There were two parts to this CrossFit WOD. The first was to work up to a deadlift 1 rep max.
Congratulations to G-Money, Sprite and any others who actually managed to set a new personal best in the short time allotted!
Then athletes set their barbells to 50% of their deadlift 1 rep max and completed sets of 15, 12 and 9 power cleans as quickly as possible restring approximately 5 minutes between sets. It was a fun workout because most of us could complete it RX’d.
It was no surprise to see Bruiser, Hard Rock & Still Waters (freshly returned to Vancouver after Christmas vacation) dominate this one each at very different loads.
The men’s competition was much tighter. With a 315# deadlift Dangers set the pace early with 271 points. Brick fell just shy of that target scoring 269 also based on a 315# deadlift. But it was Mr. Fantastic putting all to shame scoring 278 based on a 325# deadlift!
It was great to see everyone taking a crack at RX’d loads.
CrossFit Empower. Another fine Vancouver day, another great CrossFit WOD. https://www.empowereverybody.com/get-started/
