CrossFit Strongman WOD – IMG_5809  Deadlift Challenge

Double-Bodyweight barbell Deadlifts for max reps in one set
* Every rep must be LOWERED UNDER CONTROL.
** Lifter must let go of barbell (on the floor) & re-establish grip before next rep. This forces the lifter to pull the barbell from a DEAD stop. No touch & go!
*** This is max effort in ONE SET. If you leave the platform between reps or have time to take a leak then it’s no longer one set. Stay at the bar, don’t do anything but deadlift. When you let go, go right into your set-up, and pull again.
(Yes, all these requirements make it HARDER. They also make you STRONGER!)

Finisher:
One-arm DB press
     Pick a DB you can  strict press about 5 reps in a row with.
     Max reps strict press in 90 seconds with Left arm ONLY
     Rest 1 minute
     Equal number of reps strict press with Right arm ONLY
Rest 3 minutes & repeat (90s Left, Rest 1 min, match reps Right)

Compare to March 2014
