TUESDAY 091117

For Time:

Three rounds of:
Deadlift 275 pounds, ten reps
Ten burpees

Post time to comments.

Don't be a hero on this one. Go with a weight you can reasonably deadlift four or five times, not just once. Probably somewhere between half to two-thirds of your 1 rep max. Take the time to reset fully for each rep.

Remember, intensity trumps volume, and the guys this WOD is designed for have a 500-pound deadlift. Yeah, that's alot.

scaled deadlift to 2/3 of 1RM = 205
Probably should have done a bit more, but it was good to focus on form as I got tired with this work weight.

6:30-ish, scaled to 205', which is 2/3 of 1RM.

I took the "don't be a hero" advice on this one.

Nice work on the 275 Jeff.

I changed my deadlift form which I think will be good in the long run, but right now it has made the deadlift alot more difficult.

I think I might have been able to go with slightly more weight, but not much.
