowledge, Davs best beard, muscle ups and cool demeanour. Hi 5 to Rob, Fed and the other staff. Thank you all genuinely. Hope to see you all again.
I wanna say thank you to Aimee from CF KOP for opening up her gym for the L1 over the weekend and another thank you to all the awesome Seminar staff for giving such amazing, valuable information.

Thank you NorCal Crossfit for a great seminar. The Coaches and instructors were very informative and made the lectures interesting. Loved the break out sessions, but he best part was my PR on Fran! :) Now, just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I passed so I can begin the next step of my xfit journey as a trainer and help others fall in love with crossfit!
Great cert weekend at CF KoP. Thanks to Aimee for hosting, and to the whole crew (Mike G, Austin, James, Mat, Mel, et al) for their energy and passion. Well worth the drive and the soreness. Great to go through the experience with my brother - the family that Frans together, stays together!
I think I had another 15-20kg to go, but had no more plates.
If any of you want to become a better coach, than attend the CFK course. Great staff as in any cert, but this staff was passionate about coaching, not just kids but coaching us as well. Thanks to Rainier CF for hosting, my dream box.
Had an amazing time at the Orlando Certification at crossfit country. Amazing coaches, incredible group of people and just an overall awesome experience.
225- 245- 265- 285- 295 (lbs.)
All I can say is the crew teaching the L1 in NYC was second to none. I came out of the class with so much more knowledge than what I went in with. I really had an awesome time and can't wait to use what I've learned from the NYC team to help others improve their entire CF experience! Ill be doing my own slow clap again for these guys!

Very new to Crossfit and Weight training in general. I am loving it and can't get enough! Still working on my form but getting the hang of it.
Still struggling with cleans and snatches...work on my form with PVC everyday!
Felt like any more weight and shoulders would begin to collapse.
NorCal Crossfit CF-L1 was AMAZING!! So informative and helpful. Justin was fantastic at giving all the lectures and adding humor to make it fun! Pat, Jason, Hollis, Dan, and Michelle were wonderful with the break out groups. Eye opening experience into the world of CrossFit! Can't wait to use my new knowledge to help other excel in their fitness goals!
Today was a Strength day for us in Squats. So we subbed Deadlifts with Squats, but stuck with the 5 rep per set model.

I think I could have lifted a bit more, but my grip wasn't having it. I reduced the weight in set 5 so I wouldn't drop it, then realized that I probably could have made 225 again if I had used a mixed grip (or had some chalk). Dang...

Had an AWESOME time at CrossFit NYC this weekend. The trainers were inspiring and always had an answer for my endless questions. Nadia, Karianne, Jenn, Keith, Greg, and my boy Bobby were all brilliant. Congrats to everyone who made it through the weekend! Can't wait to get my results!!!
Stopped there. Could have gone heavier, just not tonight. Try starting lower, and making bigger "jumps" between sets next time (i.e. 275-325-375-425-???)
Combined the "Lynne" and today's WOD. First time doing heavy dead lifts in a long time so I was happy. M/36/5'11"/185
Bench @ 185 21-15-14-11-12
Pullups (strict) 17-12-11-9-9
M/ 38/ 136 lbs/ 5'-6"
I was a bit tight and stiff starting this WOD
I did a decent warmup with burgener warmup, DUs and regualr stretching, as well as a bit of concentration on the hamstrings and glutes.
95 lbs x 10 super slow and low
135 lbs x 5 super in control, working on activating the posterior chain
185 lbs x 5
215 x 5 (grip is what needs to get a little broken in, as it's my limiting factor usually)
235 x 5 focusing on great movement and exploding up after tensioning the bar (left arm is tight and shoulder and elbow aren't fully extending, which sets me a bit off center)
WOD REAL SETS:
255 x 5 (great speed and not too hard at all)
275 x 5 (same)
295 x 5 (felt great)
305 x 5 (felt good... I really thought I had a bit left and movements were solid, & grip was o.k.)
315 x 5 (went o.k., with all reps unbroken and decent speed, but I may have rounded slightly because I started adn was adjusting my grip.)
I was focusing on keeping my shins really vertical and my posterior was working well for the heavier sets
I did 4 rounds with about 30 seconds rest inbetween each of:
2 x 50 foot plate drive on floor (70, 80, 90, 100 lbs) I was going with good speed and only stopped for a few seconds at the 50' mark and then came back. Nice posterior burn at. Good stretch adn then home.
Had an awesome time at the L-1 cert this weekend in Tomball, TX. Great group of trainers there who all did a great job and added something different to the weekend. Special thanks to Kurtis who kept us engaged and focused throughout the entire weekend. It was also fun getting to meet Dave and Camille and watch them throw some weight around at lunch.
Stopped short to save low back. Weight felt light
185x5 squat clean
205 255 305 315 320.
255# Straight across (PR is 270)
Did 150 x WBS, then worked to 295 x 5 DL. 480th.
Tweaked low back getting 135 off the rack. Warmed up w/ back ext/squats, worked up to 275x5 for a couple sets but not a good DL day. Luke.
5 x sets of 315x 5, PAC
AM, garage, patchnight. clean paleo for a week now
Hurt my back recently, which is what led me to crossfit because i was resting and thinking about a change in workout philosophy. I have done 300lbs but my hamstring like to tighten up during heavy deadlifts. I hope that as I continue with crossfit, they will loosen up. but below is what I did. I feel confident in my next try.
185 x 5
205 x 5
225 x 5
245 x 5
255 x 5
I also did the next sets because I felt I needed some extra work because i could not reach my full potential in the deadlift.
135 x 10
165 x 10
185 x 10
225 x 5
135/155/185/205/225 grip wasn't strong enough, had to readjust every rep @ 225

recovering from a broken leg and trying to figure out what I can do properly and safely

fifth set was touch and go. either way 375 is a PR, at least since I've been recording in the comments since June 2012. was wondering why my DL has gone down over the past few months and after watching the demo video realized how bad my form has been lacking recently. touch and go kills your power and strength. need to control and stop the weight on the ground.
235 - failed on third

Ran out of plates at home, felt like I could have gone a lot heavier...
CF Coaches prep @ NorCal was the best!!! FIrst off the facility is great and the coaches were amazing. I recommend it for any coach no matter how long you have been doing this. It will help with you quick cues and eye for mistakes.
In keeping w the WOD post and then an excuse trend....
Sun was in my eyes.... Did Fran/ Karen/Lucy right before... I broke my neck a week before and had a hamstring transplant yesterday..... So could have done the 400lbs like everyone else otherwise..... Maybe next time but will prob get a hangnail....
295 (5x pr)
Another 10 pound increase over last time. Grip is getting difficult at these weights, but felt solid otherwise. Started mixed grip in the middle of set 4.
5x5 DLs = 225-240-255-245-245
Working back to 300+ after straining back on DLs Oct 2012

Touch and go well below my pr just got over the flue a week ago so that's what I'm blaming it on 8-) oh and the cold haha
Little behind schedule:
85 x 4 then failed fifth (mental)
1k run wu 4:56. abmat x 15 after.
sore hamstring, but did it anyway to see what I could do.
big improvement. It must be the kettlebell swings...
175-225-275-295-325(f on fifth rep ;0)
Then worked back down the ladder starting at one and adding 2 reps per weight decrease:
1-325, 3-295, 5-275, 7-225,
Then 20-135 to wear myself out.
I'm a day late
Used Wendler's 5/3/1 to get percentages for first 3 sets. Loaded last 2 sets based on first 3 results:
275# all sets, done at the top of each minute (explosive)
250, 275, 300, 325
Felt like garbage, still sore from 150 wall balls, finished with 3 sets of 5 of 225# focusing on form.
215, 255,285x1, 245, 225, 225 wacthing video helped. My bar was four inches from shins. I found out I had a bad form. Thank you again. My ninth CF workout.
focused on keeping the bar close and staying on my heels and seemed to help
240, 280, 315, 335, 365
Did on Monday Jan 14th
maxed at 300lbs

Nice to get that 365 back up off the ground. Goal is 405 this year. I want those 4 plates on there!!
275 285 290 290 290. At home, so used all the weight I had.
5 minutes rest in between sets.
225 235 245 back not feeling quite right
I loved the level 1 course at reebok CrossFit Stockport, the staff are amazing and an amusing bunch, thanks guys!
Like last time. Touch and go, breath on top. 150 felt like it didn't look very good, so I refrained from trying a new PR.
Done right after 1RM front squat PR @ 108kg
Metcon (chipper) in the morning.

Losing grip on 104.
225, 275, 300, 325, 345
CF newbie, still developing form/technique in my garage gym. Probably could have gone higher, but didn't want to risk injury. Need to be more comfortable with the lift first.
