Dead-lift 1x5

After a thorough warm-up complete one set of 5 dead-lifts. The weight chosen should be 5 pounds heavier than the last time we did them on 120709 or maybe, for you, it was 120227. If this is your first time doing these, choose a heavy but manageable weight and record it for next time.


As many reps as possible in 3 minutes of:

This is part 1 of why you should wrap your thumb around the bar and not over the bar. Click HERE for part 2.

You see a better way to do pull ups or to keep your shoulders healthy during pull ups. I see, why you are having trouble with overhead squats, jerks, and maybe even push presses. Watch both videos and see if you can't see what I see.

  2. 1x5=284#
    56 Burpees

    Couldn't quite hold the 20 Burpee/min rate I was shooting for.

    Great noon class today!

    Didn't seem like a lot of work, but Julie and I were both a little shaky after that one.

  4. DL: 404x5. Felt solid. I couldn't have done this without the mobility work. I was feeling very tight when I woke up this morning.

    56 burpees. Paced a little too much during the 2nd minute.

    Nice work, noon class!

  10. DL- 198#- it was a 11# jump from July. I was a little hesitant going up 11# vs 5#, but in July I wrote I could have gone up and I was feeling strong today, so I went for it and glad I did. Tara, it was fun lifting with you! I've missed ya girl!

    42 Burpees....yay burpees!!

  19. Dane Says:
  20. 330# on deadlift.
    55 burpes.

    I could have gone a little faster on the burpes during the first 1:30 (got 24 in the first half and 31 in the 2ndd half). DL felt pretty good, reps 1-4 were done with descent form and then it went to hell on rep 5 but I got it!

    Nice work 5:30.
