WORKOUT OF THE DAY

110225 Friday: Deadlift x 1

By jerry Comments

110225 Friday: Deadlift x 1

Plot to set a PR not match it.

If my PR is 415 and I want 425 I would go: 135×3, 225×3, 275×2, 325×1, 375×1, 405×1, 425×1

(I like a longer ramp-up, so this is 7 sets).

Remember once you get up to your last set or two take 5-6 minutes rest between attempts. If you set a PR, walk away and celebrate! If you miss a PR lets figure out your weak area and what special exercises we need to focus on to improve.

Compare to 101231

Compare to 101210

Alt wod: “Michael” 3 rounds of 800 run, 50 back extensions, 50 situps

    3k Row = 12:18 -> some great tips from Pete S.

  2. Joe Hart says:

    WOD : 315 , failed twice at 365 – disappointing

    on the positive side – was able to get multiple HSPUs on rings

  3. Fred says:

    Posted 195, but thanks to the 6:45am class that realized I was using a men’s bar with 1lbs. I surpassed my previous of 203:) Thanks Pete!!

  8. Deadlift x 1 – 220 lbs PR

    Also, according to Harold & Kevin, an unassisted pullup! I’m not completely satisfied with it, but will take it.

  9. Deadlift x 1 – 220 lbs PR

    Also, according to Harold & Kevin, an unassisted pullup! I’m not completely satisfied with it, but will take it.

  10. Deadlift x1 – 315# then tweaked my hip on 335#…very frustrating. Great to see Durk though and share a bar. The girls at 9:15 were pulling heavy bars today!

  11. Jerry Hill says:

    425 hook grip, with a belt.
    FUN!!

  12. Mark Davis says:

    375# – Second 10# PR this month.
    Had a nice little dogfight with 385# MarkyD guarantee for next time.
    Lunch bunch was rockin today. What a group and some serious pulls.
    PRs for Chad, Vinnie, John, Dwight, Heather, Danny me and more.

  13. Kevin Hare says:

    455, then jumped to 505 and failed twice. Not feeling it today.

  14. Laurie Wasko says:

    215. Tied my PR. Failed on 230 and 225, and I think even 220. Butt kept shooting up. Oh well.

    485, FINALLY!

    After Party: Thruster work. (I wish it was as dirty as it sounds)

  20. 335 PR. Beat previous PR by 20 pounds. Felt actually not too bad. Thought about going higher, but decided it was a good day.

    Lower back is tight tonight.
