“GFY” Tabata Deadlift Challenge
You have 20 seconds do as many reps of deadlift as you can. Rest 10 seconds. Repeat this 7 more times for a total of 8 sets. Your score is counted by total number of reps in 8 sets.
Weight – 315 lbs(m)/225lbs(w)
warmed up – 225 x 5; 285 x 7
scaled to 225 – 10, 7, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 – 47 reps
like to try this again and see if i can do 1 rep each round at 315lbs
Abs – 100 v-ups
So I have my youngest cousin,15 yrs old, staying with me for a week who is starting to get into fitness routines. I told him routines are the enemy! I introduced him to the basic crossfit movements and then did 'Fran'together. He finished in 7.28. After a twenty minute break he said :"what else do you have for me?" So we went into Tabata This (Row, Box jump, Push-ups, Sit-ups, Squats)to which his response was an immediate vommiting session followed by "What's next?" We finished with a 1 Rep Max of weighted Pull-ups. In all I was very proud of his eagerness to push himself through the pain and keep going.....my guess is he'll be a bit sore tomorrow but he is hooked.
Made up 130727
Total 21:24 75# push jerks
Before that 5 rounds of sled pulls 400ft. 60#. 30 sec rest between each round 8 minutes

@JoeyT, that's fantastic!
Well done for winning the world fittest female, I'm certain you will not get tired of hearing that accolade, just a bit surprised there are only 6 comments re Sam great effort.
I would also send my congratulations to all the guys and girls who took part, and to the team from C/F for putting on such a GREAT event.
Great effort Sam congrats!!
Who is this rich guy that won the men's??
Decided to test my "LINDA" time.
Deadlift 255, Bench 170, Power clean 125.
May 11th time: 28:00
Todays time: 23:59!!!! Upped my time by 4minutes!!!
Been trying hard to get back on the wagon. Bones just feel old.
What just happened to my hip?
I was doing abmat situps with butterfly legs. Somewhere in there a tendon or something clicked in my hip. Thought nothing of it as I've had many joints pop in my life... Like every day. By that evening, my hip felt very tight so I really mashed and rolled my hip. I had a painful night and today I can hardly walk and I have very limited range of motion when i rotate my leg... Like moving my foot from duck foot to pigeon toe. Need to see my doc but am leaving today for a week holiday.
Has anyone else messed up their hips doing abmat situps? It's the only thing I can think of that could have caused it.
Well done Sam, well done Rich and all the other machines out there. Awesome show crossFit Inc.!
