CrossFit: Put Strength in the WOD

I hate deadlifting.

I hate moving the weights and putting them on, and I hate the movement in general. But I do it because I have to in order to be strong.

This week, I came across a WOD, or CrossFit Workout, that had a heavy deadlift in it. I did that instead of my normal 5×5 deadlift sequence.

This actually worked out quite well. I didn’t mind deadlifting, and I lifted heavier afterwards.

I learned from now on to put my strength in the WOD — at least for deadlifts.

CrossFit: Who Needs To Walk? That’s No Big Deal…

CrossFit.

I’m unsure why I do the things I do.

I did another workout that made everything burn–to the extreme.

This was another CrossFit Hero WOD (since I’m injured I’m trying to find cardio-based workouts with no wrist extension or pulling)–Donny.

Jingle 7
Deadlift

It was:

21-15-9-9-15-21 (this is the number of reps) of:

Deadlifts at 155 lbs

Burpees

Two moves.  No big deal.

For a normal workout, we usually do just the first half (12-15-9).  Since this is a CrossFit Hero Wod, it’s harder and you go back up the ladder.

Sure.  Why not?

I’ll tell you why not.  Because a few hours later your quads are going to start burning and not stop.  Then the next day your quads will barely extend and contract.  Squatting will be near impossible.  And walking?

Who needs to walk?
