Friday - Heavy Deads!
Deadlift workout at the games last weekend.
We managed to make it to the 9am class at East Sac today. The workout was the CrossFit Games 2009 Event 2 (modified) - The Deadlift. Deadlift every 30 seconds adding 10# to the bar each rep. Men's Rx starts at 315 and women's Rx starts at 185. You will be paired with a partner who will add 10# to the bar every 30 seconds until you can no longer complete the rep.
Donna: 235# Matt: 385#
Neither of us made our 1 rep PR's but this is a very different way of hitting heavy deadlifts. Great stuff!
Tonight we watched Man on Wire, a documentary about a French wire walker who walked between the twin towers of the World Trade Centre. Great movie, well worth seeing.
