Deadlifts and Metcon
Strength: Deadlift 5-5-5-5-5 (increasing weight each set)
Paired up with Dork we hit it pretty hard.
275, 295, 315, 345, 365
I think this is a new PR for me. I havent done a 1 rep max in a long time so I am curious to where I stand on that.
WOD 5 rounds for time 5 Deadlifts @60% of 5 rep max
10 Pushups 15 Situps
I coerced Dork into going first, told him old guys needed more rest and watched him just fly through the rounds. I think he finished in 6:55 which was very impressive. When It was my turn I had decided that I would kill myself to at least match his first few rounds and then see how it went from there. I felt good - that doesnt happen very often. Once i got to the third round I decided I was going to own this wod. Kept after it pretty well. I paused at the bar for just a moment so I would be hard pressed to figure out how to go faster.
5:03. It would have been cool to break 5 minutes but i will take it.
