"Rounding of the back is ok..I mean at weights that heavy its going to happen" Great advice..kids get out there pull as much as you can..don't worry too much about form. How that advice can be published on the internet will remain a mystery.
Happy Birthday Jessica Malone! Good luck this weekend at Crossroads Competition! Love you!
Coincidentally, this is basically my Wednesday workout.
to comment #1:
quite acting as if when you're going for a max on a deadlift (weither 1RM, 3RM, or any number max) your form won't give out a little; it is going to happen, no one can have perfect form on a deadlift when its there true max....if you do then you can add at least another 5-10lbs minimum. It's threshold training.
I agree with Comment #1 - If your form breaks down, the weight is probably too heavy for you. I can speak from experience. Rounding out the back on a deadlift is just asking for an injury. Just check out the crossfit forums. They are loaded with athletes who have rounded out their back on a deadlift and now have a bulging disc.
The extended footage had me worried.
The teen in the saint josephs basketball t-shirt needs a different queue. He's is rounding his back.
When he's at the starting position, try "shift your weight back in the heels, knees back."
Then, he may need to raise or lower his butt. Followed by flat back, gorilla back, superman back.
Throw in tactile queues to assist in obtaining correct positioning.
You’re back! Again! We like that about you. As good as rest is it feels good to do a little “relatively high intensity” exercise. It’s another strength day today, the ultimate fix for strength junkies: DEADLIFT. This is the epitome of “I pick things up and put them dooooowwwwnnn.”
This one should make sense to you since we did 5 sets of 5 reps of Deadlift on January 13th. Same gig here except we are doing 3-reps in each set. The standard DL in CrossFit is feet ~shoulder width apart, straight bar. You can use a trap bar if you wish, and you can do Sumo DL if that’s more your style. Just make sure to mark down what you’ve done so that you will be comparing apples to apples when this next comes up.
Ascending weights on the sets. I know, I know…you’re feeling pretty good about yourself now that you’ve been here for a couple of cycles, but straight across with the same really heavy weight is much tougher and should probably be reserved for more experienced folks. Each set is 3 DL; don’t take your hands off the bar until the 3rd rep is completed. Rest 2-4:00 between sets, enough to re-charge but not enough to get cool.
Aim for a PR in the 4th set. If you miss you get another shot at it, and if you make it you can shoot for the moon in the 5th. Hey, I have a good idea! If you did go for a max in the 5-rep session let’s aim for that weight in your THIRD set here. That’s a good target for your progression. You should get a little bigger number for a 3-rep set than your 5-rep max. Are you a true Newbie? Is this your second time ever doing Deadlifts? Same advice as before: you have no business doing a true max here. Drill technique.
Don’t forget to do a warm-up. This is the perfect WOD for you to use the CrossFit Warm-up! And yes, this is STILL all we do today, especially if you are new. This is just day one of 3 days in a row.
Pickin’ up heavy sh…shstuff. 3-2-1…Go.
Children, especially, should learn and practice form first and foremost. At 70lb. bodyweight, my son deadlifts 135lbs., and I've trained and insisted in his form being correct for two years now, before he even came close to pulling that weight. He never rounds his back, I won't let him, period. I understand the point of comment#4, but in regards to this age group. Rounding of the back indicates a host of more intrinsic weaknesses.
Did this yesterday as part of my workout...
DLx3 touch and go reps
(rest 5 mins)
Push press x 3 + Jerk x 2 + Split jerk x 1
(rest 5-10 mins)
20 mins at 85-90% effort:
10x OHS 75#
10 cals Airdyne
10x wall balls
10x Knees to Elbows
6 rnds + 30 reps
(rest 5-10 mins)
100 handstand pushups strict - 8:25
Yea Ingrid!! Superstar repping Texas!
Dang, almost called it! I was convinced it was going to be either a 3x5 press or deadlift...I went with press.
Just 8 days left until Paleo February and I'm stoked to be back on the mainsite.
Crossfit my sweet dark mother; we meet again.
Great to see those young athletes developing strong opening of the hip. Gotta love deadlifts!
WRT technique: It's reasonable to expect that at large loads, the form will deteriorate somewhat, but the cues to fix it should be unrelenting. Heard a lot on the head position, but not on the loss of lumbar spine.
Yes, when you go for max effort, you are going to break form, especially around PR's...
#1, I agree with you that a comment like that should not be published...However, breaking form is acceptable but should be avoided if possible. Are you supposed miss a PR by 5lbs if you know that by breaking form "a little" will help you get there?...at that point, it is up to the athlete to decide, based on her/his level of fitness, strenght, confidence, etc..
Having said that, his form on the demo vid is terrible throughout, not just on the heavy lifts...and he mentors teens?...unacceptable. He's looking down which causes his butt to rise early and his lower back to round up. He salmost performs a stiff leg DL. His athletes all mimick him and all have poor technique as well. It's a damn shame...
Go Ingrid!... #getchyasome

In my opinion, you can't allow teens to lift with form like that. If they are in a competition, I suppose that's one thing (although doubtful), but just for normal training I wouldn't go there. I used to allow my form to break too and I'm lucky I never hurt myself.
I train a lot of teens now and my form standards have got much more strict over time. One of the girls I used to train about 3 years ago hurt her back while we allowed her to continue deadlifting rounded. So I'm talking from experience my man.
By patient. You have these kids for YEARS. No need to rush weight now. Drill technique, technique, technique now so 1) you avoid injury, 2) you're setting them up for rapid gains down the road and 3) you don't have to unteach bad movement down the line.
I've been following crossfit.com WODs and posting since early 2006 and never complain (in a serious manner), but I don't think it's a good thing to post a video of kids lifting with bad form like that.
Horrific demo video. Bad enough that his form is lousy, but completely unacceptable that he allows those he is training to lift with poor form (and even worse that they are teen beginners). Perfect deadlifting form is not optional in training, it is mandatory. If you are an experienced lifter and you deviate from perfect form when doing a 1RM in a competition, then that is fine, but not in training, and certainly not for every single rep of a 3 rep set from the very first lift. Every rep builds muscle memory, which is part of the reason that every rep that he does is so bad, including when he is demonstrating with light weight. Good form is the only way to safely lift the weight and is not an optional extra. That video should not have been posted as a WOD demo. What on earth happened to pursuing excellence and virtuosity? Sorry if that sounds harsh, but I personally feel that a certain degree of harshness is justified in this case.

Took it easy after the PR, legs still a bit DOM'd up from Sean.
120-130-140-145-150 failed on 2nd
Followed by 112 double unders on one attempt.
Correction, failed on 3rd
About the same as my 5x5 a few weeks ago - mmmmmm
For me the key coaching tip when dead lifting is EYES UP, if you're looking up high, it will make you drop your hips and stop you rounding your back.
i would like for everyone who thinks they have perfect form on every lift they do to put a video up for everyone to see. there is noone out there who is pushing for a max have a perfect form. watch the games and most of their form on heavy weight is not perfect in fact some of their form is ugly(like mine)ie:dan bailey and iceland annie. just lift as safely as you feel your body will let you and dont complain about others form.
First time using hook grip with chalk instead of lifting gloves. Love it!
In kg: 140 - 150 - 160 - 165 pr - 150

I got stuck at the knees for what felt like 5-6 seconds with 340. Just couldn't get it any higher. 325 was the same but all the yelling of "UP" made me hang on for dear life screaming and crying until it finally broke and went up all on it's own. Deadlifting, what a strange workout under heavy loads.
Go Navy! Beat Army!

I watched the demo vid last night and commented on it...I was not impressed. I decided to watch the extended footage this morning and I was even more appauled!
OMG, this guy is a disgrace to the sport, he should not be looking after and mentoring those kids. He did not talk about the importance of adressing the bar correctly and having a good set up. As he watches and coaches each one individually, he did not even give any verbal cues about a tall chest, looking forward, weight on heels, neutral spine, activate the glutes and hams first before the lower back, etc. All the athletes could do is go off of the somewhat poor demo he provided by "showing off" his 500 or so lbs lift, and added the comments about "oh yeah, seven months ago I completely tore my achilles tendon and now here I am deadlifting 500lbs"...real good boss!...
Result, all athletes are performing poor and potentially dangerous reps: early butt rise, rounded backs, stiff legs like lifts, just like he demo'd. As he watches each athlete, I saw flaws in all the lifts, which means he saw them too and never made real valuable corrections. He even interrupted a teen under load and told him to hold it (at mid-rep mind you!..what is this guy thinking?!). Simply mind boggling. he is setting those kids up for failure and worse, for injury later....
I know I'm not the only one that picked up on that. I'm just puzzled as to why this vid didn't get rejected at submission. I'm thinking of all the newbies out there watching this vid and thinking this is ghospel. As Seinfeld would put it: That's a shame...

What happened to posting athlete loads, times and rounds everyday? It used to be up here everytime, then it was gone, you brought it back this month but now it's gone again???
Those numbers were fun and inspiring, please post athlete performance again!
Quads and Glutes were so sore from "Sean" this morning that I could barely sit on the toilet.

The 365 was too much too fast.

This was probably my 3 rep max, but I only have 400# so I think it's time to get more bumper plates.

Glad to finally see some improvements.
Felt a sharp tug in my lower back during the second set, stopped. This was too much weight for me and I was stupid, though I think my form was OK. Will go way more gradual next time.
225, 255, 275, 285, 300
Made sure I watched my form too, improvement there. I need to work on my hook grip as I needed wrist straps :-\

Ok so I still stand by my comments earlier, but I definitely don't think Kevin is a "disgrace to the sport." He had some other videos up earlier and his coaching seemed pretty solid. And I don't think his form that bad in the video considering how heavy the weight was.
I just think teens and kids need a different approach when it comes to training. No need to attack his character based on that though. Critiques in coaching are always great, but leave it at that.

Seeking some help -
I'm a level 1, mentoring/coaching some colleagues in xfit. Been working with them for about 2+ months. Overall fitness is up, strength is up, cardio is up. So far general satisfaction from the newbies.
need some good reference material and advice to help me explain/alleviate their concerns with certain aspects.
I have 3 guys who are concerned that they are not going to lose body fat without doing more cardio volume. I have explained the concept that nutrition is the main key to losing body fat, but the conversation will go to how can 5 minutes of an intense WOD like Fran, burn as many calories as 30 minutes of cardio.
I have explained the concept of quality Intensity over volume, which they believe and accept that they are getting fitter and more capable, but not how that can burn more calories and thus decrease body fat.
They all have seen capabilities improve, feel more well rounded, stronger, etc...
225, 275, 315, 365 (1x then fail), 315
Question for trainers
I am a Level 1, been doing xfit for about 4 years. I lead a small group, we do 5 on, 2 off, been doing it since late Oct 12. All of us are in our mid-late 30's.
Thorough good warm-ups, WOD movement practice and then the METCON. Afterwards do practice and developments on gymnastic movements, HSPU, pistols, Muscle-ups, DU, etc... I add a consistent strength portion to the weekly schedule, always doing heavy squats, deadlifts, and either C&J or Snatches, in addition to the METCONs.
The group are all making gains, and generally satisfied with the results. All are seeing gains in strength, cardio and overall fitness.
However, 3 of the guys are taller, larger frames and are concerned about losing bodyfat, and not buying that 5 minutes of Fran will burn as many calories as 30 minutes of traditional cardio.
Looking for thoughful advice and discussion.

Have to say, pretty disappointed in the post. As an older athlete (47) who is living with the cumulative effects of many seemingly small and inconsequential strains and such, I would argue that max lifts have little if any place in the normal Crossfit community…aka normal folks who are looking to become more fit as a means of enhancing their quality of life. Will max efforts make you stronger, certainly; will they make you more prepared for a competitive lifting environment, you bet; but there are many paths, albeit slower ones, to obtain the same strength gains without anywhere near the risk level that you expose yourself to during max efforts. As a final note, as a youth coach of 11 years it is my opinion that max efforts, 3’s, and arguably 5’s have no place in a youth focused training environment. Hammer the mechanics over and over and over, and allow them to progress in loading only in conjunction with ideal form. Every activity inherently is accompanied by risk, as youth coaches we cannot eliminate all of these but at the least we are obligated to eliminate the known ones which can be addressed via programming etc.
Who knew how much firm was key. I stopped at 315 but did it like nothing.
Previous single PR was 365!
I wanted to get the CF communities opinion. I have had back issues since my college football days and use a hex-bar to deadlift. Does the hex-bar change the lift or make it any easier?
Look forward to hearing from you! Kepp working hard!
215 - pushed hard
I'm new to CF and I'm always a little discouraged with my weights and times. Any advice will help.
Still focused on form over load.
Deadlift 340x3(PR) Went for 1RM too - 375(Big PR for me)
A little drama on the CF mainsite today?
Jeez, calm down. One little video and the guy is being Mob Lynched For Time. Get over it. Before you learned what "perfect form" was, I'm sure you had some imperfections that led to it. A rounded back is not the end of the world when limited and known. Pussification of our youth, however, is.
Have a discussion with them about diet. If they are seeing gains in strength and are satisfied, explain to them that similar gains in "sexiness while naked" can be gained by adopting a clean diet. Formula one race cars run a whole lot better on the proper fuel as opposed to 87 octane. I would refer them to the "killing the fat man" series on the journal. When Gary finally pulls the bandaid and goes paleo, the weight sheds off of him.
Just something to consider.
Ultimately if they trust you as a trainer and are patient, all other desirable results will follow.
Best of luck

Stuart, Thank you for the discussion. You hit the nail on the head with one guy concern for "sexiness while naked."
My first comment didn't post, and I forgot to recap in the one that did. I have discussed the concept of Paleo and Zone nutrition, which all agree and some might attempt. Although, a good portion of the thinking is that if I do 30 minutes of cardio, it's ok for me to eat what I want. But if I'm just doing xfit, I need to add more cardio so that I can continue to eat what I want.
What I'm really trying to convey is the concept of how Intensity in the WOD for short duration translates to traditional fitness measurements like how many calories burned. Or that you need more volume to build muscle mass.
How do we explain that type of stuff? I know the concept of load over time = power. Power is the intensity, which is key. I buy it and of course have seen the good results, just trying to better explain it.

Quit ranting on others. It doesnt fit you. It makes you look angry. Nothing else. You dont help anyone saying bad things. I f you want to help the kid in the demo, contact him and try to address his tec problem. dont be that guy (the angry-and stupid- guy)
Everyone keep up the attitude. Attitude is not negotiable.

Stuart and Drryanhess,
Thanks for engaging in some discussion.
I should have put more detail. We have talked about Paleo and Zone, good nutritions benefits, which all agree too and are making attempts at. However the conversation divulges into - 'I do 30 minutes of cardio so I can eat what I want.'
Stuart you nailed it on one of the guys perfectly, the concern being 'sexiness while naked' I laughed out loud when I read it, because those words were damn near spot on.
I'm really trying to explain and understand the communities thoughts and explaination towards how short intense WODs translate to traditional fitness metrics, like calories burned, etc... How do we explain that?
I know and explain that load over time = power, power is intensity, intensity is the key. I buy it and they buy it for performance, and improving functional fitness levels, GPP and all that.
But how do we explain to someone new that they don't need the traditional cardio 30 minutes 3-4 times a week?

I am also appalled by the video- the trainers poor form- his lack of proper correction and queuing of teenagers and the comments that form isn't that important or the guy who has a 70lb kid doing deadlifts! This is why soo many people get hurt! and Crossfit gets the reputation for being reckless.

Ran out of weights at my house to put on the bar...have to expand the collection ;)
115,135,145,165,165 lifted 175 once but could not lift 2 more X's with good form all P's. :)
warm up: 5x 95#, 5x 105#
and one rep at 165 just to see if I could... once was enough!
So this is day 5 for me of crossfit. I was nervous about this one mainly because I blew my back out years ago ... but good form will always bring you home
This crossfit stuff is great for my battered body!
only made 120 once due to my broken pinky! lost grip...

Got up to 215, could have gone heavier but then decided to take it back down to 155 to work on form
Then for good measure I pulled up 385x1 (pr)
Old pr - 365
New pr - 385
DL 5x3: 235-245-255-265-275
Then 1000m row 3:26.4. Painful.
Start slower (1:42-5 first 500), crank final 500 < 1:40. Reverse of what I did ;)

Thank God for foam rollers.
Strict form. Out of weight.

Didn't push too hard since this is first DL attempt since back injury late last year. 1 rep PR is 335 and this felt really good overall. very pleased!

Stronger is fitter. Stronger is more durable. Stronger is safer. 3x3 Max (with proper form) is a great way to progress. I have 2 years on you, and yes I am more careful, but still setting PR's after 6 years of CF.
CFWU-3. Superman. Burgener.
340,350,360,355 then stopped. Right hamstring hurting pretty bad. Pull from prior days.
Disapp. Thought I could've gotten 3rd one today since fourth set was so good. Grip & leg fatigue both contributing factors.
Went up pretty easy. Good job w/chest up & knees out. Remember to get good breath in before rep.
