WOD 24 July: Never judge a book by its cover

24 Jul

Never Judge A Book By Its Cover

How many times have you looked at a WOD and thought “What’s the problem here?”

Well that was what today was all about.

Five rounds for time of:

  • 5 x Deadlift (80% 1RM)
  • 10 x Ring Dips

I did this on Friday to make sure I was happy with the WOD and 6:47 later and I was understanding what the problem was. The heavy deadlifts pool all your blood into your lower half and then you have to go make use of your upper body.  A simple couplet that manages to create a terrific load on the system.

There were some great efforts and my time only just survived with a morning best of 6′ 50″.

Just to make sure we were hitting the right weights we started with some heavy deadlifts to confirm/discover our 1RM.

Some great improvements here.

And we finished with a great little Afterparty of tabbata hand stand holds and/or planks.
