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.
