    From the CrossFit/Brand X forums, scaling info about this WOD along with info about the deadlift:
    ——————————————-
    “I wish I knew how you could overstate the value of the deadlift.”
    –Greg Glassman
    Here are some vids everybody should watch regarding the deadlift whether you are familiar with the lift or not:

    If you are familiar with this lift then you are a Big Dawg today:

    as Rx’d
    Everybody else, if you are unfamiliar with the lift watch the videos above and the use the time today to practice this lift with a piece of PVC pipe or a light barbell.
    A wise investment is the book Starting Strength 2nd edition by Mark Rippetoe. If you don’t have a coach this book will help you understand the lifts. If you do have a coach it will point out how little he/she knows.
    Here is a link to the book:

    Nice work, Natalie and Sara!
    I tried doing just some DL form – without a bar – at home today and my ankle hurt a little, so I’m thinking heavy DLs are not the way for me to expedite healing this thing.
    Yesterday I did:
    bench press 5 X 5
    100
    105
    110
    115 (fail on 4th rep)
    112 (fail on 5th rep)
    5 rounds:
    10 dead hangs
    10 1 pood KB swings
    10 knees to elbows

    Only had time for 6, but this was plenty.

  • Craig_Cinci

    Shouldn’t have done these but:
    425, 445, 465, 475, 485 (f 2x), 480 (f)
    Then:
    8 min AMRAP – 11 rds

    Oh, I love the deadlift.
    135-145-155-165-170(PR)-155-155
    This cycle has destroyed my grip. Attempting these after a 5k row was an overall unpleasant experience.

    245
    265
    275
    285 (f)

    285
    The last time I did this WOD I tweaked my back a little on an ugly 295 PR. I decided a try at 285 was plenty for tonight.

  • max

    405
    415

    435f
    Ran out of time, My legs were absolutely blasted by this last cycle and my form was very U-G-L-Y, but still got the pr.
