Five rounds for time of:
140 pound Deadlift, 5 reps
I did this one back in July with a time of 9:54 — but I also did 170 pound deadlifts then. I remember the deads being singles and being really, really painful. My burpees today were the throw yourself on the ground like you just don’t care variety, but my chest and nose touched the floor on every rep so I guess I was deep enough. I know one thing, they sure hurt!
Update: This afternoon I did the split jerk workout from the main site:
Split Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps
I did this in my apartment, which has about two square feet of open space. I also was bumperless, so dumping was not an option. On the first warm-up jerk I actually stuck my back foot into the couch, so I had to clear a little more space. I know I could have done 110# all the way across, but I was so worried about the space, the metal plates, etc. that I decided to play it safe and just go with 105#. I could see my reflection in the TV, and I noticed that I’m not locking my right elbow out and that I’m pressing it just a tad. I have no idea if this is something I do regularly or if it’s just attributable to trying to do a big lift in a little space.
