    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:

    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:

    smoked from yesterday. took this as a marginal intensity break. worked up to 405#. Felt pretty good. Then did 2X5 315#. Also felt pretty good.

  • Craig_Cinci

    This was a disaster. I could barely pick anything up. Hands are really painful. Yesterday’s tears were the first in about a year.
    445, 465, 475(fx3), 470(f), 455(f)
    I concur with Torch. Tommy V did a number on me.
