WOD: Thursday

Deadlift
1-1-1-1-1

Post loads to comments.

We train the lifts to get stronger, not to chase a number. Leave your ego at the door and lift to your capacity but not beyond. To safely deadlift, you MUST maintain midline stability by keeping a flat back (natural arch) and a belly full of air. Engage all of the muscles of your abdomen and back to keep your spine held statically neutral. Do not be lazy with your body control. The deadlift is safe providing you use the correct technique. Abandon any lift where you cannot maintain midline stability. Listen to your body. Train your body.
The wise words of Matt Swift.

Watch out for these guys…

    Well done today team.
    For a few this was the first time attempting a 1RM deadlift and it was clear that you were paying due attention to technique so thank you.
    Also, a huge congratulations to those who achieved PB’s today! Getting STRONG!

  2. Thanks to Ruby for finishing off my very funny comment and posting by accident whilst I was cooking breakfast! Hence unfinished sentence.

    1. I like it how they’re avoiding physical contact in case they look gay… fail.

  3. Just read the above info from Matt Swift. So true. I really hurt my back last week not listening to my body, now I am paying the price. It is easy to get carried away at this early stage in crossfit.
